New Web Site for Used Spectel Audio Conference Bridges announced
Pricing for used Spectel bridges is pennies on the dollar of new products. All equipment comes with a money-back and satisfaction guarantee.
Spectel, a past world leader in audio and web conferencing solutions, was purchased by Avaya in 2004 for approximately $103 million in cash. Prior to the purchase, Spectel had a reputation for making the best TDM ("time division multiplexed") audio conference bridge on the market because the audio quality on the Spectel TDM bridges were, and still are, near perfect.
In the years since the 2004 purchase, most all audio conference bridge manufacturers have discontinued their TDM lines in favor of IP ("Internet protocol") bridges which are less expensive to build but also provide for audio conferences with poorer sound quality. "For day-to-day conferencing, lower IP audio bridge quality might be fine for businesses that just want the cheapest conference call they can get", remarked Herb Levitin. "But for conference calls where audio quality must be perfect, like for Fortune 500 investor calls, the conference call must be with a provider that uses the old Spectel TDM bridges like the S780 and the S700."
Conference service providers that specialize in the "operator services" (calls where an operator is part of the conference call) are creating a demand for old Spectel TDM conference bridges so they can expand or have replacement parts on hand. "Since the Spectel TDM bridges are no longer being manufactured," Levitin continued, "operator service conference providers are buying up the Spectel systems and parts that remains so they can continue to use this older, more reliable, cost effective platform for as long as possible."
The Spectel TDM conferencing systems are in particularly high demand in Europe since the bridges are configured to accept a European "E1" connection as easily as they accept an American "T1" connection. The advantage of an E1 connection is that it can accommodate 30 separate, simultaneous talk paths where the "T1" only accommodates 24.
