As an Alcatel-Lucent Global Enterprise Partner and a Platinum Sponsor, NextiraOne will have strong presence at this week’s Düsseldorf event
Düsseldorf, 21 May 2012 – NextiraOne, Europe’s leading expert in communications services, will have a strong presence at the Alcatel-Lucent Dynamic Tour set to launch its European activities on May 21st and 22nd in Düsseldorf. As an Alcatel-Lucent Global Partner for Enterprise and one of the company’s biggest partners for voice and data solutions, NextiraOne will be welcoming over 100 customers and staff to the meeting.
Alcatel-Lucent will be showcasing its award-winning OpenTouch™ Communications Solution suite, which brings together multiple parties across any device and any media – voice, video, collaboration - enabling enterprises to transform traditional one-party, voice-only communications into seamless conversations that can leverage a range of applications. The newly introduced OpenTouch Conversation is an answer to today’s popular Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend as it gives employees the freedom to seamlessly start a voice call on an office phone, move the conversation to a video conference on a PC or tablet and conclude on a mobile phone, without having to hang up and redial. It also allows participants to be added quickly and easily to the conversation or collaboration session, providing a means for highly efficient, effective, more collaborative conversations to take place around the enterprise and with customers.
NextiraOne is already successfully selling and implementing this high performance, highly versatile solution and integrating this solution into existing customer data centre facilities. “Our customers require more and more highly integrated, and flexible solutions, based on industry standards, that allow them to deploy all their communication-related application, such as Presence, IM collaboration and video. OpenTouch can meet these expectations,” said Andreas Schwarz, European Director Strategic Alliances at NextiraOne. “Enterprises will be able to integrate this solution into their data centre facilities, whether they are using public or private cloud.”
