NEC India launched a new IP-enabled communication server — SL1000, in India specially for SMEs. SL1000 is an intelligent cost-effective telecommunication system, which packs affordability, efficiency and IP-telephony all into one system. The solution consumes approximately 25 % lesser power than previous generations. The device has an option of putting it on standby mode during the non-usage hours, thus saving energy when it is not in use. The system provides hybrid ports that integrate key telephones, single line telephones, FAX, etc.

It also has a scalable architecture, from a minimum of 4 trunk lines and 8 extensions to a maximum of 126 trunk ports or 128 extensions ports. SL1000 is IP-enabled, and provides 24-Key IP terminal, having the same usage as a digital key telephone in the IP environment, with its IP benefits. SL1000 has a powerful Voice Mail solution to eliminate any lost messages, with a choice of either 15 hours or 40 hours recording time. A Mobile/GSM phone can be designated as the answering terminal when users are away from the desk/office, reducing the chances of missing important calls.

The SL1000 with its built-in Alarm Sensor Support when connected to a 3rd Party Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) or motion detector, offers additional security protection, and warns of intruders when there is a forced break-in, and allows for protection against vandalism.

Speaking at the launch event, Taichiro Hashizawa, Vice President & Senior General Manager, NEC Corporation said, ‘NEC is one of the top three players in the Unified Communications space globally and has customers in more than 80 countries. India as a market is of strategic importance to NEC. It is one of our fastest growing markets today and we are committed to addressing the needs of Indian customers. The SME sector is a lucrative market segment, and with SL1000 we aim to strengthen our focus on this sector.’

Hashizawa further added, ‘Technology innovation is one of the areas that SMEs can explore to upgrade their capabilities in order to stay ahead of competition. The SL1000 is designed to offer a cost-effective and ecological communication solution with enhanced security features and scalability for future expansion or business needs.’

NEC is also looking to partner with prominent telecom service providers who can help the company to reach its customers with a bundled offering. NEC India has strategic partnerships with Enkay Technologies (India) for customers in the hospitality & enterprise segment, with Intellicon for Government & enterprise customers, and Arvind for telecom division (Syntel) to reach customers in the SME segment through their dealer network. The company also has a strategic alliance with AGC Networks (formerly known as Avaya Global Connect) as a national distributor for its private network solutions.

Raina further added, ‘Our SME strategy in India revolves around empowering our customers through product innovations such as SL1000, and by strengthening our partner ecosystem by adding five to ten ISVs and taking our dealer base from 350 to 500 by end of 2011. We are positioning our solution as a customized telecommunication system that helps SMEs lower their TCO yet offers efficiency and affordability.’
