The installation of the VOIP
switchboards in the municipality of Casalecchio di Reno
was a real novelty: it was, in fact, the first VOIP switchboard based on Digium technologies
in Europe. An innovative project of high technological level, which saw 3CiME Technology and the municipality of Casalecchio di Reno as protagonists; this allowed the information systems to bring the voice into the ordinary management of the institution's infrastructure.
The software of the new VOIP switchboard
, which serves 350 users spread over multiple sites, saw the installation on a pair of Citrix XenServe
r servers in high reliability. The design of the VOIP switchboard
included a comprehensive supply; consequently, not only software and telephones, but also all the components necessary for correct operation, such as the PRI and FAX gateways
for the main office, and the GSM gateways
for the secondary offices.
Furthermore, the Municipality of Casalecchio di Reno did not have voice mail, videoconferencing, call management and integration with configuration of its own computer. Digium
won the job mainly because Switchvox
is an excellent VOIP phone system
, one of the best when it comes to integrating with web applications that help companies achieve success.
Result? No more endless waiting to move or replace phones. With the mapping provided when installing the new Digium system
, adding a new phone device takes minutes instead of days.
The private telephone lines previously used in all five Casalecchio remote stations, including schools, have been replaced with wireless LAN (High Performance Radio)
, eliminating the need for excess wiring thanks to the installation of the VOIP switchboard
. Today, everyone has one or more IP phones connected with their new PBX (Private Branch Exchange), and remote locations can make calls using a connection to the Casalecchio phone provider, allowing significant cost savings (around 12,000) euro per year) and a significant improvement in the efficiency of the service.
