Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 27, 2010
Aastra, a leading company at the forefront of the enterprise communication market, today announced that its Aastra IP Phones for Microsoft® Lync™ have received a “Best of Show Award” in the Large Enterprise Solution category at TMC’s ITEXPO West 2010 in Los Angeles.
The Aastra 6721ip and 6725ip phones deliver exceptional quality and value while tightly integrating with Microsoft Lync, making them powerful unified communications (UC) devices. These phones can operate independently from a PC so can be easily and widely deployed. The Aastra 6725ip offers the additional benefits of PC connection via USB cable for a tight integration with Microsoft® Lync™ Server 2010: click-to-dial is enriched with presence status ensuring a more efficient call management for business users and team collaboration.
The Aastra 6721ip and 6725ip phones were designed with a focus on providing a superior user experience to facilitate the adoption of unified communications including:
- an intuitive interface clearly displayed on a full color 3.5" LCD screen;
- easy access to the most essential calling features through navigation keys; and
- wideband audio which enhances the clarity of all calls, a particular benefit for companies doing business internationally.
“We’re honored to be chosen for this award,” said Tim Whittington, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Aastra USA Inc. “ITEXPO has been a great venue to showcase new products for Aastra over the years, and we’re pleased that the innovation, quality, and value delivered by our new phones have been recognized by TMCnet.”
“ITEXPO in LA was the largest and most successful event we’ve ever produced, and this year’s Best-of-Show winners faced an even greater challenge differentiating themselves from a large and highly competitive field,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO and group editor-in-chief of TMC. “We’re proud to honor companies like Aastra with a Best-of-Show Award, and we thank them for sharing their innovative solutions with our attendees.”
The ITEXPO Best of Show Awards recognize innovative products and solutions that were featured in the Exhibit Hall during the event. This designation serves to highlight the technological achievement and creative product features that set these winners apart from the rest of the crowd. TMC’s editorial staff evaluated the pre-show nominations, and met with vendors to inspect and review the displayed products on the first day of the Expo.
