The comms giant said it would operate localised direct marketing programmes and the campaign would also involve a roadshow. It kicks off in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France and Spain before creeping across the rest of EMEA.

EMEA channel wonk Amanda Giddins said: "We are working with our committed resellers to increase their revenue and profit streams enabling them to offer new IP applications, convergence and secure mobile offerings with the knowledge they are fully supported by a market leading provider." ®
