Newbury Park, CA (PRWEB) July 8, 2006
With the new digital GSM gateway Ecotel ISDN2-2x, companies can significantly reduce their telephone costs. When connected to the private branch exchange (PBX), the gateway re-places expensive connections between the fixed network and mobile phones with economical mobile-to-mobile connections. At the same time, as an alternative to the DECT method (Digital Enhanced Cordless Tele-communications), the Ecotel ISDN2-2x makes it possible to use the PBX features switching between calls and announced call transfer from the mobile phones of the employees. In addition, the gateway makes it possible for mobile offices to connect via mobile phone networks. The Ecotel ISDN2-2x is based on the proven Ecotel ISDN2-1x. The new system differs from the earlier one in that it has more GSM channels, intelligent local SIM card management (SIM switching), and SIM card server integration.
*Lowering the phone bill
The most important feature of the Ecotel ISDN2-2x is the savings in tele-phone costs that it enables. When an employee calls a mobile phone num-ber, the connection is created via the gateway. In order to do this, the gateway has mobile telephone modules and SIM cards, and its own an-tenna. Depending on the network selected, the time of day, day of the week, and similar factors, the gateway automatically uses the SIM card that has the most economical mobile-to-mobile rate. Similar savings are realized for incoming calls. The Ecotel ISDN2-2x can be operated either at an inter-nal extension of the PBX or at its exchange (NT). It can be switched into the trunk line as a least cost router. That is, it is simultaneously connected to the PBX and to the ISDN trunk connection.
In addition, the Ecotel ISDN2-2x makes extension functions of the PBX available on the company mobile phones. If the employee mobile phones are connected to the telecommunication system via economical mobile-to-mobile connections, the functions of switching between calls and an-nounced call transfer can be used from the mobile phone. These functions are available independent of the manufacturer of the PBX and of the mobile provider used. With the mobile integration functions of the
Ecotel ISDN2-2x, employees are easier to reach and have greater mobility, explains Anton Gl
