Digium Replacement for 3Com NBX and VCX

By Jim Butler

Since HP’s acquisition of 3Com, HP made the decision to discontinue the popular NBX and VCX IP PBX platforms. While some customers will elect to keep their systems until they are no longer supported, many customers are already making plans to migrate to new platforms. It was recently announced that support contracts on the NBX system will no longer be offered, effective July 1, 2011. This means that NBX customers will be looking for replacement systems NOW.

Digium’s Switchvox UC platform is a perfect replacement for the 3Com NBX and many VCX installations. Switchvox offers solution providers with a compelling replacement strategy with VoIP & traditional calling, mobility, instant messaging, conferencing, recording, call center, and much more. Switchvox provides dozens of popular VoIP capabilities in a single package with no hidden charges or a la carte pricing.

Many 3Com resellers have already made the switch to Digium. Here are what a couple of them had to say.

“Digium software and hardware products are powerful, reliable and affordable and my employees and customers have been able to learn the installation and administration of Switchvox, quickly. We have also found that the back-office process of quoting, demonstrating, and ordering Switchvox is simple and efficient. We were able to learn, sell and deploy Switchvox in an astonishingly short amount of time.” – Clayton Schaefer, Cabling Services Corporation

“Digium provides us with a platform designed to be simple to quote and sell. Once you size the platform and add the right level subscriptions, you don’t need to worry about ACD agents, auto-attendant ports, recording licenses, mobile phone licenses, etc., because the unit comes with all of it, already. This makes for a great conversation with the client – which is as simple as, ‘What do you need? Ok, that’s included’ This eliminates the whole discussion about additional licenses and add-on programs.” – Mark Essayian, KME Systems

Digium is helping solution providers profitably replace existing 3Com NBX or VCX phone systems with a Digium Switchvox UC solution. To take advantage of our powerful Jump Start program, or to get details on our award-winning partner program, visit us at www.digium.com/ucpartner.

    The above comment, although is what Digium is trying to focus on, it is not accurate. Digium is clearly stating what a good match SwitchVox is to replace those no longer supported NBX and VCX IP PBXs.
    On the other hand, the above post states that HP is dropping them and replacing them with SwitchVox… My guess is some wishfull thinking was added to the mix while translating…

    BTW… I couldn´t agree more with Digiums strategy… SwitchVox is a great alternative for those PBXs.
