Empowered by Innovation
Aspire™ from NEC allows you to converge your
voice and data network and enjoy the many advantages
of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) while enjoying the
hundreds of features you've come to expect from
traditional digital/analog switching.

Aspire lets your organization benefit from the potential
cost-saving advantages of IP even if you're not ready
to migrate to 100% IP Telephony immediately.

That's because Aspire gives you a choice:
You can deploy traditional circuit-switched
technology, VoIP or a combination, all from
one system! You have the freedom to adopt VoIP
when and where you need it.

Aspire provides peer-to-peer IP switching.
“Peer-to-peer” switching means that the stations
participating in a call are connected directly to each
other through the IP network. The signals travel
through the IP network but do not “go through” the
switch as they do in traditional telephony.

The fact that Aspire can function in and support a “hybrid” network with
traditional digital/analog switching, IP/TDM/IP switching and pure peer-to-
peer IP switching means that users can continue to utilize their existing
equipment while they begin to phase in IP Telephony and lay the foundation
for current and future networks.

Using Aspire you can reduce the cost of business by:

  • Reduced Costs of Peer-to-Peer IP Connectivity
  • Maintaining one network rather than two
  • Bypass the long distance carrier by sending voice calls over the data
  • Single cable termination to the desktop
  • Reduced brick and mortar expenses by deploying main office
    features to remote personnel
