SIPHON Selects AudioCodes CloudBondTM 365 to Enhance Delivery of Skype for Business (SfB) Voice Services
Cwmbran, UK - 24th March 2016 - SIPHON Networks Ltd (SIPHON), a leading Unified Communications (UC) Solutions Provider announced today that it has augmented its portfolio with the addition of CloudBondTM 365 from AudioCodes, a leading provider of converged voice solutions.
Commenting on this latest portfolio enhancement, Ciaran Bolger, Sales Director at SIPHON, said; “Customers are keen to take advantage of the collaboration and productivity benefits offered by Skype for Business, yet the condition and planned lifecycle of their existing infrastructure will determine the best approach to address their UC needs. That could mean an on-premise, hybrid or cloud solution. By offering AudioCodes CloudBondTM 365, channel partners who work with SIPHON can provide a flexible, cost-effective Skype for Business solution for customers working in an Office 365 environment or planning to migrate to cloud-based UC.”
Giuseppe Fragale, head of Microsoft UC Technologies and Services at SIPHON added; “SIPHON provides a comprehensive needs assessment to ensure that solution design and delivery is driven by both users’ key requirements as well as the environment in which they will collaborate. We offer administrator training to ease deployment as well as end-user training on SfB to enhance user adoption. The after-sales offering from SIPHON is just as important and in-life support from SIPHON is provided as standard for our deployments of CloudBondTM 365.
Ewan Haig, UK Country Manager at AudioCodes also commented; “SIPHON is a Microsoft Gold Communications Partner, as well as an AudioCodes accredited AudioCodes APSS partner, qualified to provide end-to-end support for AudioCodes solutions for Skype for Business. We are pleased to expand the partnership with the addition of our all-in-one voice appliance CloudBondTM 365 to complement SIPHON’s comprehensive unified communications offering.”
