The new SV9300 platform is suitable for mid-sized enterprises while the SV9100 offering offers an all-in-one UC platform for SMBs, with simplified installation and management.

The UT880, the latest next-generation desk phone, integrates a traditional desktop phone and a tablet into one device, providing UC functionality including video, instant messaging, corporate directory and more, through a desktop phone.

“We are excited to bring the SV9000 series to our customers, which will enable the workforce to enhance their productivity through seamless communications across desktop and mobile.

“The UNIVERGE SV9000 series greatly simplifies the installation of UC solutions and has made it easier for IT managers to manage UC solutions. The product supports virtualization, enabling businesses to absorb UC over a private cloud or a public cloud or over a hybrid cloud. Additionally, the product is interoperable with 3rd party devices and solutions, enabling businesses to adopt UC as per their pace instead of a fork lift investment,” said Shailendra Soni, Industry Principal, ICT Practice, Asia Pacific, Frost & Sullivan.

The UNIVERGE SV9000 series platform enables customers to utilize the latest features and capabilities by enabling easy migration to the platform and leveraging on existing hardware and licenses for a fraction of the cost of buying a new system.
