Novus LLC Fortifies Its Portfolio Of Lync Products With AudioCodes' Phones, Gateways And Session Border Controllers

Novus LLC, a distributor of telecommunications and IP equipment, recently announced that it is now carrying AudioCodes’ IP desktop phones, media gateways and Session Border Controllers.

AudioCodes is a leader in advanced VoIP, converged VoIP and data networking products for service providers and enterprise customers. Its products are certified to work with many Unified Communications solutions including Lync. Its “One Voice for Lync” program eases the migration of legacy enterprise voice infrastructures to Microsoft UC.

Novus has been aggressively building out its Lync with voice portfolio, partnering with best-of-breed companies to deliver complete solutions aimed at growing the market for Lync. Earlier this year, Novus became the first value added distributor in North America to achieve Microsoft Partner Network Gold Communications competency, demonstrating its proficiency with Lync and its ability to deliver superior solutions to the marketplace.

“Partnering with AudioCodes was an easy decision,” said Chris Meehan, managing partner of Novus. “They are a leader in IP voice communication and, like Novus, have deep expertise with Lync and are focused on proliferating Lync as UC platform in the enterprise.” 

Novus’ portfolio of Lync products continues to grow and includes IP phones, headsets, media gateways, SIP trunks, load balancers and Session Border Controllers.

Lync has been a driver of growth at AudioCodes, which has its global headquarters in Lod, Israel with offices throughout the world. In late January the company reported fourth quarter year-over-year and sequential revenue growth, which it attributed in part to strong sales of Microsoft Lync with voice and SBC products.
