HCL Infosystems Ltd (HCL Insys) and Ericsson have expanded their relationship in India by announcing the launch of Ericsson's WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) and IP communication solutions. HCL Insys and Ericsson share a five-year old marketing relationship and HCL Insys markets telecom and enterprise products of Ericsson in India.


The Wireless LAN product is designed for superior performance for wireless data communications combined with increased security. The features of the product include an access point, a WLAN card and software. Wireless LAN is particularly suitable for companies based on several sites or for those that undertake frequent mobile project work. The software enables authentication to ensure that the right user is accessing the network and encryption that protects confidential, sensitive information. This ensures that there is no unauthorized access to the network, no eavesdropping of data and no replaying or tampering with the material. 

In the IP communication space, the company has launched Webswitch 2000 ipbx, which enables seamless integration of telephony over an enterprise's LAN. The advantage is that it reduces the total cost of ownership by capitalizing on the existing data infrastructure. The Webswitch 2000 ipbx is a standalone IP-based PBX ensuring a future proof and highly scaleable platform for the growing businesses. 

An ipbx and voice gateway platform, Webswitch 2000 is easy to install and integrate into existing networks and is targeted at SMEs. Webswitch 2000 also offers an open platform and an Application Program Interface (API) that enables integration with third party products and applications, enhancing its scalability and future proof capabilities. The company is targeting sales revenues of Rs 5 crore in the first year for these products and solutions. 

J V Ramamurthy, Chief Executive (Office Automation Division), HCL Infosystems Ltd, said, "The enterprise market has seen a sharp growth in the recent years and solutions such as these will help companies to significantly reduce cost while improving efficiency. Launching these products in India is also the extension of our strategy to build the most comprehensive portfolio of products and services and bring the latest technology and products to the consumers."
