Small businesses can have it all! They can have the most costeffective voice and data access without the need for expensive
or complicated equipment, giving them the choices they need to
best meet their business requirements. The Allworx 24x system is
designed with multiple built-in connections:
Traditional phone lines

Now, small businesses no longer need to limit their voice and data access options
because of the increased cost and complexity of a system. The Allworx 24x has
been engineered for direct connection with the most common and powerful
communication delivery methods.
No longer is there a need for:
• Gateways
• Expansion cards
• Third-party products
Imagine making an investment decision based on cost, value and ease of
implementation — not on limited or complicated interoperability!
The award-winning Allworx systems have been designed exclusively for small
businesses with up to 100 users per site. The same powerful features, cost
savings and ease of use found in our previous product offerings are available in
the Allworx 24x system — no compromising on any Allworx advantages!

Move at your own pace
It’s got to be easy
New technology can be daunting. That’s why
Allworx gives you the largest set of traditional
telephone capabilities of any VoIP solution in its
class! Now you can simultaneously use both
analog and VoIP phone connections as you control
the pace of your transition to new technology.
Whether you are installing a single site or linking
together multiple offices and remote users, no other
system comes close to providing the simplicity and
speed of installation.
You control when to use VoIP
The T1/ PRI and analog port capabilities in the
base configuration allow you to control when and
how you move to VoIP — so you can do so without
disrupting your business operations.
You control when to use features
All features are activated via software keys so you
can take advantage of them as your business needs
them — such as VPN, multi-site calling, follow-me
calling, live answer position, call queuing.
Easiest to use
Our customers and resellers have repeatedly told
us that our intuitive interface makes the Allworx
system the easiest to use and administer.
Easiest to install
The Allworx system includes a complete
installation checklist — a customer is up and
running in hours, not days.

are the same, it’s easy for your employees and
customers to use the new system without
skipping a beat.
Only two steps for multi-site/remote users
There is only a two-step process for multi-site
calling or remote users. Other systems require
additional investment in time, hardware and
software.
Easiest access to Internet calling
Allworx is certified by more Internet Telephony
Service Providers (ITSPs) than any other
manufacturer making it easier to access Internet
telephone calling. With multiple ITSPs to choose
