This is a press release. Multi-Tech has been around for a long time
but their equipment has always been a bit pricey (though not horribly
so). For some multi-location businesses that are not quite ready to
replace their old phone equipment, but still want the cost savings of
VoIP, there may be an interim solution here.
Multi-Tech Offers No Risk VoIP Solutions
MINNEAPOLIS, MN USA 05/05/2004
Add VoIP Gateways to Existing Phone Equipment and Routers
MINNEAPOLIS, May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtually any multi-location
business that wants to reduce toll charges between frequently called
or faxed locations can do it without replacing existing equipment.
All you have to do is add a VoIP gateway to each location connected to
existing phone equipment and routers. Now Multi-Tech(R) Systems,
Inc., a leading data communications and telecommunications technology
company based in suburban Minneapolis, can make that a "no risk"
proposition by letting qualified users try out a pair of MultiVOIP(TM)
voice over IP gateways free of charge (U.S. only) for a 60 day
evaluation period. There is no need to buy expensive new phone or
router equipment, because MultiVOIP VoIP gateways will operate with
most existing equipment.

"We have been providing add-on voice over IP solutions for over seven
years and were one of the very first companies to offer it," states
Chip Harleman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Multi-Tech
Systems, Inc. "It has always seemed very natural to us that users who
are satisfied with their phone systems and data networks should add an
application like VoIP to that existing equipment rather than taking
the more expensive route of replacing it. The return on investment
can be very short even with a company using the most inexpensive long
distance calling plans.
For instance, a company with a central site in California and remote
sites in Chicago and the UK can pay for a MultiVOIP gateway in each
location in less than six months with typical business phone usage.
With ROIs like that it is easy to see why investing in VoIP technology
is a smart business decision." The MultiVOIP voice over IP gateways
provide toll-free voice and fax communications over the Internet or
Intranet. By integrating voice and fax into an existing data network,
businesses can realize substantial savings on inter-office long
distance toll charges.
The MultiVOIP family is available in analog and digital models ranging
from one to 60 ports. MultiVOIP products connect directly to phones,
fax machines, key systems, PSTN lines or a PBX to provide real-time,
toll-quality voice connections to any office on a VOIP network. The
MultiVOIP gateway is designed to help maximize investments already
made in the existing data and voice network infrastructure.
