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.
