Teltronics Offers New SIP-based Unified Messaging Platform

The communication solution provider said it will integrate Esna Technologies' unified messaging system with its 20-20 communication platform.

Teltronics wants to save its customers big bucks by offering a new integrated communications service on one platform.

The Sarasota, Fla.-based communication solutions and services provider announced Nov. 17 that it will begin to integrate its 20-20 telephone switch with Esna Technologies SIP (session initiation protocol) unified messaging platform.

Teltronics 20-20 communication system includes digital telephony and VOIP (voice over IP) capabilities.

The 20-20 platform is a non-blocking digital system that can support networked as well as stand-alone system requirements; it provides a full tandem of switching features and standard and advanced calling features.

For its part, Esna Technologies, which is based in Ontario, Canada, offers a Microsoft-based application platform that gives users the ability to access and manage their communications.

Some of the features in this platform include multilingual speech-enabled auto attendant, voice mail, text-to-speech and wireless device support.

This platform interfaces with voice mail systems that use standard network protocols, such as voice mail systems that use standard network protocols.

"Integration is a transparent interface into our 20-20 switching system, which is accomplished without the use of analog voice mail cards," Richard Begando, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Teltronics, wrote in an e-mail to eWEEK.

"It reduces the cost of the system, provides a much smoother interface into the system and provides additional benefits to the customer," Begando added.
