Tadiran Telecom is bringing Aeonix out of beta, a unified communications (UC) and collaboration solution for consolidating business voice and messaging applications. The offering, available to its channel partners worldwide, is the company’s next generation UC offering, meant to become its flagship UC application.
Tadiran is encouraging its 100,000 users of its legacy Coral System to migrate to Aeonix, sweetening the pot by offering a 70% initial discount on user licenses.
Aeonix is a Linux-based solution that supports open protocols such as SIP, CSTA and Web services, allowing integration with a variety of common applications and the ability to add user specific devices to the system (as in bring your own device scenarios, or BYOD). An Aeonix system can consist of one or many distributed servers, with each server providing 100 percent application functionality. Meanwhile, its open architecture offers an intuitive management interface, and automated network diagnostics and recovery mechanisms for fault tolerance.
“While current Unified Communication solutions are generally based on legacy platforms and “patches” of acquired technologies, Aeonix presents a unique approach to lower total cost of ownership,” said Eldad Barak, president and CEO of Tadiran Telecom. “Aeonix’s private cloud deployment empowers distributed environments with all the flexibility and scalability of pure software architecture and open standards.”
In its beta phase, Aeonix has been installed in various sites, including the Medford School District in Oregon. Aeonix was installed in a distributed environment serving 1,100 users, in 20 district schools as a unified cluster solution.
“Medford School was looking to upgrade to a Unified communications solution that was technologically advanced, scalable and easy to manage,” said Jeffrey Bales, manager of network services at Medford School District. “Implementation of the Aeonix took half of the time that we had allocated. Upgrading to Aeonix is a huge jump forward in technology and stability.”
