3Com Expands VoIP Efforts, Taps Open Source

Two of the company's three new VoIP products -- the VCX Connect 100 and VCX Connect 200 -- were developed by 3Com itself. The third, however, the 3Com Asterisk Appliance, comes as the result of an OEM agreement with open source VoIP vendor Digium.

The new VCX Connect products include IP-PBX capabilities, including VoIP call control and unified messaging. The VCX Connect 100 is geared for organizations with 30 to 100 users, while the VCX Connect 200 is for organizations with up to 250 users.
