Fremont, Calif. - Logitech
International is teaming up with GN Netcom and will offer Jabra headsets and
speakerphones through distribution channel partners in North America.
The two companies plan
to roll out the offering globally as well as collaborate on the development of future
audio peripherals for the unified communications (UC) market.
Logitech will begin
offering select co-branded Jabra headsets and speakerphones for unified
communications next month.
The products are
currently certified to work with Avaya, Microsoft, Cisco and Polycom under the
Jabra brand, Logitech said. Devices include the Logitech BSP420 USB speakerphone
(Jabra Speak 410), the Logitech BH970 wireless DECT headset (Jabra Go 6430) and
the Logitech BH870 wireless Bluetooth headset (Jabra Pro 9450).
"Jabra is already a leader in the UC space and
we will continue to market the full range of Jabra-branded solutions for
unified communications. The agreement with Logitech enables GN Netcom to
further expand the presence of Jabra products in North American sales
channels," said Mogens Elsberg, CEO of GN Netcom, in a statement. "We believe
this agreement will lead to more people using Jabra headsets and speakerphones
for their UC solutions."
