ScanSource Adds AudioCodes to its Portfolio

Distributor ScanSource Communications Europe has announced the expansion of its product line with the addition of AudioCodes, a provider of VoIP technologies and Voice Network products. The move extends the existing partnership in North America to Europe, providing resellers with further options when purchasing voice communications products and more competitive pricing.

At an initial stage, Germany-based reseller partners of the distributor will have access to AudioCodes products and solutions which are interoperable with most major PBX and IPPBX vendors in the market. AudioCodes Multi-Service Business Gateways (MSBG) and Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBC) offer converged voice and data capabilities, such as network access, routing, media gateway and security – in one single product. Together with a complete range of IP Phones, Mobility products, Media Gateways and Media Servers, the AudioCodes portfolio is comprehensive and fully equipped to address a wide range of Enterprise needs. Availability of AudioCodes products from ScanSource will be extended to France and the UK at a later date.

“One of our primary goals as a company is to extend the choice of products available to our resellers,” said Marianne Nickenig, Managing Director, ScanSource Communications Europe GmbH. “As we stock and sell the entire AudioCodes product portfolio, resellers can build flexible solutions at a lower cost with significantly shorter lead times. What’s more, as AudioCodes is a partner of our key vendor partner Avaya, it fits ideally into our product line, providing resellers a full range of unified communications options to offer to their end user customers.”

“We are pleased to become part of the ScanSource portfolio of solutions while expanding their offering for UC with the wide suite of AudioCodes VoIP products such as Media Gateways, Enterprise SBC, IP Phones and Mobility applications,” said Nimrod Borovsky, Vice President of Marketing, AudioCodes. “Over the last 16 years AudioCodes has focused on solutions for the VoIP market, enabling us to offer a complete set of VoIP solutions which are fully based on AudioCodes DSP technology. Our solid partnership with ScanSource Communications Europe will extend our ability to design and implement our enhanced offering for the European UC market and solve challenges that enterprises are currently facing with the migration to all IP networks.”
