SIP phones serve as a more flexible, expandable and reliable way to deploy users’ SIP-based telephony. The benefits of SIP are plenty, and are especially compelling in today’s business environment – and economy – where every dollar holds its value. A SIP phone system is a perfect and simple solution for small businesses or even larger SIP endpoint deployments.
This week in SIP phone news, Panasonic (News - Alert) revealed that it would be displaying a variety of breakthrough solutions for business, industry and consumers alike – ranging from end system solutions for the hospitality, retail and education sectors to revolutionary SIP-based business communications solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) as well as the home office.
Included in this line-up are new “tailor-made” solutions and products “to enhance business processes and streamline day-to-day operations,” according to Anthony Peter, director, Direct Communications & Customer Care (DCCC) Group Panasonic Marketing Middle East and Africa. Other technology on display will include projectors, toughbook solutions, document scanners, printers and real-time, high-definition video conferencing (HDVC) solutions.
In other news, Mitel (News - Alert) Ltd., a global provider of business communications and collaboration software and services, announced that it achieved the maximum share in the UK market, surpassing both Cisco (News - Alert) and Avaya – huge players in the space – as based on the company’s number of shipments in its second 2012 quarter ending June 30, 2012 as reported by leading telecoms and IT analyst firm, MZA Ltd.
Stephanie Watson, GM, MZA Ltd., said the following about Mitel’s UK-based accomplishment, "Mitel's growth in the UK parallels the solid market share strength we have seen in recent quarters across other territories including the U.S., Canada, Australia and the Netherlands where they consistently rank as one of the leading IP vendors. The company's open architecture and industry leadership in key technologies like virtualization resonates well with organizations that are increasingly looking for more value and collaboration capabilities from their communications systems."
Wrapping up the week is news of Allworx, a provider of communications systems for businesses of any size, revealing that its product line had become compliant with key solutions from Avaya, a global provider of business collaboration systems, software and services.
