Photo gallery: Ingram’s second evening of UC fun and facts
Last night, Yealink was the sponsor of the second of Ingram Micro’s unified communications networking evening.
Yealink APAC senior channel manager Owen (“one name is enough,” he says) was there to give the crowd a brief presentation about Yealink’s success since its inception in 2009, including their impressive 40-50% growth year over year.
“Yealink is the Top 2 in North America and the Top 1 elsewhere,” says Owen. “95% of our business comes from outside of China, and 80% from western countries.”
Another standout fact was that some of the smarter offerings use Android OS meaning, as Connector Systems solutions architect Andy Hill put it, “you can install ‘Angry Birds’ on it if you have nothing better to do.”
Once Owen’s presentation came to an end, Ingram’s UC business manager Danny Meadows handed out some tickets for a hot lap in a Nissan GTR as prizes for some unsuspecting winners.
One such winner, Redtech Consulting director Ian Darby said, “I’m actually quite surprised. I’ve done a few track days before and they are great fun. I just hope it’s not wet.”
