In today's society digital services have become the key to the success of anyone. Hence, for being competitive it is important that these services are available, employ the latest technology and are low cost. Unfortunately, it often happens that these good intentions do not correspond to reality. In this paper an information system is proposed, targeted at those small realities affected by the digital divide and at those companies that employ out of date, high cost technologies, that provides data and voice services in a unified manner using heterogeneous devices. The system utilizes innovative technologies, in particular wireless technology, to deliver low cost solutions. The distinctive feature is that it does not depend on the network hardware infrastructure and the underlying platform. Furthermore, it deals with the configuration, accounting, security, management, and monitoring aspects while maintaining its flexibility and simplicity of use both for the administrator and end user.
