Sennheiser Communications becomes Application Partner


Sennheiser Communications, a supplier of premium headset solutions, has joined the Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner Program (AAPP) to develop applications compatible with Alcatel-Lucent IP Touch phones. Compatibility and interoperability testing have been successfully completed for Sennheiser Communications DW Series wireless and SH / CC wired headsets in combination with Alcatel-Lucent 8 Series IP Touch and 9 Series Digital Phones.

One of the key features of the fully compatible Sennheiser Communications headset and Alcatel-Lucent phone solution is the electronic hook switch (EHS), which enables remote operations of Sennheiser Communications DW Series wireless headsets with the Alcatel-Lucent 8 Series IP Touch and 9 Series Digital Phones. Users benefit from enhanced flexibility while handling key functions remotely such as answering and ending calls, adjusting the volume or muting the headset.

“As a leading provider of premium headsets for the enterprise market, working with Sennheiser Communications is in line with our goal of providing high-quality, interoperable communications solutions for end users,” said Vincent Weyl, Senior Director of Alcatel-Lucent AAPP. “Unified Communications is gaining traction in the enterprise market, and with advanced solutions from Alcatel-Lucent, including the My IC Smart DeskPhone, working with Sennheiser Communications will provide an all-round communications solution focusing on enhanced productivity and end-user experience.”

“Through our partnership with Alcatel-Lucent, we are excited to get the opportunity to deliver value to our mutual customers through a fully tested and compatible innovative communications solution,” says Lars Riis Rasmussen, Strategic Alliance Manager for Sennheiser Communications, adding ”Being a central element in a voice communications solution, the Sennheiser Communications headsets provide leadership in sound quality, comfort and hearing protection for Contact Centres, Offices and Unified Communications professionals.”
