EFL, ZyXEL and snom plan showcase for networking and IP solutions

December 13, 2011


ZyXEL Communications UK, a world-class broadband networking company that provides leading Internet solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, small and medium-sized businesses to home users, is joining forces with value-added distributor Electronic Frontier Limited (EFL), and IP telephony solutions provider, snom technology, to run a special showcase event on IP Convergence. The seminar will provide resellers with the opportunity to see the latest networking, VoIP and IP video surveillance solutions and a demonstration of how to deploy a secure, converged network.


Data, voice and CCTV resellers will be invited to attend the free half-day event at Pincents Manor in Reading, Calcot on Thursday 19th January 2012. The aim of the seminar is to provide resellers with the current trends, tools, tips and practical advice on deploying, securing and prioritising network applications and services. The seminar will feature guest speakers from ZyXEL UK, snom UK and CCTV manufacturers addressing topics such as securing the IP network, deploying secure VoIP and IP surveillance solutions and prioritising network traffic effectively.


James Harris, Product Manager for ZyXEL UK and Ireland, is one of the speakers. He said: “One of the key challenges we see facing SMB's is the prioritisation of traffic and handling of network security in converged data, voice and IP video networks. We are delighted to be invited by EFL to speak at this seminar and educate resellers on the challenges and practical experiences of deploying a converged network.”


Commenting on the forthcoming seminar, Conor McCann, EFL’s General Manager, said: “Designing and installing converged IP networks presents many challenges. This seminar, aimed at data, voice and CCTV resellers, will demonstrate how to deploy LAN or WAN networks running multiple IP technologies and will provide a comprehensive, hands-on demonstration of a converged network. We are delighted that ZyXEL will be joining us to discuss the key issues of security and traffic prioritisation.”


Nathan Brome, Channel Manager, snom UK, will also be speaking at the event: “Network security has always been a key priority for us at snom, which is why our partnership with ZyXEL is the perfect match. EFL have now presented us with an ideal platform and a great opportunity to demonstrate and discuss the strengths of our portfolio directly to our resellers.”
