Aastra Named Major EMEA Digital Handset Supplier
Voice over IP player Aastra has been identified as the leading supplier for DECT (digital enhanced cordless telecommunications) solutions for the entire EMEA sector.
The judgement comes from independent telecoms and IT analyst organisation MZA, which after intensive scrutiny of the multi-cellular cordless PBC market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa by handset volume has concluded the enterprise communication specialist had outsold all of its competition, especially in the enterprise market.
This success includes penetration of accounts like Stroer, one of the leading outdoor advertising players, which has installed the firm’s SIP DECT line as part of a comprehensive unified communications strategy and which says the Aastra DECT offering’s delivering “excellent audio quality”.
The analyst group puts the firm’s success partly down to the fact that DECT is a hot area, offering “unique benefits” that look set to allow it to “keep its place” in terms of wireless business communications.
DECT’s strong vertical application solutions, including messaging and alarming features, are also appealing to buyers, it adds.
“By offering a comprehensive range of competitively priced DECT solutions, our sales volumes have increased this year,” confirms the vendor’s VP for global R&D, Pierre-Alexandre Fuhrmann.
Aastra is a North American headquartered firm that now offers over 50 million installed lines globally.
