New Digium Switchvox 80 and 300 Series Appliances – Now Smaller and More Powerful

Digium recently released new Switchvox 80 and 300 series appliances for the SMB market, replacing the older Switchvox 65, 305 and 355 appliances.

The new Switchvox 80 and 300 series have updated technology, smaller form factor, green design and are competitively priced.  Switchvox 80 replaces 65, 310 replaces 305, and 360 replaces 355.  The older Switchvox appliances (65, 305, 355) are discontinued as of July 30th (limited stock remains, check with us for availability).

If you’re a current user of the older Switchvox appliances, you can upgrade by purchasing a cold spare of the appliance that you choose instead of purchasing Switchvox with the software license.  Then you can upload the last backup to the new appliance and be back up and running!  Just make sure the Switchvox software version is 5.7.1 or newer. The old appliance can be put to good use as a failover cold spare for your disaster recovery plan.

See which one of the Digium Switchvox appliances is the best fit for you via the convenient comparison chart below.  You can build your custom bundle via our easy system configurator or simply contact us today for quote!
