New beroNet Modular Gateway 2 Range Suitable for Small Offices

May 18, 2017

The decision to move to VoIP can be exciting and challenging for businesses of any size. There are a number of variables and parameters to consider, particularly for smaller offices that may want to reap the benefits and features of a VoIP-based communication system but have budget and management constraints.

We discussed the difference between VoIP gateways and IP-PBXs in a previous article, highlighting their various features, benefits and suitability based on business type and size. Small and home offices (SoHo), typically with 10 employees or less, would do well to consider a modular VoIP gateway for their communication and conferencing needs. beroNet, a company specializing in VoIP technologies and gateways, recently announced its beroNet Modular Gateway (News - Alert) 2 range is in public beta.

The new gateway series offers increased app support and a microSD slot, enabling enhanced SIP-to-SIP session border controller (SBC) functionality. The product range is designed to blend VoIP hardware with simple management tools, including the beroNet zero configuration PBX (News - Alert) app, which offers static configuration. The PBXs are able to support up to three beroNet Modules as well as any combination of BRI, PRI, FXS and FXO. They also work with the beroNet Cloud for remote device connectivity tracking, management of device settings, device firmware updates and the ability to create and restore backups.

“Our focus is to help our partners become VoIP heroes to their customers,” said Christian Richter, CEO of beroNet. “The best way to do this is to provide flawless technology that is both easy to use, and flexible enough to support any business need. By launching our newest VoIP Gateway in a public beta, we are making a statement to our partners that any stable release from beroNet will be rock solid.”

One of the key benefits of the new gateway range is its ability to function as a SBC as well as a VoIP gateway. That means the offerings can create SIP connection between IP-PBXs and legacy PBX systems globally, with local failover to the PSTN. For a small office, that means the gateways provide a host of communications and conferencing functionality with very little setup and management expertise required.

Customers may purchase the gateways directly through beroNet during the public beta, while additional modules and accessories will be sold via distribution partners.
