Data and Voice Networking Converge

Alcatel’s OmniPCX 4400 IP-based enterprise system offers a suite of features that work together to reduce the cost of ownership of enterprise communication networks. Features include scalability from 50 to 50,000 users, innovative telephone headsets, high reliability, one-number mobility, unified messaging, voice-over IP networking with quality service management, a Web-based customer contact center and integrated voice and data network management.


Entirely based on a client/server UNIX architecture, the OmniPX 4400 demonstrates a commitment to open systems. The strength of this open architecture is its ability to integrate easily with networking infrastructure and application technologies from any supplier committed to open standards. The system combines all the features and functions of a good PBX system in an era of IP-based telephony, without foregoing the traditional fundamentals of reliable call processing and switching functions.
