3CX, a company that develops VoIP phone system and solutions, in association with Way 2 Communicate, its partner in Newcastle, has supplied 3CX Phone System to students at the Department of Computing, Engineering and Technology at the University of Sunderland.
VoIP systems are changing the pace and integration of communications. 3CX Phone System installation will help students gain exposure to modern telecommunications solutions by giving them hands-on experience with the industry’s best VoIP PBX, according to officials at 3CX.
3CX has also agreed to sponsor VoIP ICT training at Sunderland to give students greater exposure to cutting edge telecommunications.
“The installation of 3CX Phone System in our department will particularly benefit the students from across the world studying telecommunications as part of their degree or on the specialist MSc Program,” said Phil Irving, senior lecturer in the Department of Computing, Engineering and Technology at the University of Sunderland.
Way 2 Communicate (W2C) is one of the North East’s communications solutions providers. Based on 3CX Phone System platform, the company provides fully featured Virtual PBX, the W2C Virtual PBX (also called Virtual Switchboard) to SMEs and institutions. Their service also includes direct dial numbers (DDI); including free 08 numbers with one SIP account.
“The installation gives students a new understanding of practical technologies,” said Philip Pugh, sales director for Way 2 Communicate, “and will demonstrate how strong relationships can be forged between education and local businesses.”
“Sponsoring the University of Sunderland enables 3CX to bring technologies and experience directly to the next generation of technologists and entrepreneurs,” said Stephen Corrigan, sales director for 3CX, in a statement.
“As a world leader in VoIP PBX technology, we look forward to working closely with the University and with the business community across the North East. We anticipate this project will be a tremendous success, one that we will replicate to empower ICT students around the world,” Corrigan added.
