ShoreTel, the phone systems and unifed communications provider, has announced HP has joined its Innovation Network.

The Innovation Network is a group of more than 85 partners who utilise ShoreTel’s open architecture to develop hardware, software and services that extend capabilities of ShoreTel’s UC and enterprise contact centre solutions.

As part of the agreement, HP’s switches and routers have been fully tested and certified with ShoreTel and ShoreTel Sky.

HP is also a Diamond sponsor of the ShoreTel Champion Partner Conference, which begins April 29th  in Orlando. 

Attendees can visit the HP booth to learn more about joint solutions and how the HP/ShoreTel alliance can benefit partners and customers.

“Many HP customers also use ShoreTel's unified communications solutions and are in need of compatible routers and switches, that are pre-tested and certified, to enhance the overall experience," says Bob Johnson, HP Networking Americas vice president.

"As a member of the ShoreTel Innovation Network, HP is building upon a long-standing global alliance with ShoreTel and enabling joint customers to seamlessly integrate HP routers and switches with ShoreTel offerings," he says.

“We’re excited to welcome HP to the ShoreTel Innovation Network – we’ve been working together as a member of the HP AllianceOne Network partner program to offer best of breed solutions to our joint customers, and now ShoreTel customers can enjoy easier integration to HP switching and router offerings,” says Sam Koury, ShoreTel vice president of channels and strategic alliances.

“There is a substantial ecosystem developing around ShoreTel’s open platform that shows the importance of tight integration of a company’s communications system with their business applications and processes, workflows, and networking and storage infrastructures,” says Koury.
