FYI, this story is more than a year old

Barracuda has today announced it is beginning its expansion of phone system support to new international locations, new pricing models and the rebranding of its CudaTel enterprise telephony system to Barracuda Phone System.

The company provides cloud-connected security and storage solutions to organisations worldwide, and are delivered in appliance, virtual appliance, cloud and hybrid deployments.

The Barracuda Phone System is now AT-T SIP Certified, after meeting requirements for compatibility with the AT-T IP Flexible Reach service, the company says in a statement.

"We are pleased to have achieved this important certification with AT-T and are excited that we've started to expand the Barracuda Phone System platform to international locations," says Ken Grohe, GM Emerging Products, Barracuda.

Barracuda is now part of the Polycom Technology Partner programme, and as such, is a technology partner whose solutions are designated as Polycom Ready.

The company says the Barracuda Phone System is a purpose-built appliance that is compatible with a wide variety of SIP handsets, and can be configured for use with both analogue and Primary Rate Interface (PRI) telephone services.

"Barracuda Phone System does away with per-user, per-feature licensing, giving customers access to all features available on every phone system model that Barracuda offers,” Grohe says.

“Barracuda Phone System includes features associated with enterprise-class systems, and is managed through an intuitive interface that makes telephony management easier for the administrator."

Grohe adds the pricing model is simple, with plans available by concurrent call volume with unlimited users, rather than charging by seat or by user, a fact Grohe says is a key differentiator for the solution.
