ICON appointed distributor for the Extricom Wi-Fi WLAN solutions

Nov 19, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- ICON is pleased to announce that the Extricom range of Wi-Fi WLAN infrastructure solutions designed for voice mobility and other enterprise Wi-Fi applications is now available to its channel partners.


The Extricom Wi-Fi infrastructure solution is the necessary solution for Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWLAN). It overcomes the deficiencies and limits in traditional Wi-Fi deployments which are the cause of the poor voice mobility performance commonly seen when the Wi-Fi infrastructure uses the cell based technologies from the traditional vendors.

The Extricom infrastructure solution is a ground breaking advance for ICON channel partners who can now quote for complete voice mobility solutions and deploy both the Wi-Fi infrastructure and handsets. The solution is compliant with all Wi-Fi standards.

ICONs dominant position in the UK market as specialist provider of voice mobility solutions means that for the first time the market can source a robust and reliable Wi-Fi voice mobility solution (infrastructure and the handsets) from a single knowledgeable source.

Mark Shane, Sales Director, ICON commented, Extricom is an established and proven product around the world and is the necessary infrastructure if you want to deploy a robust Wi-Fi handset solution. It is the natural partner for our range of Polycom Spectralink Wi-Fi handsets. We see this solution opening up many new opportunities for our partners in the voice mobility Wi-Fi market. We are pleased to have been chosen by Extricom as its strategic partner in the voice market.

Charles Burns, Sales Director UK and Ireland, Extricom, commented, This is an exciting step for us. ICON has a pedigree in voice mobility wireless solutions and distributes Wi-Fi handsets from the leading global player. With the advantages in VoWLAN infrastructure that Extricom has over the traditional Wi-Fi vendors I believe that ICON and its Channel Partners have the potential to dominate the VoWLAN market in the UK. Our relationship with ICON means that we have a partner in the key strategic position of being one of the few UK distributors able to supply both the Wi-Fi infrastructure and Wi-Fi handsets needed for an enterprise VoWLAN solution and support it technically.
