Waveform Technology will freeze colocation prices during 2009 to help Michigan companies in the struggling economic climate

Troy based data center operator Waveform Technology today announced a price freeze for all colocation customers in its Michigan Data Center. This price freeze is intended to help IT companies in Michigan, and all over the country, who are struggling in the current economic climate.

Waveform Technology will commit to maintaining its 2008 colocation prices through 2009. Current Waveform customers will not see their rates go up, and new customers will have access to the current 2008 prices.

Steady prices will give information technology companies a better ability to plan projects. Waveform Technology also hopes to help boost the Michigan technology economy by providing reliable and affordable colocation to area business.

“It’s much easier for companies to budget technology resources if they’re aware of the cost beforehand,” said Waveform Representative Noel Montales. “We never want to surprise our customers by changing our rates, and we want to insure them that we won’t. Waveform is committed to providing affordable colocation to Michigan businesses of all sizes, and we won’t let a recession change that.”

Waveform Technology has never raised its price for 1u, customer owned colocation. Waveform had not intended to raise prices in 2009, and has made the price freeze public in order to reassure both current and potential customers.

“We view our price freeze as an investment for the future,” continued Mr. Montales, “anything we can do to help the companies who need our services is worthwhile.”

3CX, developer of telecommunications software, rolls out of version 7.0 of 3CX Phone System for Windows

3CX (www.3cx.com) the international developer of telecommunications software has announced the roll out of version 7.0 of 3CX Phone System for Windows. The new version comes with a revamped design aimed at making its already user-friendly Management Console and User Interface even easier to work with; whilst effectively delivering more mobility to users by empowering them to configure their own extensions with advanced call handling rules based on caller ID and time of call.

Nick Galea, CEO at 3CX said that these improvements are building on the company’s strategy to deliver a software-based IP PBX that is easy to manage and use. “One of the things we discovered from listening to our customers is that VoIP phone system users want more flexibility in managing their incoming calls. By allowing call rules to be configured based on caller ID, time received and type of call, users can break free from the office and have more mobility. For example, after-hour calls from important customers can be routed to a mobile phone, whereas all other calls can go to voice mail” Galea said; adding that with the new call handling rules also come many added functionalities such as a new management console and a new configuration wizard.

Furthermore, 3CX version 7.0 is an example of better Windows integration in an IP PBX environment. “By replacing the use of technologies such as Apache and PHP with IIS and .NET, adding support for PBX virtualization in Hyper V, resolving inbound calls to MS Outlook contacts, and incorporating Windows management tools for better monitoring, we are taking a step forward towards further integration of 3CX Phone System with Microsoft Windows”, added Nick Galea.

3CX Phone System for Windows allows businesses to completely break free from the restrictions of expensive hardware-based, proprietary phone systems. It also ships with many other enterprise-level features that help businesses enjoy substantial productivity and efficiency gains.

Key new features of 3CX Phone System for Windows version 7.0

  • Revamped Web Management Console and User Interface
  • Added support for running as a virtual instance in Hyper V
  • New configuration wizard
  • Advanced call forwarding and call queue rules
  • Resolve inbound calls to MS Outlook contacts
  • Support for Sangoma cards
  • Integration of Microsoft Web server, .NET and Windows management tools
