From now thru Dec 31, 2013 March 31, 2014 get free Switchvox User Training ($995 value) with purchase of any eligible Digium Switchvox system or software. The Digium Switchvox training, Introduction to Switchvox: User Interface On-Line Training – English, is ideal for new users that want to learn how to get started using their Switchvox business phone systems.
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.

Digium just introduced two new additions to their gateway family: the G400 (4-T1/E1/PRI ports) and the G800 (8-T1/E1/PRI ports). These new VoIP gateways are higher density appliances designed to connect legacy voice technologies (T1/E1/PRI) to VoIP as well as transcoding SIP protocols between VoIP devices and/or service providers. Digium G400 supports up to 120 concurrent calls while G800 supports up to 240 concurrent calls.
New features include:
Higher density with 4 and 8 digital ports
Second Ethernet port – The second Ethernet port can be used for separate management LAN connectivity or as a secondary route for VoIP calls. – Ability to configure up to two VLANs per physical Ethernet. The VLANs can be assigned any of the 4096 VLAN tags via GUI configuration.
Hardware reset switch to restart the gateway appliance or to reset its GUI password.
