Headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, Gunnebo has 100 offices in 30 countries around the world. In October 2010, Gunnebo began deployment of Microsoft Lync Server 2010 to provide its employees with enterprise voice capabilities.
To deploy voice in offices outside of Europe, the company will use AudioCodes Mediant Survivable Branch Appliances (SBAs).The SBA is based on cost-effective media gateways hosting the Microsoft Survivable Branch Appliance software package. The SBA provides a connection to the public-switched telephone network that continues to provide communications capabilities in the event of WAN failure. Gunnebo plans to use SBAs at its branch offices to provide a redundant voice connection in the case of a network outage. “We will deploy our first AudioCodes SBA in Shanghai, China. With SBAs, we can deploy voice and other Lync capabilities to our offices in Asia and other locations where we cannot afford to run redundant networks,” says Nilson.
