Nimans Introduces Zero Touch IP Handsets

Ian Brindle

Nimans is launching an enhanced ‘zero touch’ IP handset auto provisioning service to provide resellers with the ultimate choice and convenience. Resellers will be able to access their own virtual warehouse and also order Skype for Business handsets (ready to use) for the first time.

Nimans already offers zero touch provisioning for Polycom and Yealink handsets and is hailing the latest service developments as a major step forward – part of a complete end-to-end management service designed to save resellers significant time and money.

Features include:
•Estate Management – including end point ‘Geo Tag’ location tracking
•Remote firmware upgrades
•Remote periodic setting synchronisation
•’Health Status’ device tracking
•Fully secure platform

“We are taking provisioning to an exciting new level and providing resellers with the ultimate choice,” said Ian Brindle, Nimans’ Head of Conferencing and Telephony Sales. “With the explosion in hosted telephony these are ground-breaking plans designed to make resellers’ lives as easy as possible.”

They can take advantage of a ‘bonded warehouse’ facility where stock is stored at Nimans until required. It can be managed remotely by resellers who can also set-up and provision devices themselves or have them delivered direct to customers, ready to be plugged in – even Skype for Business handsets. The feature rich service also includes firmware updates.

“Nimans is renowned for its exceptional levels of service and we are very proud to offer our customers even easier ways of working with us,” Ian added. “The cross platform architecture spans data centre, in-house or hybrid deployment as part of a bespoke implementation service, which puts resellers completely in control.”

At the heart of the new initiative is an easy to use portal which features a user interface for the creation, modification and monitoring of IP devices. Device status and logging are combined with topology and configuration management solutions from a central resource.

“We are taking remote provisioning and management SaaS for IP devices to the next level,” Ian concluded. “Resellers can choose to do as little or as much as they require as part of a seamless service-orientated view of deployment. We are ahead of the game.”
