Nortel is aiming its three latest products at sufferers of ?information overload?.
The first is Symposium Messenger, which enables corporate PC users to receive fax, voice and emails on the desktop. The software pulls together voice and fax messages from Nortel?s Meridian One PBX with incoming emails from a data server. However the software requires a dedicated NT server, which will be available from Nortel distributor BT.
Meridian DECT is a version of Nortel's cordless telephony system for businesses, complying with the DECT standard. Base stations are fixed to walls and used to power office based cordless phones. The product is available as line cards to fit into the Meridian PBX.
The third product is Meridian Home Office, which enables users to receive fax, email and voicemails over the same ISDN line while at home. ?Meridian Home Office enables teleworkers to plug their Meridian phone, fax and PC to a single ISDN connection and link to the Meridian PBX at the office,? explained Simon Short, marketing director at Nortel?s enterprise networks division. ?People will be able to read their emails at home while on a conference call."
The system will only support Meridian phones, also enabling call forwarding, message waiting and dial displays.
The three products will be distributed by BT, Nortel?s sole distributor in the UK.
