Leading headset manufacturer VXi Corporation (www.VXiCorp.com) has announced that its products will now be sold by German Information Technology and Unified Communications (UC) distributor ALLNET (www.allnet.de). This will make both VXi contact center and office and BlueParrott® Bluetooth mobile product lines, available for easy purchase in Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Spain.
“Working with ALLNET is a natural fit for VXi,” said Mike Ferguson, president and CEO of VXi. “Just like ALLNET, our ultimate goal is to guarantee that our customers are equipped with the best headset product to meet their needs. Through this collaboration, we can now ensure that headset users across Europe have easy access to VXi’s unparalleled sound quality and best-in-industry noise canceling products.”
Effective immediately, VXi resellers in Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Spain will find the products in stock for purchase in their local currency with quick delivery.
Both VXi’s professional and consumer product lines will be available through ALLNET, including the newest product from the contact center and office line, UC ProSet LUX™.
Modeled after VXi’s popular UC ProSet™, the UC ProSet LUX™ couples superior 88 percent noise-canceling technology with function. It uses patent-pending LED presence indication to notify others of the user’s availability visually with an illuminated status indicator located on the microphone. Unlike any other headset on the market, when used in Unified Communications applications, the LED presence indicator on the boom will light up green (available), orange (on a call), or red (do not disturb) in correspondence with the universally adopted UC colors.
The UC ProSet Lux is available in stereo (two speakers) and monaural (one speaker) style options for a completely customized setup. In addition, it features:
- Plug-and-play USB interface for ease of use without additional software or drivers;
- Hi-fi audio with digital signal processing for clearer conversations and audiophile-quality sound;
- LED presence indicator located on the microphone boom announces UC status visually by an illuminated status indicator on the boom of the headset;
- Lightweight, comfortable design with real-world durability is easy to wear, all day;
- Inline control of volume, mute and on/off hook.
Like all VXi products, headsets sold by ALLNET are covered under VXi’s two-year warranty. ALLNET is authorized for warranty service and technical support to ensure that any issues are remedied as quickly as possible.

While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
