Kerio Technologies Incorporates VoIP T1 Technology in New Offering


This newest offering uses the industry-standard SIP VoIP protocol. Moreover, it’s compatible with any session initiation protocol (SIP) device and provider as well as it auto-configures with most popular phones.

Based on Asterisk (News - Alert) open source SIP communication software, Kerio Operator is compatible with any hardware and software-based IP phone. Company officials said that this product provides an option to pick and choose phone devices to fit customers' particular needs.

Additionally, Kerio Operator connects to the public phone network using either or both SIP trunks or T1/E1/EuroISDN lines. Company officials said that the company’s support for multiple PSTN connections allows for flexible deployments, and also simplified migrations from legacy phone systems.

Dusan Vitek, vice president of worldwide marketing at Kerio Technologies, said that Kerio Operator builds on simplicity, both for administrators and for end users. He also said that with this latest offering, configuring a voice response system takes just a few clicks, as does voice mail integration.

Thanks to the intuitive GUI, with advanced drag and drop capabilities for interface configuration, contextual help, and a configuration assistant, Kerio Operator's setup is simple and easy. Company officials said that the Web-based MyPhone user interface allows end-users to access their voicemail and phone settings even when they are not in the office.

Kerio Operator is available as a software appliance, featuring its own security-hardened operating system, and also a VMware virtual appliance allowing for rapid production or evaluation deployment on standard PC hardware.

San Jose, California based Kerio Technologies is a provider of Internet messaging and firewall software for SMBs and organizations worldwide. Last year in November, the company announced Kerio Control Box, an addition to its Kerio Control gateway security product line.
