AudioCodes enables Gigaset pro to operate within Lync environments
AudioCodes and Gigaset performed a various number of tests to validate the connectivity of Gigaset pro products through AudioCodes software into the Microsoft Lync Server. As a result, the joint solution enables the seamless integration of Microsoft Lync environments and the Gigaset pro N720 IP DECT Multicell Systems using the AudioCodes Mediant gateways with AudioCodes SIP Phone Support (SPS) application. The solution offers a broad range of essential business communication features such as basic calls, call hold, call forward & transfer, directory lookup or base station roaming and handover.
“Our cooperation with Gigaset naturally enhances our One Voice for Lync offering by allowing enterprise users to go cordless”, commented Nimrod Borovsky, Vice President Unified Communications, at AudioCodes. “Our business partners are constantly looking for more ways to innovate for their customers as Microsoft Lync adoption continues to rise. We are pleased to collaborate with Gigaset on this exciting initiative."
Market success due to co-selling model
“Microsoft Lync offers a compelling solution for Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC). By combining the AudioCodes gateways and the Gigaset pro N720 IP DECT Multicell Systems, UCC and Enterprise Voice come together as an integrated solution”, says Hans-Juergen Huber, Head of Business Unit Business Customers at Gigaset. “Our Gigaset Partner Network benefits from the possibilities. AudioCodes is one of the largest Lync enablers in the world. As many of our resellers already sell AudioCodes systems, the link between them and Gigaset pro was easily made. We are now able to make Lync cordless and available at anytime and anywhere in and around any company.”
