Far South Networks, a South African telecommunications development company, has launched Com.X1, a complete telephony solution-in-a-box for the SME and the first to be developed and manufactured in South Africa.

Far South Networks’ Com.X1 has been built to perform well in South Africa’s unique environment, incorporating features such as hardware echo cancellation to counter echo on the Telco lines and lightening protection to protect the device from power surges from lightening storms. The solid hardware build, packaged with the IP-based software that includes advanced features such as auto attendant, call recording and voicemail-to-email that come standard on the PBX without the need for expensive licensed upgrades.
The Com.X1 is configured and managed through a simple web interface allowing the PBX to be set up within minutes. Due to the IP nature of the Com.X1, setting up Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) trunks on the PBX is simple, and guarantees immediate return on investment due to the savings that VoIP enables on call costs.
Far South Networks is not new to the world of telephony, with directors Grant Broomhall and Michael Walton collectively boasting over 40 years of technical experience in the industry.
While the Far South Networks’ Com.X1 is a product well suited to South Africa, the combination of solid hardware and innovative software design make it a leading prospect internationally. “The Com.X1 is one of the most feature-rich and cost effective telephony solutions for the SME in South Africa,” says MD Broomhall.
Even Flow Distribution is the official distributor of Far South Networks’ products.
