GN Netcom Sign Westcon

Westcon has signed an agreement to distribute GN Netcom corded and wireless headsets throughout Europe. GN Netcom is the world’s largest manufacturers of headsets, and provides a variety of solutions for VoIP-enabled, SMB and enterprise networks.

The distributor says that by including GN Netcom headsets into an overall value proposition, resellers gain the ability to add a relatively simple incremental revenue opportunity to a convergence solution. GN Netcom headsets are fully compatible with telephone handsets from Westcon’s telephony systems vendor partners including 3Com, Avaya, Nortel, Mitel and Siemens.

Bernie Dodwell, alliances manager of Westcon UK Ltd, commented: “The addition of GN Netcom to Westcon’s convergence portfolio represents an exciting opportunity for our reseller and solution provider partners. With headset penetration in call centre environments generally accepted to be at saturation point, now is a great time to be looking at the general office environment as a new market opportunities for these products.”
