Ericsson is to integrate its unified communications software with the HP BladeSystem platform to help enterprises integrate their voice and data systems and make business communications applications accessible anytime, anywhere and on any device.
HP will document these offerings for customer and reseller configuration and setup as a BladeSystem solution Block.This is the latest initiative to come out of a long-standing cooperation between the two companies, and is a response to the growing demand for blade architecture-based solutions. More and more enterprises are looking to add this ‘mobility layer’ to their corporate communications. Ericsson’s enterprise mobility solutions turn mobile devices into highly-capable extensions to the corporate communications network. When integrated with HP BladeSystem, companies can use the cost-efficient blade storage and server infrastructure as a unified communications appliance, hosting a range of integrated mobility-enhancing applications that can boost productivity, increase profitability and reduce costs.
Urban Gillstrom, head of Ericsson’s enterprise business, said: Integrating our solutions with the HP product line will streamline the sales process and give enterprises a complete offering for all their mobile communications needs.
