New Siemens SIP promotion strengthens Opal’s commitment to IP

Siemens Enterprise Communications and Opal, the B2B division of The Carphone Warehouse Group, are launching a compelling new promotion for channel partners aimed at highlighting the benefits of SIP Trunk Technology.

Channel partners can now get up to four free Opal SIP Trunks for three months with every Siemens HiPath OpenOffice. The combination unleashes the benefits of unified communications, and rather than limiting these to head office, provides wide area IP Connectivity allowing organisations to unlock features such as presence, instant messaging and file sharing across an entire organisation, including satellite offices and home workers.

Dave Dyer, SME marketing manager at Siemens, said: “Once an organisation has put SIP at the core of its communications network, a host of new services and capabilities become available that provide easy, personalised communications with complete control in the hands of each user, driving operational and cost efficiency. The result is an integrated user experience regardless of location or device.”

Andy Hollingworth, Opal’s head of reseller channel, commented: “This promotion supports our intention to capitalise on our position as the first-to-market tier one carrier with a SIP Trunk proposition. The partnership with Siemens allows us both to offer our partners increased competitive advantage; the flexibility of Siemens HiPath OpenOffice UC software platform as well as future-proof IP connectivity using Opal SIP Trunking.”
