Marlborough, Mass.-based 3Com (had to cover my butt on that title right quick) is shipping a new edition of its 3Com NBX V3000 IP platform. Part of the 3Com Convergence Applications Suite, this newest version comes with a self contained IP PBX. The IP PBX offers support for embedded applications such as automated attendant with e-mail integration and desktop call management.
It also comes with ports for your fax machines and analog phones.
3Com is positioning this offering as scalable, and because of the embedded enterprise administration options, less expensive than competing products.
How important are these embedded features to you? Let's get some posts on this one.
But err... fax machines? I'veseen those demonstrated in museums. Just kidding :-)
