South African company launches telephony solution

March 5, 2010 • Mobile and Telecoms

South African telecommunications development company, Far South Networks, has introduced a complete telephony solution in a box it calls Com.X1, targeted at SMEs.

The product, the first hardware PBX designed and manufactured in South Africa, incorporates lightening protection and hardware echo cancellation and has been developed specifically for African markets.

Grant Broomhall, Managing Director of Far South Networks, said the newly launched package was suitable for SMEs in South Africa, being a feature-rich and cost effective telephony solution.

“Com.X1 is the perfect solution for SME businesses wanting a feature-rich solution that can be easily managed without having to fork out an excessive amount of cash, and is perfectly capable of competing on the world stage with other new telephony solution entrants”, commented Adrian Bush, Managing Director Even Flow Distribution, one of South Africa’s prominent VoIP hardware distributors and official distributor for Far South Networks.

COM.X1 is backed by IP-based software that includes standard advanced features such as auto attendant, call recording and voicemail-to-email. The package is configured and managed via a web interface that allows easy set ups of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) on PBX.

The IP PBX market has developed rapidly in the past few years in South Africa, partly due to the new rich and cost-effective solutions, compared to the traditional legacy solutions.

Founded in 2006 by electronic engineers, Grant Broomhall and Michael Walton, Far South Networks is a provider of IP technology including VoIP, telephony solutions and products.
