Aastra has received the prestigious China Enterprise Networking and Communications Award (CENA) for ‘Best International IP Media Phone Supplier’ in recognition of the Aastra BluStarTM 8000i Desktop Media Phone.
The award was announced at the CENCE 2011 industry conference in Shanghai, following nine months of online voting, feedback from customers and reviews by members of the judging panel, which consisted of senior industry executives.
Tim Whittington, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Aastra USA comments, “We are delighted that Aastra BluStar has been recognized for the innovation, quality and value it delivers. The CENA Awards are the most comprehensive, authoritative awards in the Chinese enterprise communications market and are hugely influential in the purchasing choices for businesses. Over 60,000 votes were cast in this year’s awards so being named ‘Best International IP Media Phone Supplier’ is a great accolade and a huge stamp of approval from the Chinese market.
“Aastra has also recently won awards at key European and US trade shows for our desktop media phone. These awards, together with the CENA Award in China, reinforce our position as a key global player in the unified communications market. They provide great external endorsement of the totally “natural collaboration” experience resulting from BluStar’s broadcast quality video and audio.”
