Russia's Lanadata Enters Partnership with Yealink
Since it was founded in 1994, Russia's Lanadata has been providing networking, telecom, computing and peripherals. It now supplies more than 2,000 companies across 83 regions within Russia, as well as the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) with solutions from around the world. The latest addition to its product line is Yealink's video conferencing solutions, which was just announced by the company as part of a partnership agreement it entered with the Chinese manufacturer.
In addition to the hardware it sells, Lanadata has a dealer and partnership network that delivers technical consulting, pre-sale and post-sale support, and authorization and education programs. This in part has been responsible for the growth of the company as more organizations deploy video conferencing and other solutions that call for support.
As an official distributor, the Russian based company will have access to Yealink (News - Alert)'s full line of products and services. This will require Lanadata to deliver comprehensive services, which will include identifying the needs of its customers, selecting the best product, and support throughout the entire stage of the implementation.
"Cooperation with Landata, an experienced and reliable distributor in Russia, will allow us to expand our presence in the Russian video conferencing market and improve services with partners and customers in all the regions. Yealink will continue to maintain a high level of innovation of its solutions to provide high performance communication solutions," said Stone Lu (News - Alert), vice president of Yealink at the signing of the partnership agreement.
Yealink video collaboration extends traditional conferencing environment to the desktop, as well as smartphones and tablets. The T4 series is an example of the company's desktop video collaboration phones.
The T49G has a large eight-inch LCD screen with HD audio and video resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It also includes multiple connectivity options with 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 with Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) technology for fast transfers. A recording feature lets users archive calls and transfer screen shots using a USB flash drive for training purposes and compliance regulations.
Yuri Kryatov, head of audio and video card solutions of Landata, said, "Our partners will be able to evaluate Yealink, which is a professional developer and manufacturer of audio and video products. Its technology is easy to use, compatible with video conferencing solutions on the market today and affordable."
According to Transparency Market Research, the video conferencing market is expected to grow to $7.85 billion by 2023. This is an 8.5 percent CAGR from 2015 to 2023, which is being driven by the need for scalable communication methods, growing globalization of business organizations and adoption by different verticals, including healthcare, entertainment and others. Russia and the CIS are one of the regions that will be experiencing growth, which leaves Landata and Yealink well positioned to take advantage of the new opportunities.
