HP Continues to Innovate with ShoreTel, Joins ShoreTel Innovation Network
ShoreTel and HP have had a successful partnership for a few years now, primarily because HP delivers some of the best technology on the market that integrates well with ShoreTel technology. We are always looking for ways to strengthen our partnership and improve upon what we offer our customers.
This partnership took another step forward today as HP officially joined ShoreTel’s Innovation Network. The ShoreTel Innovation Network consists of more than 85 partners that take advantage of ShoreTel’s open architecture to develop hardware, software and services that work in conjunction with our technology. With HP joining the ShoreTel Innovation Network, ShoreTel customers can enjoy easier integration to HP switching and router offerings.
The ShoreTel and HP partnership has resulted in best-of-breed Unified Communications and networking solutions with industry-leading reliability, scalability and simplicity, with lower TCO. In addition, HP has one of the most robust offerings to support virtualized environments, which enable the deployment of ShoreTel on VMWare. The ability to virtualize key applications allows organizations to take advantage of virtualized infrastructure benefits including server consolidation, increased security, operational flexibility and higher applications availability during planned and unplanned downtime, among other things.
Our continued, fruitful partnership with HP further underscores our push toward creating the best communications systems possible for our users. So far, our Innovation Network includes the likes of Verizon, AT&T, dvsAnalytics, Juniper Networks, Windstream and much more. Verizon offers Verizon IP Trunking, which consists of a SIP trunk directly to an organization’s IP PBX. AT&T offers Business in a BoxSM, which provides small locations voice and data services over a single network connection and device. dvsAnalytics’ Encore™ Workforce Optimization is a software suite that includes applications for call and screen recording, quality management, desktop and speech analytics, and workforce management.
We are excited about the opportunities that HP provides as being a member of ShoreTel’s Innovation Network and how that will help users of ShoreTel technology build the best communication technology solution available to them.
