Tadiran (News - Alert) Telecom, the communications and telecom services arm of Afcon Industries, part of the Shlomo Group, is enhancing the scope of its Aeonix Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) platform with advanced video conferencing capabilities.


For this, the company has signed an OEM partnership agreement with Surf Communications (News - Alert), a specialist in multimedia processing and applications.

As indicated, the partnership will allow Tadiran Telecom to integrate SURF’s video conferencing technology into its Aeonix UC&C Solution.

Launched in the month of September 2012, Aeonix was designed to meet current and future challenges of distributed organizations. This solution is noted to deliver powerful, flexible and adaptable communications to enterprises both large and small.

The company’s simple unified management structure ensures that customers experience the lowest total cost of ownership with minimal IT resources required.

“SURF’s conferencing solution seamlessly integrates into the Aeonix UC&C platform, providing customers with proven high-definition video conferencing abilities along with audio communications, unified messaging and a variety of business applications managed centrally. We are pleased with our choice and we are highly impressed with the reliability and quality of SURF’s technology,” Eldad Barak, president and chief executive officer at Tadiran Telecom, said in a statement.

By adopting Surf’s technology, Tadiran Telecom’s Aeonix UC&C platform is enhanced with Advanced Video conferencing capabilities, including multiple opportunities for video conferencing of up to 30 users each, as well as managed audio conferencing of up to 500 users.

Enterprises and their employees now have the facility for a new HD technology for video conferencing.

 “We are very pleased with Tadiran’s selection of SURF’s video conferencing technology. We see a vast potential for video conferencing services in all kinds of enterprises, and this project is a great opportunity to demonstrate SURF’s video conferencing ability and to expose it to large organizations,” explained Udi Shani, president and chief executive officer at SURF.

Tadiran’s release also clarified that a video phone will be registered into the Aeonix platform, which will provide each individual user with all the benefits of video conferencing directly from their desk.

This solution saves the user time and money, and increases efficiency through a significant decrease in travel cost and unnecessary overhead.
