New solution from MCK bridges between legacy PBX systems and next-generation
networks and applications

Dacon has introduced the MCK EXTender PBXgatewayII, a new telephony bridging
solution that allows existing corporate telephone system functions to be
extended from the PBX over a variety of network types.

The PBXgateway II is a remote voice platform that will support virtually
every emerging technology, including standards-based IP protocols. It is
intended to serve as the remote voice platform of choice for branch offices,
telecommuters and remote workers.

A single PBXgateway II can support all of MCK's EXTender family of remote
access and networking products, including the EXTender 6000, 4000, 3000 and
the new MCK Mobile EXTender.

Mobile EXTender is a key new application developed for the PBXgateway II. It
enables mobile / cellular phone users to access PBX features including
conference, transfer and hold. Long-distance or international calls can be
put through the company's voice network via mobile phone, saving on costs.
Access is password protected for security.

Using PBXgateway II, existing PBX phones can be extended from the PBX over a
variety of networks. This avoids the need to replace current sets with new
IP based sets in order to take advantage of new packet-based networks.
PBXgateway II also allows a customer's existing PBX to be used in a packet
environment without further hardware upgrades.

PBXgateway II does not require software upgrades to the PBX to support new
transmission methods or new features. A company network can add voice
applications to their remote communications network without further
investment in the actual PBX. The product also ensures that voice traffic
is prioritised on IP networks.

Dacon managing director Roy Strutt said: "This new platform complements and
broadens the MCK EXTender range, and will help companies to address the
communications needs of expanding numbers of remote workers, and will enable
them to maintain investments in existing voice systems while taking
advantage of next-generation services and applications."
