NEC Aspire Phone Systems
Aspire allows you to converge your voice and data networks and enjoy the many advantages of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) while enjoying the hundreds of features you’ve come to expect from traditional digital/analog switching.
Aspire lets your organization benefit from the potential cost-saving advantages of IP, even if you are not ready to migrate to 100% IP Telephony immediately. That’s because Aspire gives you a choice: Deploying traditional circuit-switched technology, VoIP or a combination, all from one system! You can adopt VoIP when and where you need it.
What is Peer-to-Peer Switching?
“Peer-to-peer” switching means that the stations participating in a call are connected directly to each other through the IPnetwork. The signals travel through the IP network but do not “go through” the switch as they do in traditional telephony. The fact that Aspire can function in and support a “hybrid” network with traditional digital/analog switching, IP/TDM/IP switching and pure peer-to-peer IP switching means that users can continue to utilize their existing equipment while they begin to phase in IP Telephony and lay the foundation for current and future networks.
Reduced Costs of Peer-to-Peer IP Connectivity
- Maintain one network rather than two
- Bypass the long distance carrierby sending voice calls overthe data network
- Single cable termination to the desktop
- Reduced brick and mortar expenses by deploying main office features to remote personnel
