NEC has advised their popular “Univerge” SV8000 series phone systems will no longer be able to be expanded after 31 March 2018. This means that customers won’t be able to add additional licences for IP or SIP connections, for example. While Cogent customers will still enjoy our continued support and service, as well as extensive spare parts, our sales team will be in contact to discuss next steps for our customers, as NEC advises this is a preliminary “end of life” notice.
The systems will finally be classed “End of Life” from the end of 2018, meaning that NEC will no longer support the systems.
If you’re keen to upgrade your NEC SV8000 series system, contact Cogent.
