8×8 today announced the availability of an enterprise version of its hosted IP PBX phone service.
The solution is intended for deployment in larger organizations located in either a single building, a campus environment or distributed across multiple locations.
Called 8×8 Virtual Office Enterprise, it is the latest generation of 8×8’s broadband agnostic hosted IP PBX business phone solutions.
Bryan Martin, 8×8 chairman and CEO, said that unlike premise-based PBX phone systems that require a significant financial investment plus management and maintenance resources, the business phone solution delivers advanced PBX calling features combined with cost-effective IP dial tone service.
He said this eliminated the need for expensive on-site equipment.
"Core enhancements to the Virtual Office hosted PBX platform and additional redundancy in our network now enable us to offer this solution to larger organizations that are analyzing the cost and functionality of their current telecommunications infrastructure alongside a requirement for high quality, availability and redundancy from this mission critical service," he said.
8×8 recently upgraded its service infrastructure, deploying a new triple redundant architecture across three independent data centers with each data center connected to redundant IP access providers.
Martin said this new architecture allows for failure of any software component, server, cluster or even a complete data center failure without affecting service to the end customer.
