News : Unify Installs Solution for Brecon Beacons National Park Authority
Wales, UK, April 2, 2015 -- Telecom software and services provider Unify (formerly Siemens Enteprise Communications) has installed a suite of SIP gateway, hosted telephony and hosted contact centre services for the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority in Wales. The park authority now has an OpenScape Voice solution, which does not require a fixed line, allowing IT staff to switch a phone from one location in an office to another.
It was previously using an ageing ISDN telephony system that allowed only 16 simultaneous connections at any one time. Moving telephones from one location to another was a challenge as the previous system was on-premise, with each phone requiring its own networking port.
The authority’s 100+ permanent staff, plus volunteers, are tasked with maintaining the 519 square miles of uplands and mountainous terrain that makes up the park, where remote working is often essential and access to offices is limited in the winter due to weather conditions.
