As we celebrate Labor Day, it seemed appropriate to document why XiVO separates the men from the boys so your phones don’t end up as boat anchors buried in the sand. Today our focus is “High Availability (HA)” and “Multi-Tenant (MT)“, two very expensive options for many PBXs including some that loosely tout their platforms as free.

These three devices offer three dramatically different, but equally effective, approaches to the future of VoIP telephony. The Mocet Communicator is… Read More ›
