Nuvias Unified Communications practice to be rolled out across EMEA

Distributor Nuvias has announced the EMEA launch of its Unified Communications (UC) Practice.

The Practice is based on the UC capabilities and services provided by SIPHON Networks, which became part of the Nuvias Group in October 2016.

SIPHON is already established in the UK and Benelux. The UC practice will be rolled out across EMEA over the coming months, through Nuvias regional branches, starting with Germany. More Nuvias staff are being added throughout EMEA to support vendor and reseller partners.

Development of UC solutions

“SIPHON’s strong technical and solution engineering expertise has enabled it to work closely with vendors and resellers on the development of UC solutions; this factor, together with the provision of a very high level of service and solutions capabilities from SIPHON, has been instrumental in its success,” said Paul Eccleston, CEO of Nuvias.

“A major reason for joining Nuvias last year was the chance it gave us to grow and expand both in the UK and internationally. The UC EMEA launch of Nuvias lays the foundations for achieving that ambition,” added Steve Harris, EVP Unified Communications, Nuvias; and managing director SIPHON.

“This is a very exciting time in UC across EMEA, with really significant opportunities for the IT channel to move into the lucrative UC market and conquer the legacy competition. We believe that, as part of Nuvias, we are the right solutions and technology enabler to provide the service, support and technical know-how our channel partners want to help them make the most of this market opportunity.”

Vendors

SIPHON’s solutions were developed for channel partners who want to deploy either cloud-based or premise-based UC technology, solutions and services. Its vendors include BroadSoft, Polycom, Lifesize, Oracle, AudioCodes, Panasonic, Yealink and Dubber. Channel partners include Gamma, essensys, exponential-e, Freedom, Tancroft and Esprit Telecom.

“It was critical to us that SIPHON was able to address our scalability challenge by migrating our entire user base to a dedicated BroadWorks platform once we hit a certain number of users,” said said Avner Peleg, customer development director, at Cloud Services Channel Partner, hSo. “The professional services offering from SIPHON was another sweet-spot in the installation and enablement of our brand new hosted deployment. Alongside relevant training that made sure our team was completely up to speed with the requisite knowledge to go it alone, SIPHON has eased our migration every step of the way.”
