NEC Philips is introducing the latest version of the company’s high-end IP communication platform Univerge SV7000 to the South African market.  The product offers customers an excellent solution for native and hybrid enterprise networking with an extremely scaleable platform and a wide range of applications and advanced integration with Microsoft LCS.
“The Univerge SV7000 server is a scalable IP solution that can be distributed across IP Wide Area Networks (WANs)," says Lex de Gier, MD: international channels at NEC Philips Unified Solutions .

"This means that not only does the customer get a cost-effective enterprise telephony solution based on an IP network infrastructure, but  that the benefit and capabilities are extended to IP phones, SIP phones, media gateways, media converters, voice services, survivable remote media gateway controllers and many multimedia applications.”
The heart of the system is based on a true client/server design that does not require traditional hardware to support analogue stations or trunk circuits.  System survivability is an essential element, with a unique self-healing architecture that ensures business continuity. Its converged architecture streamlines operations and maintenance of the company network architecture and reduces operating costs. Additionally it provides organisations with the flexibility to either centralise applications at corporate level, or at branch offices.
Thabo Johnson, executive manager: NEC Philips at GijimaAst, adds: “As strategic exclusive partner to NEC Philips in South Africa, we are extremely excited to see the latest version of the Univerge SV7000 launched in our market.  The modularity of the platform makes it highly flexible and suitable for enterprises, ranging from large international businesses and government organisations, to national businesses, hospitals and universities.”
