Communication solution aimed at local small to medium sized businesses

Zycko South Africa, official distributor of Polycom voice communication solutions, has introduced Polycom’s ‘wireless office in a box’ solution which enabled businesses to deploy wireless voice cost-effectively.

The Wireless-Office-in-a-Box consists of three KIRK 2010 digital enhanced cordless telecommunications (DECT) handsets and a KIRK Wireless Server (KWS) 300.

“With much of business communication taking place over the phone and the decreasing price of handsets, the demand for telephony solutions in businesses of all sizes is increasing consistently. The KIRK Wireless-Office-in-a-Box solution makes the quality and convenience of wireless telephony accessible and affordable to the SMB market,” says Fiona Mclean-Banks, Polycom Business Development Manager at Zycko.

The newly launched KIRK 2010 handset offers 12 hours of talk time and 150 hours of standby time. The newest member of Polycom’s KIRK handset portfolio, the 2010 offers hands-free speakerphone, caller ID, call timer, a 40-name phonebook, as well as a headset jack and a choice of 13 menu languages.

The Wireless-Office-in-a-Box also includes the KWS 300, a SIP-based wireless telephony system aimed at smaller sized businesses. The KWS 300 is a single-cell system that can support up to 12 handsets and four simultaneous calls. A total of six KIRK repeaters can be added to extend the coverage area.

“We are committed to meet the wireless telephony needs for customers of all sizes, and we understand that one size does not fit all,” said Sten Dyrmose, general manager for Polycom’s DECT business unit. “In the SMB space, we identified the need for a cost-effective system that is easy to deploy, competitively priced and designed to fit the needs of a smaller-sized business. The Wireless Office in a Box can be tailored to each customer, so they aren’t paying for more than they want or need.”
