TMC selects Blue Steel, a robust IP PBX from Xorcom, as a top innovation on the ITEXPO Miami show floor

Xorcom announced today that its Blue Steel IP-PBX was selected as a winner of the Best of Show Award at ITEXPO, held January 28-31 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Winners of the prestigious Best of Show Award program are reserved for products or services that demonstrate raw creativity and technological innovation.

Xorcom’s new hybrid (VoIP + PSTN) telephony IP-PBX line for business is called Blue Steel for its built-in redundancy. This product line is a stand-alone, pre-configured, out-of-the-box IP-PBX featuring Xorcom’s CompletePBX™ software. It is designed for businesses that demand maximum uptime from their telephony system. Blue Steel features hot-swappable server-grade hard disk drives, hot-swappable power supplies, and built-in power for up to four Astribanks for PSTN and analog phone connectivity. It supports various combinations of telephony ports both internally and via Astribank units connected via USB2: up to 960 PSTN/analog phones ports, up to 16 E1 R2 / T1 CAS PRI ports, up to 1,000 users, and up to 550 concurrent SIP calls.

“Blue Steel combines a powerful new hardware platform featuring built-in redundancy and the recently released CompletePBX version 4.0 software to bring excellent value to the market,” states Eran Gal, CEO at Xorcom. “This new IP-PBX product line provides solutions to many issues, such as unstable environments, increasing demand for bullet-proof reliability, monitoring and alert tools for the IT manager, and much more. Until now, due to their price point, such capabilities in our product offering were reserved for very high end customers; now with Blue Steel they are available for the SMB market as well.”

“The products and solutions nominated for the ITEXPO Best in Show Awards continue to demonstrate raw innovation, and it’s truly exciting to see what new technological developments our exhibitors have for us each year,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman. “We are pleased to honor Xorcom for their efforts and creativity in developing advanced, powerful solutions for the business technology marketplace.”
