Aastra Who?


The kind folks over at No Jitter invited me to set up a blog which launched today. The first post is a discovery piece I wrote up on Aastra.

I am truly impressed with how quietly and quickly Aastra is growing. For the past several years, they have been acquiring companies – profitably. They just finished reporting their 45th consecutive quarter of profitability. (that’s over 11 years).

I didn’t know much about Aastra so I chose to discover more. I’ve met some of their staff, and had a wonderful conversation with Tim Whittington, Senior VP and GM of Aastra USA. I found it remarkable how many initiatives Aastra has underway in every sector of business communications equipment. I am particularly anxious to learn more about their new Dect phones which were just released.

Aastra has an impressive set of technologies in their portfolio. I expect we will be seeing more about Aastra as they pull together their recent acquisitions into an even stronger and broader portfolio.
