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.

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
