Cwmbran, 17th September 2015; SIPHON Networks Ltd (SIPHON), a leading Unified Communications Solutions Provider and Gold Distributor for AudioCodes, has added Partner Solution Support (APSS) for Microsoft Products to its existing AudioCodes certification.
The APSS certification means that SIPHON can leverage the breadth of its in-house technical abilities, alongside its recently recognised Microsoft Silver Communications competency, to supply, deploy and support AudioCodes One Box 365™ installations with associated Lync consultancy and deployment services. This enhancement to its channel offering means that SIPHON is uniquely placed as a one-stop-shop for the Microsoft Lync / Skype for Business VARs and Systems Integrators who work with end customers to deliver the highest quality Microsoft UC experience.
“Amassing the requisite technical knowledge to gain formal vendor qualifications is the first step here at SIPHON: our engineers stay current on the AudioCodes portfolio by working through solutions in their day-to-day roles. SIPHON also has exceptional knowledge and experience in dealing with Session Border Controllers (SBCs) and Media Gateways, a skillset that combines neatly with our proficiency in handling Microsoft UC technologies to give us an unrivalled market offering today,” explained Giuseppe Fragale, Head of Microsoft UC Technologies and Services at SIPHON.
Commenting on behalf of AudioCodes, Yaniv Epshtein, Regional Sales Director, said, “We are very pleased that SIPHON has attained the important APSS certification alongside its Microsoft Communications Competency. This gives SIPHON the unique ability to provide end-to-end support to VARs and System Integrators as it ramps up its Microsoft UC business, proposing Lync and Skype for Business projects, based on our successful AudioCodes One Box 365 appliance technology. It’s an investment that demonstrates commitment and leadership in the market.”
Ciaran Bolger, Sales Director at SIPHON, added, “Our formal recognition as a Microsoft Partner with Silver Communications Competency, together with this latest accreditation from another industry-leading communications vendor, means that SIPHON is the best placed distribution partner to offer value-added services to the UK channel so that channel partners can achieve the very best results from their Microsoft UC projects.”
