Extricom Appoints ICON to Distribute Extricom WLAN Solutions
ICON, a leading VoWLAN Distributor in the UK, chooses the Extricom solution as the WLAN of choice for VoWLAN applications
ICON’s dominant position in the UK market as a specialist provider of voice mobility solutions means that for the first time, the UK VoWLAN market can source a robust and reliable Wi-Fi voice mobility solution (infrastructure and handsets) from a single knowledgeable source.
Extricom’s Channel Blanket™ WLAN technology overcomes the deficiencies and limits of traditional cell-based Wi-Fi deployments. The hand-off limitations of cell-based Wi-Fi systems, as well as their co-channel interference, are the main causes of the poor voice mobility performance commonly seen when cell-based WLAN’s are used to support VoWLAN infrastructure.
The Extricom WLAN is a ground-breaking advance for ICON channel partners who can now quote for complete voice mobility solutions and deploy both the Wi-Fi infrastructure and the VoWLAN handsets. The Extricom solution is compliant with all Wi-Fi standards to assist channel partners and integrators.
Mark Shane, Sales Manager, ICON said,
“Extricom is an established and proven product around the world and is the necessary infrastructure if you want to deploy a robust Wi-Fi handset solution. It is the natural partner for our range of Polycom Spectralink Wi-Fi handsets. We see the Extricom solution as opening up many new opportunities for our partners in the voice mobility Wi-Fi market. We are pleased to have been chosen by Extricom as its strategic partner in the voice market.”
Charles Burns, Sales Director UK and Ireland, Extricom, said, “This is an exciting step for us. ICON has a pedigree in voice mobility wireless solutions and distributes Wi-Fi handsets from the leading global player. With the advantages in VoWLAN infrastructure that Extricom has over the traditional Wi-Fi venders I believe that ICON and its Channel Partners have the potential to dominate the VoWLAN market in the UK. Our relationship with ICON means that we have a partner in the key strategic position of being one of the few, UK distributors able to supply both the Wi-Fi infrastructure and Wi-Fi handsets needed for an enterprise VoWLAN solution and also support it technically.”
