Tele-Communication Enters into Strategic Partnership with StartReady

By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

Tele-Communication, Inc., a multi-faceted company providing both products and services within the telecommunications space that range from video conferencing and phone systems to headsets, telephony, and bandwidth, reportedly has entered into a partnership with Dutch company StartReady to distribute the first ever all-in-one appliance for Microsoft's (News - Alert) Office Communications Server.  

According to Tele-Communication officials, the StartReady UC appliance allows an organization to pilot or deploy OCS, a powerful unified communications solution, in a matter of days on a single, managed appliance at a very affordable price.
“Everyone is excited about the myriad of productivity and collaboration benefits of OCS.  We've seen how quickly it has improved our internal and external business communication, and we've seen how amazing it has been for the enterprise world,” Ryan Herbst, vice president of Tele-Communication, Inc., said in a statement. “Being able to deliver this type of power and capability to small to mid-range organizations is deeply gratifying for a consultant like me who has long awaited a technology like this that truly changes the playing field and gives business an edge.”
Lucas Wensing, CEO at StartReady said that a successful implementation of Unified Communications (News - Alert) solutions requires a profound, customer-driven approach.
“We find in Tele-Communication, Inc. a partner who supports this process in a professional manner,” Wensing said.
Wensing said that Tele-Communication’s broad knowledge of UC-related products and their long-time experience with a wide range of customers gives a confidence that StartReady Appliances would prove to be a great addition to their portfolio – and the customers will benefit from this.
StartReady delivers Microsoft-based appliances for 'Unified Communications' and “Enterprise Search.”. These appliances integrate hardware, software and maintenance in one single, quickly implemented solution.
Back in June StartReady introduced two new appliances for the Enterprise market. The Edge Scale Out Appliance is designed for companies that set special standards for physical security. The Mediation Scale Out Appliance is focused on companies with high telecommunication needs and is used by more than 750 people.
