SIP & IP Phones Growth

Growth in IP and SIP telephony shows no sign of slowing for distributor Nimans where a major rise in demand has been generated. Local and Central Government and education are two of the most popular market sectors, with mid-range devices being deployed more than budget or high end telephones.

Ian Brindle, Head of Conferencing &Telephony Sales at Nimans says resellers should be aware of two distinct market segments; BroadSoft and SIP and also Skype For Business, where there’s generally a 50/50 split.

“Year-on-year our growth has gone through the roof. It’s currently running at 65% and as demand for cloud-based technology continues to rise then end points grow in tandem – further fuelled by exceptional levels of service,” he explained.

“We are working very closely with all the key vendors such as Microsoft, Polycom and Yealink, developing enhanced provisioning and reporting capabilities.

“To further help resellers we are launching an enhanced ‘zero touch’ IP handset auto provisioning service to provide resellers with the ultimate choice. Resellers will be able to access their own virtual warehouse and also order Skype for Business handsets (ready to use) for the first time.”

Nimans already offers zero touch provisioning for Polycom and Yealink handsets and is hailing the latest service developments as a major step forward – part of a complete end-to-end management service designed to save resellers significant time and money.

Ian concluded: “Mid-range devices such as Polycom’s VVX 400 series are the most popular segment with customers choosing a balance of price and performance.

“Low end products tend to sit in public areas but any deskphone device tends to be mid-range. For example we’ve just completed a 3,000 handset deployment in education (with a reseller) and they were predominantly VVX 400’s.”
