Unify certifies Konftel
Konftel’s conference phones have been certified for Unify’s key platforms. The DECT conference phone Konftel 300Wx, the Konftel IP DECT 10 base station, the SIP-based Konftel 300IP and Konftel 300IPx as well as the compact Konftel 55Wx have successfully come through the stringent tests performed by Unify.
The certification applies to the communication systems OpenScape Business V2, OpenScape 4000 V7 and OpenScape Voice V9, to OpenStage and OpenScape devices, as well to the Unify Circuit collaboration app. Unify-approved certification helps Konftel consolidate its strategy of supplying totally compatible audio conferencing solutions optimised for perfect sound for the world’s leading communication systems.
Ideal fit for Unify
“Unify is one of the key manufacturers of communication systems in the world,“ says Torbjörn Karlsson, Product Manager at Konftel. “Konftel’s aim is to offer platform-independent conferencing solutions which are perfectly tailored to the leading global communication systems. Certification allows us to ensure that the solutions from Unify and Konftel are easy to integrate, that all the features operate reliably and that our conference phones deliver a perfect sound.“
Konftel’s devices are equipped with smart features, which include a bridge function, allowing different connections to be made to conferences, call recording on an SD card and a conference guide, which starts conferences at the touch of a button. The outstanding sound quality in conjunction with Unify’s solution is provided by the OmniSound® audio technology with full-duplex transmission, hypersensitive microphones with 360° audio pick-up, powerful speakers, as well as echo cancellation and noise suppression.
Significant impact on international markets
Obtaining certification from Unify provides a strong sales argument for Konftel and its sales partners in numerous international markets.
“Certification means that our customers can totally rely on their Konftel device seamlessly operating with their Unify communications system,“ says Jeff May, UK Sales Director at Konftel.
Certification is also a particularly important factor in the sales region of Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH), one of the world’s strongest markets for Unify and Konftel.
“Our distribution and reseller partners have just been waiting for Unify certification,“ says Ralf Kalker, DACH Sales Director at Konftel. “Unify has a very strong position in our region. Certification will make it even easier for our partners to market Konftel’s conference phones and increase their market share further.“
