Broad-Connect Telecom to Exhibit at ITEXPO in Las Vegas, Nevada
Broad-Connect to Partner with Microsoft to Demonstrate the Use of Citel Technologies’ Media Gateway to Enable Legacy Handsets to Work on Microsoft Lync.
Vaughan, Ontario (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
Broad-Connect Telecom, Inc. a leading provider of hosted Voice, Video, Data and IT Security solutions in Canada and the USA today announced that it has been invited by Microsoft to exhibit at the upcoming ITEXPO being held August 26-29, 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Broadsoft will be attending as part of the Microsoft Lync Partner Solutions Pavilion, having recently had its SIP Trunking services qualify for Lync Server 2013 as meeting Microsoft Unified Communications Open Interoperability Program (UCOIP) for enterprise telephony.
Broad-Connect has been asked to participate at ITEXPO by Microsoft to demonstrate its total solution encompassing Citel Technologies’ media gateway to SIP enable legacy handsets to work with Microsoft Lync. Although Microsoft Lync was primarily developed for end users to use soft phones to communicate over IP, many customers continue to prefer having a physical handset on their desk. Many have however balked at the cost of a total IP telephony migration. By utilizing the system developed by Broad-Connect customers can SIP enable their legacy handsets ensuring a swift, smooth and cost effective transition to voice on Microsoft Lync. The existing cabling infrastructure can be used to connect those phones with Lync, retaining the Category 5/6 cabling for data requirements alone, thereby removing any QoS concerns.
“Broad-Connect provides a unique migration strategy using the media gateway, especially for Nortel phone users so prevalent in educational and government facilities across North America,” says Ravi Prasher, VP for Broad-Connect. “We look forward to demonstrating this capability to the many businesses, schools and government departments looking at how to integrate telephony into their total IT solution.”
This new system will enable large, geographically diversified corporations to move all of their IT and telephony requirements to Microsoft Lync in a much faster manner. At the same time, they can retain much of the functionality considered key on the telephony side of the business. Additional functionality available through IP telephony can be added to the existing handsets. A demonstration of this system will be available at the stand and everyone is encouraged to visit for a closer look at how telephony with Microsoft Lync can be simplified.
