Aastra, a leading company at the forefront of the enterprise communication market, is offering an exclusive opportunity for Microsoft® Lync™ 2010 customers to enjoy a superior experience with a trial of two of its IP phones.

Aastra's award-winning 6721ip and 6725ip desk phones are not only compatible with, but also optimised for Microsoft Lync. With exceptional voice quality and stylish design, these two Aastra IP phones tightly integrate with Microsoft Lync and offer user-friendly access to its features, making them powerful unified communications (UC) devices.

Dr. Roger Hage, Vice President Aastra MEA says "with this initiative dubbed 'Give Your Lync a Voice', Lync customers will be able to enjoy during a risk-free 30-day trial the rich and integrated experience giving customers the power to get the most out of their Lync experience."

Now customers can have both the familiar look and feel of a high quality telephone set and the advanced productivity features like conferencing, presence, colour pictures, instant messaging and video. We simply want customers to take full advantage of the rich multimedia integration with phones which are designed to provide a superior customer experience".
