OnRelay Unveils Hosted MBX

VoiceCon 2008, Orlando, Florida, USA - OnRelay today announced the general availability of its Hosted MBX product suite.

Hosted MBX is a network independent software system, that enables operators to offer a complete hosted office communication system with mobile phones instead of desk phones. It thereby enables business customers to utilise public mobile networks in place of expensive Voice over IP LAN infrastructure.

This allows organisations to significantly reduce infrastructure investments and to free their staff to use a mobile phone as their universal fully functional business device. Further cost savings are also made through reductions in trunk lines, maintenance, upgrades and energy costs.

Ivar Plahte, OnRelay CEO, says, “OnRelay is frequently lauded for spearheading the next era of mobile PBXs. This is it. Our Hosted MBX product is the first release of an architecture we believe to be the future of office communications systems. Hosted MBX provides the best of all worlds with the full flexibility and functionality of a real PBX system, unrestricted global mobility, and not the least complete outsourcing of hardware resources. Businesses can literally deploy a fully functional and managed PBX system without adding any equipment at all to their LAN infrastructure.”

Hosted MBX uses public wireless networks (3G, GSM, CDMA, EVDO) in place of expensive private corporate voice infrastructure. It allows for the use of existing number plans, needing little network integration and incorporates all the functionality and management features of a fixed phone system – even when a user is roaming internationally.

OnRelay’s US office will be opened on 1st May in Washington, D.C.
