IMPORTANT NEC ANNOUNCEMENT: SV8100 end of life dates confirmed.
After 3 years of very successful and ever growing sales of the SV9100, NEC is formally declaring the SV8100 end of life, this is being phased in over the next 13 months starting with the withdrawal from sale and support of its UC Suite and InApps software by 31st March 2018 followed by System and MyCalls licences as of 31st March 2019.
This means that no new user licenses for NEC System or Application software (UC, InApps, MyCalls) will be available for sale and no further Software Updates will be made available.
In order to smooth the transition to the SV9100 series NEC have introduced a simple and low cost upgrade path. Many components can be transferred across to the SV9100 including all NEC Digital & IP handsets, this enables you to retain maximum investment in existing hardware and continue to enjoy full support and expansion capabilities, as well as access to new applications and stress-free conversions to SIP.
What can you do?
Many customers take this opportunity to explore converting legacy ISDN or Analogue Lines to modern SIP Trunks, in addition to the many benefits gained in upgrading to a NEC SV9100 you will also receive the extra advantages and savings of using SIP Trunks and in some cases the upgrade even pays for itself through the savings of converting your lines.
With Midland Telecom’s flexible payment options including in-house financing, upgrading to the award winning NEC SV9100 system is now easier than ever.
Alternatively Midland Telecom are pleased to announce that due to our unrivalled legacy stock holding and excellent availability to new replacement parts we will continue to offer the same great support to customers with the NEC SV8100*.
If you feel that your business will be affected by the restriction on expansion it may be wise to add additional user licences before the withdrawal date.
To discuss this further and/or check the implications to your business please contact your NEC Account Manager on 0121 214 1111.
With over 30 years’ experience, Midland Telecom is best placed to help you realise what your telecommunications can do for you.
