King Communications
King Communications has been a valued asset to our organization for over a decade. I have had the pleasure of working with Bill, Darian and the rest of the staff on telephone, wiring, wireless, fiber and network expansion projects during that time. King Communications holds themselves to the highest standards and provide outstanding customer service not only during the installation, but for years after. Our organization has been "ahead of the curve" because of Bill's expertise and what he brings to us in the way of technology. After working with vendors in the Pittsburgh and Philadelphia TeleCo/Network wiring markets, I now realize just how fortunate we are in the Erie area to have a company who provides great service at an extremely high level consistently. No one does it better than King Communications.

Posted on Monday, July 25, 2011 at 9:29 AM

Irving, Texas – July 25, 2011 – NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced communication and IT solutions, today announced it has certified its UNIVERGE SV8000 Series Communications Servers with Skype Connect, a business solution that can enable companies to save on monthly communications costs and connect employees with the global Skype community.

NEC’s award-winning UNIVERGE SV8000 Series Communications Servers can provide companies of all sizes reliable IP telephony and other unified communications features, which give employees tools like presence and messaging to become more productive. With NEC and Skype Connect, companies can now connect customers with the click of a Skype button on their Web sites.

To obtain interoperability certification with Skype Connect, NEC’s products were tested by an independent firm, tekVizion Labs™. By being interoperable with Skype Connect, NEC customers with NEC’s UNIVERGE solutions will be able to:

  • Make outbound calls from UNIVERGE systems to landlines and mobiles worldwide billed at Skype's business calling rates
  • Receive inbound calls from Skype connected users worldwide by placing Skype's Click & Call buttons on their Web sites
  • Receive calls in UNIVERGE systems from landlines or mobile phones that call Skype online numbers that a company has purchased separately
  • Manage Skype calls using existing UNIVERGE features such as call routing, automatic call distribution, conferencing, auto-attendant, voicemail, call recording and logging

NEC continues to certify its SIP-enabled UNIVERGE communications solutions with solutions, such as Skype Connect, that can offer its business customers cost savings. 

“By certifying its communications platforms with Skype Connect, NEC is giving its business customers the ability to reduce operating costs and connect with millions of Skype users worldwide,” said Barry Castle, Skype Connect Product Marketing Manager. “We believe the addition of NEC to our global partner community is further validation of the value that Skype Connect provides in the market for business communications solutions.”

"Our interop standards are designed to help ensure business customers can expect reliable, consistent service and a positive quality of experience."

"Based on demand we're seeing from our dealers and the market in general, and by consequently achieving this certification, NEC has shown it is committed to giving its customers the ability to leverage the functionality of Skype Connect," said Shuichi Sagawa, VP of Communications Technology Products and Support, NEC. "Our UNIVERGE SV8000 Series and Sphericall products continue to be well-suited for customers seeking a means to lower communications costs through standards-based SIP solutions like Skype Connect.”
