Plantronics Awarded 2015 Unified Communications Excellence Award

Voyager Focus UC Honored for Innovation
Wednesday, November 4, 2015 10:20 am PST




Santa Cruz, Calif. – Nov. 4 2015 Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), a global leader in audio communications for businesses and consumers, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Voyager Foucus UC as a recipient of the 2015 Unified Communications Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

The Voyager Focus UC, is the industry’s first wireless Bluetooth® stereo headset with active noise-cancellation (ANC) technology designed to reduce noise and distraction in open, collaborative and remote workspaces.

"No one can dispute the positive impact a great audio experience has on effective communications and collaboration," said Rich Costello, senior research analyst, IDC. “But audio experiences are increasingly being challenged, especially as traditional office environments expand to include workers in more remote and non-traditional, open-office environments that introduce more external noise factors."

A premium product for unified communications (UC) and multimedia applications, Voyager Focus UC was designed for enterprise workers in an open office or other loud environments, who want to eliminate background noise on calls or during focus time. The headset provides all day comfort and includes intuitive smart sensor technology, audio alerts, and wideband audio and hi-fi stereo sound for an outstanding calling/music experience.

“It gives me great pleasure to present Plantronics with a 2015 Unified Communications Excellence Award for their Voyager Focus UCsolution and the team’s commitment to addressing the real needs of the marketplace,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “It’s inspiring to see such commitment to excellence and I look forward to seeing future innovation from Plantronics.”

Results will be published in the November 2015 edition of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
