Bringing a competitive Unified Communications (UC) system with voice, video, data and mobility applications to the enterprise market, Grandstream Networks today announced the availability of the UCM6510 IP PBX Appliance. Capable of handling up to 2000 users, 200 simultaneous calls and made specifically for E1, T1 and J1 networks running the PRI/MFC-R2/SS7 protocols, the UCM6510 IP PBX benefits large call volume customers such as enterprises, campuses, call centers, SMBs, and hospitality environments with an innovative, reliable, and high performance unified communications platform.
The UCM6510, powered on the popular open source Asterisk-based software platform, is the second member of Grandstream’s UCM series of IP PBX appliances. In 2013, Grandstream introduced the UCM6100 series of IP PBX Appliances for SMBs supporting up to 500 users and 60 concurrent calls. The new UCM6510 offers the same communications features, capabilities, and smart endpoint management as the highly successful UCM6100 series, with the enhancement for E1/T1/J1 networks and much beefed up performance to support enterprise-level high calling volume (up to 2000 users, 200 simultaneous call, and 8 conference bridges with up to 64 attendees). It also features a number of improved reliability designs such as redundant power supplies, redundant Gigabit network ports with support for hot-standby high availability operation (pending software upgrade), 2 FXS and 2 FXO ports, integrated PoE, USB, SD, unlimited SIP trunk accounts with flexible call routing control, large 32GB onboard Flash memory for voicemail, electronic fax, call recording, personalized music-on-hold, and virtually unlimited peering for multi-site deployment or backup.
“We are very excited to introduce the UCM6510 IP PBX to the medium enterprise market today”, said David Li, CEO of Grandstream Networks. “This new product is a natural extension of our popular UCM series of Unified Communication platform that embodies Grandstream’s strong commitment to serving a broader market with a comprehensive and highly competitive total solution portfolio including IP PBX systems, a wide range of VoIP endpoints and gateways, as well as security surveillance cameras and video storage systems”.
