InUCB Arrives for NEC’s UNIVERGE SV8100: A Small Blade Server that Packs a Big UC Punch

by Matt Klassen on January 28, 2011

Traditionally the benefits of a Unified Communications (UC) system have been exclusively enjoyed by larger enterprises; companies that have the requisitely bloated budget needed to enjoy the luxury of such innovative and advanced communications. But the problem for UC distributors has always been that such a system limits their potential customer base, essentially blocking out small and medium enterprises simply because the price points are too high and the systems are too big.

That is why in response to feedback from its sales Associates and its customers, NEC Canada has announced the availability of its best UC value to date–InUCB for the UNIVERGE® SV8100 and Sv8300.

Simply put, with InUCB NEC has managed to bring high quality enterprise-grade Unified Communications features and technologies to small and medium-sized businesses, reducing the overall size and cost of the UC technology by including it as a blade on its popular UNIVERGE SV8100 and SV8300 communications servers, but still offering the same great features and services of larger more expensive UC solutions.

Before the addition of InUCB, UNIVERGE SV8100 communications server was already a much coveted communications solution. As a NEC distributor, Digitcom proudly recognized both the SV8100 and SV8300 as among its best communications solutions available, some of the few systems on the market that were able to make Unified Communication a reality at competitive and affordable price points.

But if the SV8100 was good before, it’s positively amazing now. According to NEC, as a communications application, InUCB operates similar to a traditional server-based UCB, with the notable differences being, “capacity and the way it’s delivered – as a blade inside our award-winning UNIVERGE SV8100 and SV8300 communication servers.”

InUCB offers the same UC and Contact Centre features and functionality—notably rich presence, Unified Messaging, Executive Insight, Agent Desktop, Desk-to-Desk Chat, and click to dial integration with Microsoft Outlook—of an advanced, and not to mention more expensive and considerably larger, system previously unavailable to the smaller businesses due to price and relative size.

As a blade—a relatively miniscule server—within the SV8100 system, InUCB now gives companies like Digitcom the opportunity to offer advanced “application-centric” communications solutions to companies heretofore unable to utilize such advanced technology due to cost and/or space considerations.

So what does this mean for you? If you are one of the thousands of small or mid-sized business owners who have been looking longingly at expensive VoIP Unified Communications solutions, this is your lucky day, as InUCB for the UNIVERGE SV8100 is aggressively priced for the SMB customers, with savings up to half off traditional external server-based UCB system configurations. With the addition of InUCB, NEC’s UNIVERGE SV8100 has truly made Unified Communications a reality for everyone.
