Ericsson-LG has a range of telephony, soft client and remote handset solutions that can easily be deployed outside the traditional environment.
1 - Mobile Extension (no internet required)
This is a great feature that presents an incoming office call to your handset/DID directly on your mobile number. No further applications are required.
This feature is similar to call forwarding however you can dial * on your mobile during a call to:
- Transfer the call to another extension
- Park the call
- Dial a paging zone
- Transfer the call to a conference room.
What else might your customers like to know?
- These features are available with all Ericsson-LG extensions, including Ericsson-LG iPECS Cloud
- Tele-workers can log in or out of a queue
- Tele-workers can be notified of voicemail messages remotely
- Tele-workers can call their DID to make an external call.
- These mobile extension features can be turned on or off at the end of the day or shift.
2 - iPECS UCS
iPECS UCS allows staff that are working remotely to easily make and receive a work call on any device. Calls can be handled as if the tele-worker was at their office handset.
3 - IP handsets and Cordless Phones
Remote tele-workers desiring a handset to work from home have the option of a cordless phone or IP handset. They simply take the device home and connect it to their home network to enjoy the same features as if they were working in the office.
LANCOM Virtual Private Networks provide businesses with safe and secure networks that can be utilised remotely. This offers your customers a safe, flexible and cost-effective way to achieve remote working with the highest level of security protocol enabled.
LANCOM SD WAN Site to Site allows for a router to be set up from home and connected via 4G or nbn™ for a direct connection back to the office. It's zero touch deployment - your customers' remote workers simply turn on the router. The home worker and their handset are now connected to the office.
LANCOM Management Cloud enables your customers to manage their network remotely, incredibly useful especially as people are encouraged to work from home.
Your total security is only as good as the weakest link. You can have end point protection on your laptop – but what if the gremlins come in via your mobile?
Similarly – you might have everything at your end sorted out – but what if there are holes in your cloud and/or network security?
Check Point total security
You need to educate your customers that all of these intrusion points need to be covered. In fact – checking on this for them would form a valuable (paid) assessment product. Even 3 out of 4 isn’t enough.

Increase productivity while creating a secure environment with innovative technologies like threat emulation, threat extraction and artificial intelligence.

Increase productivity while creating a secure environment with innovative technologies like threat emulation, threat extraction and artificial intelligence.
