FAIRFIELD, Conn.– Novus, a boutique telecommunications and IP distributor serving value-added resellers throughout North America, announced the distribution of Ferrari electronic’s OfficeMaster Gate media gateway featuring firmware that supports the new features of the next generation Microsoft Lync Server 2013, including the IPv6 protocol. Novus is the official distributor of Ferrari electronic products for the North American market.
Ferrari electronic worked in close collaboration with the Microsoft Lync product team in Redmond, Wash., to develop the firmware for the OfficeMaster Gate media gateway, and it has been rigorously tested at Microsoft over the last few months. The firmware from Ferrari electronic was released in July to coincide with the availability of the Lync 2013 Preview.
“Ferrari electronic is currently the only European manufacturer of an enhanced gateway certified for Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and it’s the first manufacturer to integrate its gateway with Lync Server 2013,” said Novus Managing Partner Chris Meehan. “This creates a compelling value proposition for resellers because they can install software-based OfficeMaster Gate gateway cards now as proof of concepts and deliver a highly scalable gateway solution with a tremendous ROI to small and medium-sized businesses looking for Lync migration solutions.”
Novus offers the Ferrari electronic OfficeMaster Gate media gateway and OfficeMaster SBA survivable branch appliance to resellers in flexible configurations as either appliances or PCI boards that can be installed in servers from HP and other leading manufacturers.
“Resellers will find the licensing options particularly appealing, since they can optionally configure gateway and survivable branch appliance functionality on a single card to reduce power consumption, minimize rack space and further reduce costs while benefitting from ongoing improvements through firmware upgrades that are free of charge within the current revision,” added Meehan.
To further incentivize resellers to deploy the Lync Server 2013-ready OfficeMaster Gate media gateway, Novus announced a comprehensive private training program for resellers who sign up to carry the Ferrari electronic products.
As an added incentive, Novus introduced a new promotion called the Novus ‘Lync in a Box’ Bundle, which is intended to help resellers earn savings when deploying Ferrari electronic solutions with snom UC edition or Aastra phones.
Resellers that purchase one Ferrari electronic OfficeMaster Gateway with any combination of 50 snom UC edition phones will receive 5 additional phones free, and resellers that purchase 1 Ferrari electronic OfficeMaster Gateway with any combination of 50 Aastra phones will earn a $200 credit toward a future purchase.
