NVT Phybridge showcased its CHARIoT Series portfolio of Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches for plug-and-play IP modernization at the recent Enterprise Connect 2017 Conference and Expo. The latest product in the CHARIoT portfolio is FLEX, an energy efficient long reach PoE switch that includes a managed 24-port option currently, with an 8-port unmanaged model shipping in the July timeframe. FLEX switches extend a companys LAN across longer distances to support IP-based devices and applications with the connectivity, bandwidth, and power required to perform optimally. Since 2008, Phybridge has been providing that piece of the puzzle which enables existing analog and digital (TDM) cabling infrastructure to be transformed into an IP platform. Market research indicates that some 72% of businesses have not yet moved to IP communications, though traditional telephony equipment continues to reach end-of-life status at a rapid pace. The Phybridge CHARIoT PoE switches allow businesses with legacy analog and digital telephony (TDM) equipment to transition to newer IP devices inexpensively by leveraging their existing infrastructure. Phybridge acquired Network Video Technologies (NVT) in 2015 and subsequently changed the company name to NVT Phybridge. Today, NVT Phybridge PoE switches are deployed by many of the established communications providers, including Avaya, BroadSoft, Cisco, Mitel, NEC, Polycom, ShoreTel, and Unify, to help their customers with modernization to IP.– G Buisness, New in Business Communications, April 2017
