AudioCodes' offerings latest addition to Ingram NZ’s UC portfolio

19 Apr 18

Ingram Micro NZ has struck a deal with AudioCodes to add the company’s solutions to its considerable unified communications distribution (UC) portfolio.

Ingram NZ UC team aims to provide a wide range of offerings combined with support for partners to create solution packages that can suit a wide range of end-users.

AudioCodes range of SBCs (session border controllers) and gateways are a crucial piece of infrastructure enabling Ingram NZ to design and offer these end to end UC solutions.  

Its range of applications, management tools and SfB and Teams certified IP phones also broadens its offerings in the endpoint space.

“AudioCodes has been a leader in the SBC and gateway market for many years with particular strength in the Microsoft SfB space,” says Ingram Micro NZ UC business manager Danny Meadows.

“After evaluating several vendors' offerings in this space AudioCodes came out with a clear edge in both the technical capability of the products and flexibility to integrate with many different solutions. When scaling up to large enterprise and carrier-grade equipment, another big advantage is their entry point equipment which allows us to engage the SMB market for which New Zealand is so well known.”

AudioCodes designs, manufactures and sells voice over IP and converged VoIP and data networking products, applications and professional services to global enterprises, medium and small business, as well as to service providers globally.

According to its website, the company has been in operation for 25 years and now operates in over 100 countries with 700 employees.

It is currently positioned 66th out of the top 100 service providers and, it says, 50 of the Fortune 100 enterprises use its technology.

“AudioCodes selected Ingram Micro NZ as a distributor in New Zealand as their solution centric approach to distribution is unique in the Unified Communications landscape,” says AudioCodes A/NZ regional director Eamonn Kearns

“We believe this focus, coupled with their dedicated and experienced team, will enhance our ability to support our resellers and accelerate their time to market.”
