Jenne Distributors To Carry VoSKY Exchange PBX-To-Skype Gateway

VoSKY Technologies recently announced a key distribution agreement for its family of VoSKY Exchange PBX-to-Skype gateways with Jenne Distributors, one of the leading North American distributor of business telephone, computer telephony, A/V, Data and Convergence products. The Skype-certified VoIP gateways enable businesses to dramatically lower communications costs by deploying VoIP trunking for low-cost long distance and international calls, multi-site PBX networking for free interoffice calling, and Web Click-to-Call to reduce 800 service calls. VoSKY Exchange can seamlessly integrate with any TDM or IP PBX phone systems through analog trunk or station ports.

Under the agreement, Jenne will offer all five current VoSKY Exchange models through its large base of value-added resellers. Many of the VARs purchasing products from Jenne are dedicated to telecom products and focused on small to mid-sized businesses, the primary candidates for the VoSKY VoIP gateways. The Exchange family will complement and extend Jenne's product portfolio, which ranges from traditional TDM and IP PBX systems to a full range of products from more than 150 manufacturers .

"Jenne has a massive base of telecom VARs in the U.S., an active training program for installation and maintenance of TDM and VoIP phone systems, and a strong sales team that is experienced in selling business VoIP solutions," said David Tang, VoSKY's Director of Business Development, VoIP. "Their decision to distribute our VoSKY Exchange gateways demonstrates the strength of the line and positions us to rapidly accelerate the product's market penetration."

"The VoSKY Exchange is a solution for cutting domestic and international long-distance phone bills, thus achieving a rapid ROI.," said Rose Jenne, CEO of Jenne Distributors. "That makes VoSKY Exchange a strong addition to our product line. The VoSKY Exchange enables a cost-effective long-distance solution for all resellers of PBXs and VoIP-enabled phone systems.

VoSKY Exchange is a family of rackmountable VoIP gateways that add inbound and outbound Skype lines to the office PBX without changes to existing PBX or phone equipment, while also centralizing Skype provisioning and management. A single Exchange device Skype-enables every phone extension in the office so that users can make and receive Skype calls without a PC and headset. Multiple Exchange boxes can be set up in company offices in different cities to enable free calls between sites and to accept calls from remote employees at no charge. Calls to other Skype users are free, while calls to non-Skype users are charged at SkypeOut rates as low as 2 cents per minute — even overseas.

The newest version also offers Skype/VoIP connectivity for remote business users by enabling access to office Skype lines from any landline or mobile phone through a special access code, plus global numbering that simplifies dialing between Exchange-equipped company offices. The product has a low one-time cost, can be installed in as little as two hours, and works with any traditional time division multiplexed or IP PBX. More information is available at
