3Com is looking to extend its reach in the IP telephony space and is planning to target customers that require multiple IP-based phone systems across different multi-site environments.

“3Com’s strategy is to cover small-to-large multi-site enterprises with systems that scale and pay back in one year in many cases,” says Dave Hattey, vice president & general manager of enterprise voice solutions 3Com.

‘We are committed to leveraging open IP-based voice systems to deliver end-to-end solutions for enterprise customers. This is a critical market for 3Com and we intend to be a vendor of choice,” he adds.

The networking vendor is planning to leverage, integrate and extend its existing local area network telephony solutions, including its carrier class softswitch, media gateways and NBX platform to drive its initiative into a greater number of enterprises

“We have worked with several Fortune 500 companies to help define and validate our integrated solutions and now have trials and deployments in progress in multiple locations,” explains Hattey.

The NBX networked telephony solution is designed for central or branch offices with two to over a 1000 phones in each location and offers third party applications integration, as well as extensive multi-site IP connectivity options.
