on: February 17, 2010, 8:16 am
London, UK - February 17, 2010 - Spitfire, the leading
Internet Telephony Service Provider, has completed full
Interoperability testing with 3CX and agreed to promote 3CX to
Spitfire’s 200 strong partner channel. Spitfire has become a 3CX
Supported SIP Trunk provider, with Spitfire SIP Trunk configuration
built into the latest release of 3CX software, and support for Spitfire
SIP Trunks being available from 3CX’s global technical support center.
Spitfire presented 3CX to its partner channel in a joint seminar for Spitfire
Partners at the end of January 2010, to promote the benefits of the 3CX IP phone
system using Spitfire SIP trunks. In addition to this 3CX is holding two fully
subscribed training days exclusively for Spitfire Partners at their training center
The 3CX phone system is a Windows based IP PBX that replaces a proprietary hardware
PBX. 3CX’s IP phone system has been developed specifically for Microsoft Windows and
is based on the SIP standard.
Spitfire’s Partner Service provides a wide range of telecoms support for IT support
companies and VARs looking to move into voice. This includes overviews on an
introduction to telecoms, third level support and access to Spitfire’s Wholesale
Line Rental and SIP products.
Nick Goodenough, Spitfire’s Partner Service Manager says, “Our aim is to help IT
companies that wish to move into voice take the initial steps. IT resellers have
great relationships with their clients and are on site on a regular basis. They
should consider providing voice as delivering and supporting another application on
the LAN. Spitfire’s role is to provide our IT Partners with the service wrap and
products to give them the confidence to provide voice services with our support.
Spitfire offers over 20 years experience in the voice market and is now a leader in
SIP Trunks, VoIP and business Internet connectivity, so we offer the complete
package to support IT companies moving into voice”.
For 3CX Stephen Corrigan, EMEA Country Manager said, “We are extremely pleased to be
working with Spitfire to promote our leading Windows based phone system to their 200
partners in the IT channel. There is perfect synergy between the 3CX IP phone system
and Spitfire’s highly resilient SIP Trunk solution. We anticipate that Spitfire’s
Channel of IT support companies and data VARs that want to deliver voice solutions
to their customers, will find 3CX and Spitfire an irresistible combination.”
Spitfire’s SIP Trunking is designed as an ISDN30e and ISDN2e replacement and
typically offers business quality secure telephony at up to 50 percent less than the
installation and monthly rental cost of an equivalent ISDN service. As one of the
only ISPs and fixed line operators to offer a SIP Trunk service, Spitfire offers a
complete end-to-end SIP service via its own IP and TDM infrastructure. Spitfire can
provide a direct connection between the customers’ premises and Spitfire’s core

non-geographic number ranges, allowing them to provide one of the only fully
integrated SIP services available today, delivering a genuine ISDN30e replacement.
