Hilversum, April 10, 2012 – NEC, a global leader in enterprise communications, today introduced Integrated Communications 3000, a campaign bringing together the latest functionality for rich multi-dimensional enterprise communications in an open standards SIP-based offering.
Combining the versatility and functionality of UNIVERGE SIP@Net communications software, the UC suite UNIVERGE Business ConneCT and powerful Business Mobility, NEC’s Integrated Communications 3000 together with MA4000 management promotes to iS3000/SIP@Net customers a smart and solid evolution towards powerful Unified Communications & Collaboration in a virtualized environment.
“The importance and value of Unified Communications & Collaboration is much more than converging the phone, email and instant messaging; it’s about bringing people, processes and communications together. The multiparty video and voice conferencing capability we offer across Apple and Android smartphones and tablets is one of the first in the marketplace. We are very excited to actually deliver on this promise”, says Benne van der Lugt, Director Portfolio Management at NEC Unified Solutions.
The combined offering provides supreme flexibility in multiple dimensions:
SIP@Net now being part of NEC’s UNIVERGE portfolio of enterprise communications solutions, makes clear NEC’s focus to continuous innovation and ongoing support to iS3000/SIP@Net customers and their networks.
“Our customer base can rely on NEC and reap the fruits of the investments they have made in iS3000 and SIP@Net over the years. They can fully embrace latest UC&C functionality, independent whether their deployments are appliance based, standard industry server or software based”, van der Lugt adds.
