Sangoma Connect Mobile

We know that right now, communication is key. We also know that you need to be able to work where it makes the most sense for you, so mobility is a must. The latest milestone in our mission to help you communicate more effectively is the next-generation mobile softphone app for FreePBX and PBXact. It’s called Sangoma Connect Mobile, and it is now available to download!

Sangoma Connect Mobile combines the best of our existing solutions with new core mobile technologies to provide a greater communication experience for calling and collaborating with coworkers.

Sangoma Connect Mobile provides rich voice and video calling for PBXact and FreePBX, on iOS and Android devices. We’ve made the onboarding experience very simple for system administrators to provision, and for users to install:

  • Administrators: enable Connect users via the User Manager within the PBXact or FreePBX admin interface. That automatically sends an invitation email message to each user.
  • Users: open their invitation email and follow simple instructions to download the app from the app store, then click a ‘magic log-in link’ in the email to immediately configure – no need for details like hostnames, extension numbers, or passwords.

And that’s it! It just works. Issues like certificate management, which can be a manual process with other apps, are handled automatically.

Features Included:

  • Blind and assisted transfer
  • 3-way calling
  • Contacts and favorites – including BLF
  • BLF Lamp status of features that support it such as Day/Night and CallFlow
  • DND with scheduling for out-of-office convenience

Another great feature is that we’ve integrated Sangoma Meet, our award-winning video conferencing platform within Sangoma Connect Mobile, making it super simple to create or join a multi-party video conference.

How to Get It

Sangoma Connect Mobile is included, free-of-charge, for all new and existing PBXact systems.  It is also free-of-charge to FreePBX customers with an active Zulu license, for the same amount of users already purchased. Simply perform an update on your system, and Sangoma Connect will be available within the User Management Module.

Purchasing Options

FreePBX customers, without Zulu, wishing to purchase a Sangoma Connect Mobile license can do so from the Sangoma Portal Store.  We have integrated Sangoma Connect Mobile with Zulu Desktop so that customers  can take advantage of even further collaboration tools for your MacOS or Windows computer. Simply purchase the Zulu license from the portal store and choose to use Sangoma Connect Mobile, or both! If needed, here are some helpful instructions on how to purchase a license and how to install on your FreePBX system.

Download the Mobile Client

End users can download the iOS or Android app, for free, by searching for ‘Sangoma Connect’ in the respective app stores. A direct download link is also available within the invitation email end-users receive. Here is information on how to use the app.

ISDN Switchoff…

With the end of ISDN looming, the switch off could affect over two million businesses in the UK which will come at a cost for those affected. For many, the cost implications to replace their entire Telphone system would simply be too much, but with Sangoma’s offering, the transition from PSTN and ISDN to VoIP can provide a long-term, cost-effective solution.

Why remove a PBX that gives you everything you need? Sangoma’s Vega Gateways provide seamless connectivity to SIP providers, with no need to change any existing hardware or to re-cable your system, these gateways are designed to migrate from PSTN to SIP with minimal downtime.

Available in a range of varieties, Sangoma Vega Gateways suit businesses of all sizes from the SME to enterprise corporations. What’s more, users can benefit from advanced functionalities such as least cost routing (selecting the cheapest route for a call) and enhanced network proxy features which can help with the failover of calls from VoIP to PSTN in the event of a loss of internet connection.

If you would like more information or advice on what is the best option for your business please call or email us. Unlike many we have ISDN simulators so that we can configure your new gateway and install it with limited disruption to your business

The Gigaset N670 IP PRO grows with the company

LAUNCH OFFER ! SINGLE BASE INC VAT AND DELIVERY FOR £130

Professional IP DECT base station that can become a multi-cell system

N670

The new Gigaset N670 IP PRO offers business customers performance and maximum flexibility to deal with future growth. It supports 20 users, SIP accounts and handsets, can handle eight simultaneous calls, thus enabling a broad range of uses for DECT telephony in the business arena. The base station is compatible with numerous on-premise and cloud-based telephone systems and supports all handsets from Gigaset’s Professional series. If a company’s requirements increase, for example, because it needs more extensions or its floor space expands, the N670 IP PRO can be upgraded in the future with a license to a multi-cell system1).

Modern DECT communication solutions deliver complete freedom of movement in challenging work environments, need minimum cabling, and are easy to install and maintain. As Europe’s DECT pioneer, Gigaset not only makes cordless phones for millions of households worldwide, but also professional telephone systems at its Bocholt site in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The N670 IP PRO DECT base station delivers greater performance and simplifies administration. The device merely needs an Ethernet port for connectivity and supplying power, and the handsets require just one socket for the charging station – everything else works without cables.

“The N670 IP PRO embodies all the expertise we’ve amassed with professional IP DECT systems over the past years,” says Norbert Cremer, Head of Product Management Business Solutions at Gigaset. “We wanted to create an even better, more flexible and more powerful IP DECT base station, one offering the customary ease of installation, great convenience and comprehensive security. Yet the real highlight for our customers is that they can expand it into a multi-cell system with a license upgrade1).” Gigaset is positioning the N670 IP PRO between the N510 IP PRO and the N870 IP PRO multi-cell system.

From the single-cell to the multi-cell system

The N670 IP PRO is an investment in the future: If the floor space or number of users at an organization increases, the N670 IP can be expanded into a multi-cell system with an upgrade license1). Additional base stations cover multiple stories or buildings and ensure users can be reached everywhere. That makes the N670 IP PRO interesting for growing and aspiring companies in particular.

Current datasheet is here and with an RRP or £119.99+Vat this is a great alternative to the N510, Contact us for special launch pricing and Bundle packages.
