Frisco, TX (PRWEB) March 1, 2011
Aastra USA, a leading provider of IP telephony and Unified Communication solutions, today announced a special offer for existing 3Com customers and resellers. For a limited time, Aastra is offering free-training as well as discounts on equipment and phones to allow 3Com customers to upgrade to the Aastra 700. 3Com customers and resellers can benefit from promotional offers while migrating to a proven product with a sustainable future.
With a focus on IP, fully integrated Mobility and Unified Communications (UC), the Aastra 700 is comprised of a call control manager and a comprehensive range of UC applications pre-installed in a single virtualized server environment. The Aastra 700 and its predecessor, the MX-ONE™ Compact, are versions of the well-proven Enterprise grade Aastra MX-ONE™ and associated UC applications that have been tailored specifically for the SMB market.
This all-in-one UC solution is designed for small and medium businesses, and scales to 1,000 lines on a single chassis. As a business grows, it can be easily expanded into an enterprise solution through additional licensing. Delivered in a single 19” 3U chassis, the system can be installed and configured in an hour, and utilizes only a small space and reduces energy consumption which lowers the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
For existing 3Com customers that migrate to the A700, Aastra is offering:
- Free web-based training for an unlimited number of users during the first year of deployment
- Significant savings on Aastra 6700i series phones
- An additional free bundled “starter-pack” of licenses for optional, value-added features such as Unified Messaging and the Aastra Mobile Client for fixed-mobile convergence.
For existing 3Com resellers that join the Aastra reseller program, Aastra is offering:
- Free instructor-led training for up to 2 people per reseller organization at Aastra’s facility in Frisco, Texas ($3,000 value)
- Deeply discounted demo system which includes the IP-PBX, phones, user licenses for both standard and optional features such as Unified Messaging and the Aastra Mobile Client.
“With recent announcements regarding the NBX and VCX product landscapes, 3Com customers and voice partners are unsettled and considering their options,” said John Drolet, Vice President Indirect and Channel Sales, Aastra USA. “The Aastra 700 solution offers customers a rich UC experience with an intuitive user interface, yet low administration requirements. Aastra’s channel strategy in the US is to partner for the long term with strategically chosen dedicated VARs. As a former member of the 3Com Voice Partner Community, I am confident that the Aastra Reseller program provides an excellent opportunity for these VARs to work with a financially sound technology provider and provide great value-added product to their customers.”
Aastra will be demonstrating the Aastra 700, along with its features such as fixed-mobile convergence, at Enterprise Connect February 28 – March 2, Booth #917. More information on the solution can also be found at http://www.aastrausa.com/A700.
