A North East telecoms specialist and long-standing member of Durham Business Club has become the first company in Europe to be awarded a prestigious accolade for its technical excellence by telecoms leader NEC Infrontia.
Gateshead based Russell Telecom Ltd received the award for its forward thinking approach to new technologies like Voice over IP (Internet Protocol), and its success in growing the market for cutting edge technology, including advanced IP systems, across the UK. Russell Telecom was the first independent telecoms company in the north of England to be set up following the de-regulation of the telecoms market in 1984.
As well as strong links with NEC, from whom it sources market leading telephony, it has partnerships with other telecoms leaders like Toshiba.
The company was singled out to receive the Technical Award for Excellence in recognition of its success in promoting IP telephony to a much wider market.
Andrew Cooper, sales director at NEC Infrontia, said “Russell Telecom has committed huge resources of time and capital to acquire an outstanding level of technical expertise. We are moving at an accelerating rate to a world of converged communications. Technologies such as Voice over Internet Protocol and Session Initiation Protocol mean that communication will rely on the internet rather than old fashioned copper wire. It’s essential that those who implement them have proven expertise. Russell Telecom qualifies on every count.”
