Finally, a Phone System Built with IT in mind

CudaTel by Barracuda Networks is the PBX that IT guys around the globe have been waiting for. It’s easy to install, easy to manage, and has a low cost with a full set of features in every model. With CudaTel, you get: World-class 24x7 support, every feature with every box (no per-user or per-feature fees), a web-based user interface that just makes sense, and standards-based interoperability without proprietary lock-in.

Appliance Design

There’s no bulky equipment to bolt to a plywood board. Put CudaTel in the rack next to your Active Directory, Exchange, Windows and Linux servers. You know that VOIP is just another application on your network— it’s time to manage it that way.

Standards-Based Technology

Have you been burned by proprietary handsets and features? Locked into proprietary technology? CudaTel uses the SIP standard protocol, supported by phones and carriers around the world. Use any SIP-compatible phone, application, or smartphone app: Polycom, SIPDroid, Acrobits— you pick! Then, get connected using any SIP-compliant VOIP service at a fraction of the cost of traditional phone service.

Full-featured Local Management

Administrators can choose to manage users, groups and phones using the CudaTel itself. Management is 100% web based, and does not require any software installation. Initial configuration can also be expedited by leveraging CudaTel with an existing Active Directory or other LDAP directory.
