Wick Hill release: Woking, Surrey: April 3rd 2009 - Samsung converged solutions, which offer great cost saving and efficiency opportunities for SMEs, are now available through Wick Hill resellers, as Wick Hill is appointed a Samsung distributor.

Wick Hill resellers will be selling Samsung’s OfficeServ and Ubigate ranges, which integrate fixed and mobile telephones, voice and data, with hosted options available.

In difficult economic times, these secure solutions, which can be integrated into existing networks, present many opportunities to greatly reduce costs with features such as VoIP networking; the ability to incorporate mobile phones as extensions of the telephone system, charging at standard network rates; and the ability to make mobile and remote workers appear to be on the main phone network.

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: “We believe that there will be a very strong movement towards convergence of voice and data over the next few years, not least because converged solutions have the capability to reduce overheads and improve efficiency, which is important at any time, but particularly in the current economic environment.”

Mark Ivens, senior marketing manager for Samsung, said: “Samsung converged solutions will allow SMEs to gain the sort of business benefits normally only available to much larger companies. Samsung’s converged solution product range has never been stronger and now encompasses four OfficeServ platforms, three Ubigate platforms, a wide range of applications and a portfolio of ‘Hosted’ solutions. We are delighted that Wick Hill will be selling these solutions.”

OfficeServ and Ubigate

The Samsung OfficeServ 7000 range allows all employees to access their desktop and corporate applications as well as fully featured voice capabilities, regardless of their location. It runs on an IP-based communications platform, letting companies deploy sophisticated and fully unified telephony applications, secure data communications infrastructure and policy driven networks.

Samsung’s Ubigate range of business gateways provides multiple services in a single consolidated networking device, providing tightly integrated essential capabilities such as firewalls, VPNs, intrusion detection, IP telephony, compression, caching, Quality of Service (QoS) Stream and multi casting into a single, resilient and high performance platform.
