Barracuda Rebrands VoIP System, Announces AT&T Certification

Barracuda Networks has rebranded the CudaTel VoIP phone and system family to “Barracuda Phone System,” and has announced new certifications.

The company announced that Barracuda Phone System now is AT&T Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Certified and can be configured to work with AT&T IP Flexible Reach. Flexible Reach service is a converged solution providing customers with both data and SIP trunking needs over a single connection.

“We are pleased to have achieved this important certification with AT&T and are excited that we’ve started to expand the Barracuda Phone System platform to international locations,” said Ken Grohe, GM of emerging products at Barracuda. “Barracuda Phone System does away with per-user, per-feature licensing, giving customers access to all features available on every phone system model that Barracuda offers. Barracuda Phone System includes features associated with enterprise-class systems, and is managed through an intuitive interface that makes telephony management easier for the administrator.”

Barracuda Phone System is also now certified to work with Patton analog and PRI SmartNode Gateways, and Barracuda is now part of the Polycom Technology Partner program.

Barracuda also released several new features for the Barracuda Phone System, including the new Communication Command Center, which is designed to boost user productivity. The Communication Command Center allows users to select the preferred way to initiate, receive, and respond to business communications directly from their computers with an easy-to-use drag-and-drop feature.

“It’s encouraging to see a product like Barracuda Phone System come to market in this industry with the same emphasis placed on innovation, service, and support that we insist upon for our own customers in the UK,” said Peter Gradwell, CTO at channel partner Gradwell Communications. “We appreciate that Barracuda includes all of the features regardless of the model, and makes it a breeze for companies to transition from outdated technology.”
