Just when you thought Nortel was about to hitch its strategic wagon to IP-TV (video), they fire up the VoIP marketing machine. The company has introduced new VoIP packages under its – are you ready for it? – IPT 1-2-3 program. The idea is companies that haven’t used VoIP can now get them in a snap from Nortel, including unified communications. Nortel highlights Bally Technologies as a customer that has embraced Nortel’s A-B-C, 1, 2, 3 approach:
“We had a telecommunications decision to make,” said Matthew Alden, IT manager, Bally Technologies. “Do we continue business as usual or upgrade 20 global facilities to VoIP by replacing with a Nortel solution or another competitor’s solution? After working closely with Nortel we realized that the Nortel migration path from TDM to VoIP and the long-term vision to unified communications was the right business decision. Also, the Nortel solution was much less disruptive to our day-to-day global business activities and was much less expensive than the competitor’s path. Since our migration, the addition of three new U.S. and International offices has proven to be a very simple process.”
Wow, where do I sign up?!
