Gigaset Communications GmbH, responsible for Gigaset Group’s business line Gigaset pro, and Teldat GmbH, Nuremberg, have agreed to launch joint activities in end-user device business with IP based phones. Starting in the summer of 2012, Teldat GmbH will integrate end-user devices produced by Gigaset Communications GmbH in its elmeg product line, thus supplementing its IP device line. The devices, which will be produced under the names elmeg IP120, elmeg IP130 and elmeg IP140, are particularly well suited for use with elmeg hybird telephone systems.
Hans-Peter Mistele, CSO at Teldat GmbH, commented: “The new IP system phones have an outstanding design, offer good usability and are the ideal complement to our portfolio. Their functions have been tailored to the features of the new elmeg hybird 120/130 communications systems and the modular hybird 300 and 600 telephone systems, which address the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises.” Maik Brockmann, Chief Sales Officer at Gigaset, emphasized: “We’re very happy about our future collaboration. Working together with Teldat GmbH as an OEM supplier for end-user devices will generate synergy effects in cultivating the SME market since Teldat can offer Gigaset brand products that are tailored to its customer base and product portfolio.
