Avinta Communications' TriVOX
product stops unwanted calls from telemarketers or other nuisance calls
from reaching your phone.
Don Wellington, VP Sales
& Marketing, explains;
"TriVOX is actually a phone
networking device for creating PBX functions among telephones on the same
phone line. During the aftermath of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, the news
was reporting that "scam" artists were calling people with phony charity
donation schemes. Avinta realized that TriVOX when used with a common answering
device, can keep such calls from even ringing the phone."
TriVOX and an answering machine
can create an "auto-attendant" behavior to a caller. A secret code (technically
an extension number chosen by the user) is set on the TriVOX module. Only
callers who have your code can ring through to your phone, by dialing the
code number upon hearing the greeting.
An added benefit is that
TriVOX makes connections easier for desired callers. For example, friends
and relatives can call from anywhere without being restricted to a recognizable
telephone number which is an implied limitation of utilizing Caller ID
Set-up is easy. Choose two
simple settings on the TriVOX module. Then plug the answering machine into
wall jack, plug the TriVOX into the answering machine, plug the telephone
into TriVOX module and you are ready to go.
"One major advantage of the
TriVOX method is that the user does not have to be pro-active (hanging
up), and doesn't need to be uncomfortable dealing with the intrusive caller.
The user does not even know the call came in."
TriVOX can also be used in
multiple modules, to create a PBX like phone network on a single phone-line.
This is an enhanced phone system for multiple person residence, home office,
dormitory or small office applications.
