Telephony vendor Aastra has signed up networking and storage specialist Zycko to distribute its SIP-based voice products.
The appointment marks a departure for the Canadian vendor which, prior to its acquisition of Ericsson's Enterprise Communication Business earlier this year, did not work through distributors in this country. Aastra has maintained relationships with the existing Ericsson distribution channel and claimed that the appointment of Zycko would increase its reach into the UK and Irish markets.
Zycko's group sales director David Galton-Fenzi said: “Working with Aastra, we will continue to develop IP and SIP technologies with an emphasis on openness, providing our customers with scalable solutions to meet their business needs. The partnership is an extension of our success in this market and will ensure we are positioned to meet the growing demand.”
Aastra sales manager Anne Warren added: “Zycko has a good reputation within the channel and is recognised by its resellers for the value it adds. Together with Zycko, Aastra will continue to work closely with all partners ensuring we continue to meet communication technology needs, while exceeding their expectations for value and performance.”
