Integrated solution delivers the latest Yealink SIP-based endpoints with Ribbon’s advanced SBC technology to provide enterprises with Teams collaboration and survivability capabilities.
Xiamen, China, July 15, 2019 — Yealink, a global leading unified communications (UC) terminal solution provider, today announced the availability of a Microsoft Teams bundled solution program with Ribbon Communications for select distributors in North America. In March of this year, Yealink and Ribbon announced that they were partnering to provide enterprises with faster adoption options for Microsoft Teams.
In addition to the partnership announced earlier this year, Yealink and Ribbon continually work together to deliver solutions designed to enhance the Microsoft Teams collaboration experience. This new program will enable systems integrators to cost-effectively deliver fully featured Microsoft Teams phones powered by Ribbon’s market-leading Session Border Controllers (SBCs), while expediting implementation, ensuring business continuity, and streamlining support efforts.
“Microsoft Teams is one of the fastest growing enterprise collaboration tools in the world. Not only are Ribbon and Yealink working together to bring an innovative solution to market, they are also offering this bundled program to incentivize systems integrators to augment their Teams implementations with this solution,” said Alvin Liao, Vice President of Products at Yealink. “The Ribbon and Yealink bundled offering is an affordable solution that can be combined with Microsoft Teams to offer a smooth migration path and survivability plan.”
The bundled program includes Yealink’s Microsoft-certified Teams phones including the T55A and T58A desk phones, and the CP960 conference phone with Ribbon’s appliance and software-based SBC 1000, SBC 2000and SBC Software edition (SWe) Lite. Full interoperability testing was successfully completed by Yealink and Ribbon earlier this year, eliminating the need for independent testing by systems integrators.
“Our latest collaborative effort with Yealink has allowed us to deliver a unique and reliable solution that only enhances the enterprise experience in a Microsoft Teams environment,” said Jennifer Kidd, Vice President of Global Business Development for Ribbon. Offering a bundled program to our highly valued distributors not only provides them with an affordable solution, but also streamlines support for systems integrators.”
Yealink and Ribbon are extending their partnership to include a bundled program offered to select distributors in North America.
The continued commitment of Yealink and Ribbon’s interoperability efforts offer systems integrators streamlined support through select distributors.
The Yealink and Ribbon bundled solution eases implementation and business continuity planning for enterprises migrating to Microsoft Teams.
