NEC Launches Fully Renewed UNIVERGE® SV9000 Series Communications Platforms

Latest evolution of powerful enterprise communications solution marries rich functionality and flexible deployment

Hilversum (NL), Dallas (USA), August 20, 2019 – NEC, global leader in Enterprise Communications & IT solutions, today announced the launch of the newest evolution of its acclaimed UNIVERGE SV9000 series communications platforms. NEC’s SV9000 is a series of highly reliable, sizable and adaptable systems that serves customers from small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) to large enterprises with rich and powerful UC capabilities.

Investing for the future
In the renewed series, NEC, no.1 globally in the UC call control market, has introduced several key enhancements, including collaboration applications in a dynamic delivery model for both premises and cloud-based deployments along with a new line-up of enhanced desktop telephones (UNIVERGE DT500 & DT900 series). The investments made in the evolution of its offering underpin NEC’s long-term commitment to the market to provide solid, superior and state-of-the-art solutions that customers can rely on. Instrumental in support of NEC’s Smart WorkSpace, the SV9000 series integrates the best of its UNIVERGE UC and Collaboration technology with a host of services that deliver seamless workflows and bring the employee experience to the next level.

Powerful line-up
“We are excited to bring this powerful line-up of solutions to our global markets,” said Rod Johnson, Director Product Management & Sales Engineering at NEC Enterprise Communications Technologies. “Our new SV9000 series continues NEC’s trend of creating a natural migration path for customers, while evolving the technology to meet the needs of today’s businesses for utmost responsiveness, productivity and collaboration.”

Dynamic delivery
The UNIVERGE SV9500 is a robust, feature-rich system that is ideal for geographically distributed organizations. It is designed to help solve today’s communications and collaboration challenges and offers easy integration with NEC’s unique vertical solutions.

The SV9500 communications platform integrates simply into existing IT technology and is available as both virtualized software and as dedicated appliance, so customers can choose the solution that best fits their business strategy based on either on-premises, cloud or hybrid delivery. Supporting traditional analogue, digital and IP devices, the system can scale up to 192,000 users when networking multiple systems.

Streamlined application integration through the simplified user licensing structure makes it easy to configure, use and manage. A new SV9500SE model now brings the SV9500 and its many abilities to smaller sized organizations.

Integrated applications
The UNIVERGE SV9100 is designed as an all-in-one unified communications (UC) platform, offering SMBs a simple though sophisticated upgrade to SIP technology. With simplified installation and management, the highly scalable architecture provides businesses from 10 up to 900 users with a powerful and cost effective communications solution.

The uniquely diverse built-in applications that the SV9100 provides, require no external PC or server and can be easily activated with licences – making them highly cost effective and reliable:

  • InUC provides video conferencing, collaboration, document sharing, Presence and Instant Messaging for any business of up to 128 users.
  • InGuard protects a business against toll fraud attacks monitoring all call activity 24/7 and detecting any suspicious call activity instantly.
  • InHotel is a Front-of-House Application combining a complete Property Management System with tightly integrated telephone system functionality, ideal for hotels of up to 120 rooms.

New enhancements to the SV9100 include a more powerful processor, more memory for future InApp developments and enhanced security features.

Extreme value for money
“The SV9000 series is a key pillar of our business strategy to further expand our global market coverage. Their powerful functionality, flexible deployment and extreme value for the money gives us full opportunity to successfully address the small to enterprise market worldwide”, Johnson concludes.

NEC offers a broad range of enterprise communications solutions – ranging from small to very large systems – that effectively support enterprise and SMB customers whose requirements span from traditional TDM to full IP and 100% software-based deployments.
