Telstra teams up with Polycom

Telstra customers to be offered Polycom handsets as part of its IP telephony service

Polycom and Telstra have entered a co-branding agreement for Telstra's IP Telephony (TIPT) service.

Under the arrangement, and working on conjunction with Dimension Data, Telstra will provide co-branded Polycom SountPoint IP handsets to customers. The TIPT service is aimed at SMB through to enterprise and government. The handsets include Polycom's high-definition voice software with noise reduction technology and feature built-in screens and user interface.

Polycom A/NZ country manager, Michael Chetner, said the co-branding arrangement was the result of a number of years of work between the two companies.

"We've been working with Telstra since 2004, which was around when we began providing handsets for the IP Centrex solution," he said.

Australia continues to be important to Polycom's growth and worldwide unified communications strategy, Chetner said.

"The APAC region is experiencing the highest growth worldwide for Polycom's VoIP handsets, and Australia is one of the stronger areas in the region. This deal with Telstra reflects this growth for us," he said.

In a statement, Telstra executive director for data IP and enterprise services, Philip Jones, said Polycom's HD voice technology and expertise in feature integration made them the ideal preferred handset partner for the TIPT service.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
