The award acknowledges Aastra’s IP telephony and unified communications applications and their full integration with HP’s network infrastructure. The integration of Aastra technology into the HP network has enabled businesses to benefit from a secure, reliable open-standards-based foundation for Aastra’s Voice over IP and UC products.
Additionally, with its lower total cost of ownership and easy deployment, the solution allows IT managers to spend less time maintaining their network and more time on delivering strategic business value.
Yves Laliberte, Aastra Executive Vice President says Aastra was one of the founding members of the HP Networking specialisation within the HP AllianceONE programme.
“We are delighted that HP has recognised the value of our relationship by naming Aastra as technology partner of the year in the networking category.”
Duncan Campbell, vice president of Converged Infrastructure at HP says that to manage the changing demands of customers, organisations had to accelerate “time to market” and “time to business” value.
“HP, with partners like Aastra, helps break down rigid IT silos with infrastructure specifically engineered to drive out cost and provide the foundation for agile service delivery,” he says.
