Enables a seamless, integrated
distributed enterprise
The PBXgateway II is a highly scalable distributed
telephony gateway designed to meet the specific
needs of medium size branch offices. The flagship of Verso’s EXTenderTM family of distributed
telephony devices, the PBXgateway II enables you
to seamlessly integrate your entire enterprise
including branch offices and teleworkers, providing customers and employees the ease and convenience of having every employee on a common
voice network, regardless of their geographic location. With just one number to reach any employee,
customers will appreciate the ease with which
they can communicate with your organization.
Employees in remote locations can maximize
their productivity with seamless access to the
corporate voice network from any location.
Designed to provide business telephony to distributed organizations with branch offices, call
centers, home-based call center agents and
teleworkers, the PBXgateway II is Verso’s most
robust platform, delivering all of the features
and functionality of the PBXgateway I and more.
Reduces communication costs
The flexible, versatile PBXgateway II offers a variety of network topologies and variable compression rates to maximize your network resources,
improve network efficiency and reduce communications costs.
Telecommunications costs fall by an average
of 30% when users are administered from a
single location versus multiple platforms.
Communications savings are also realized
from the consolidation of long distance calling
through the corporate voice network and
dialing plan. Additional savings are realized
because separate PBX/KTS systems in each
branch office are no longer required.
Ensures superior voice quality
The PBXgateway II uses Verso’s Remote Voice
Protocol over IP (RVPoIP) to convert digital voice
and phone signaling into highly efficient IP data
packets, which can then be transmitted over any
TCP/IP network. The PBXgateway II facilitates
Quality of Service using Diffserv and IP Precedence
packet tagging to enable routers to be configured
to prioritize voice traffic. Additionally, the
PBXgateway II features sophisticated echo
cancellation and noise detection algorithms
that help to ensure superior voice quality.
Ensures maximum administrative
As your business grows, the PBXgateway II
ensures ongoing scalability, enabling you to mix
and match remote modules up to a total of 24
users per unit or to stack units for larger
deployments. Additionally, the PBXgateway II
provides maximum flexibility for the distributed
enterprise, with the capability of terminating all of
MCK’s EXTender clients including:
• EXTender 1000 for single-user, analog networks1
• EXTender 3000 for single-user, ISDN networks2
• EXTender 4000 for single-user, IP networks
• EXTender 6000 for multi-user networks
• EXTender 7000 for multi-user networks3
• RemoteConneX phone for single-user
analog networks
• Cell phones for mobile workers
This highly scalable and flexible gateway can be
configured to operate either in a point-to-point
synchronous WAN environment over traditional
networks or in a managed IP network. In a
traditional WAN environment, multiple EXTender
6000s and 7000s can be connected into a single
PBXgateway II. In a managed IP network environment, up to two EXTender 6000s and 7000s
and multiple EXTender 4000s can be connected
into a single PBXgateway II to a maximum port
capacity of 24 per unit.
Reduces IT staff time
MCK’s distributed telephony solutions have been
designed for operational simplicity. All of the
system’s configurations, management, administrative and diagnostic functions are managed
from the PBXgateway II using a direct serial connection, dial-up modem, HTML, Telnet or an
inband network connection from a remote client.
This flexibility allows companies to maximize
valuable IT resources and lowers operating costs.
The PBXgateway II is equipped with dual DB-9
console ports (see diagram). These ports allow a
system administrator to attach a modem to one
and use the other for a local terminal connection.
This versatility makes remote troubleshooting and
maintenance a breeze.
Maximizes remote employee
The MCK PBXgateway II helps employees in
remote locations feel more connected to the
corporate office and enables them to work
more efficiently and effectively by delivering
the same telephony experience as colleagues
in the corporate office – including identical
full-featured phonesets to access corporate
PBX functions and applications, like voicemail,
call accounting systems, unified messaging
and ACD systems.
Leverages your legacy PBX/KTS
investments towards convergence
The typical PBX is underutilized by as much
as 50%*. Many organizations report that the
capacity of their PBX is 2 to 5 times the number
of users currently supported on it.

This means a valuable corporate asset is being significantly under
utilized. MCK is committed to helping you leverage this investment and to provide you a managed migration path to
convergence. Whenever you’re ready, you can use your
PBXgateway II to converge your voice and data traffic onto a
single network, without the need for additional
equipment or expensive and disruptive upgrades.

*MCK's IP-based products utilize Voice over IP (VoIP) technology to deliver remote voice solutions. The voice quality of these solutions is dependent on variables such as available bandwidth, network
latency and quality of service (QoS) initiatives, all of which are controlled by the network and Internet service providers. Because these variables are not in MCK's control, it cannot guarantee the
performance of the user's IP-based remote voice solution.
