O’Brien Automotive Team
Integration features enterprise Asterisk convergence between wireless and VoIP solutions across five building 40-acre site
TINLEY PARK, IL and ORLANDO, FL — (March 5, 2007) — NeoPhonetics (formerly SIPBox), a telephony provider that designs, implements and supports custom VoIP systems for enterprises, today announced O’Brien Automotive Team as its latest customer.
Based in Peoria, IL, O’Brien Automotive Team sells new and used vehicles for a variety of manufacturers across four states and nine cities in the U.S. The company hired NeoPhonetics to design and implement an Asterisk-based VoIP system for its new headquarters location. In less than one month, the NeoPhonetics solution was up-and-running with 150 IP handsets and 100 WiFi handsets, linking five buildings together on one 40-acre campus.
“NeoPhonetics was the only Asterisk integrator we found that provided on-site engineers through the entire design and implementation process,” said Dave Stear, IT director for O’Brien Automotive Team. “NeoPhonetics came to the rescue when we were at a critical point in our move. Their expertise customizing open source VoIP applications, combined with their high-level of reliability and customer service, made the choice an easy one for us.”
The NeoPhonetics solution for O’Brien Automotive Team features two redundant Asterisk Business Edition servers, Digium’s professional grade version of Asterisk, 150 Polycom phones and 100 Hitachi WiFi handsets. Tied into the campus’ fiber and copper network, the system offers internal and external calling features including voicemail, call forwarding, conferencing, call transfers and forwards, as well as unified messaging (voicemail, fax, email) and wireless capabilities.
“The O’Brien Automotive Team implementation is a great example of Asterisk in an enterprise environment,” said Chad Agate, co-founder and CEO of NeoPhonetics. “The flexibility of the Asterisk solution allows the employees to easily communicate from various buildings across the campus, without the need for paging. Importantly, the solution is designed for simple expansion possibilities for thousands of users.”
NeoPhonetics is currently exhibiting in Booth #335 at the VoiceCon show in Orlando, FL from March 5-8th.
NeoPhonetics designs, implements and supports custom VoIP telephony systems for enterprises with at least fifty employees. With a specialty in open source Asterisk installations, NeoPhonetics creates solutions that offer more features, flexibility and cost effectiveness than traditional telephony systems. The company differentiates itself from other providers by offering on-site network design and integration as well as 24/7 support. In 2006, NeoPhonetics received the “Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award” by Frost & Sullivan for its role as an emerging company with vast potential in the enterprise telephony equipment services market.
