•Space saving – frees a significant amount of data centre space and power for re-deployment
•Scalability – you can expand the system very easily with minimal increases in rack usage
•Flexibility – traders can log into any turret at any time and have full access to their screens
•Versatility – private wires and turret lines can be shared with standard Cisco handsets.
•Easier to manage – a single telephony platform for the front and back offices and integrated intercom reduces need for patching
•Fast expansion capability – with a centralised IP architecture, end points can be extended to new offices without the need for additional infrastructure

Our clients

We had originally short listed Linx-Networks with two other firms. We are now more then ever convinced we made the right choice as not only is the product the best and most advanced on the market but the after sales support has been second to none.

They went beyond their call of duty in helping us sort out other issues not directly related to the turrets. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Linx-Networks to others as we are extremely happy with the product, service and management.
