“IP Telephony is making some serious claims in the market in regards to the benefits it can provide to organizations today, including lower business costs, increased employee productivity, improved customer service and greater profitability. However, what does this all really mean? The IP Telephony roadshow will give us to opportunity to share our experiences in transforming enterprise communications and offer a compelling case on why organizations should be considering IT telephony as a way of moving forwards,” said Ramin Attari, Vice President Middle East, Nortel Networks.
Nortel will kick off each event with an introductory session focusing on the virtual enterprise and a session giving details on its converged IP telephony solutions. Business partners, BTC in Saudi Arabia and Datapulse in the UAE and Qatar, will present a session on Nortel Developer Partner Solutions in their respective countries, followed by a session focusing on the requirements for converged networks. Nortel is also set to unveil a new SMB solution, the BCM50, a revolutionary IP Telephony system for SMB organisations and branch offices in the region.
“By converging multiple voice and data networks into one, Nortel’s IP solutions can position enterprises to lower deployment and operating costs by as much as 50 percent, while simplifying administration and management of sophisticated networks. Converged networks offer enterprises the ability to deploy a fully-functional communications infrastructure that is less expensive to deploy, operate and maintain, and lays the groundwork for next generation applications,” continued Attari.
