On Thursday 27th November 2014 at 14:00 GMT we will be performing an upgrade of our Yealink provisioning service.

We don't envisage this causing any appreciable downtime. Just please be aware that if you are deploying phones at this time there may be a delay in provisioning.

The good news is that once this has been done, we will be able to offer an extra layer of security using HTTPS client certificates in Yealink phones that support this.

Regards,
The ProVu Technical Team.

ProVu are pleased to announce the launch of an online training course for Sark PBX resellers and installers.



Online training is a new endeavour for us but we believe it will soon be an important part of our customer support package for the following reasons:


  • there's no need to resellers to take a day (or more) out of their office

  • it can be completed in your own time over as long a period as you want

  • it is always available as a reference tool, even after completing the courses

  • training materials can be skipped if some parts are too easy or re-read/re-watched if some parts are difficult

  • no need to wait for a scheduled training day - online training is available as soon as you want it

  • no travel expenses!



This training course consists of a series of videos followed by a practical exercise and finally a multiple-choice quiz. There are four sections structured like this in the whole course.

The training is intended for technical support staff, installers and systems integrators. If you are interested in sales training then please get in touch and we'll organise this for you.

We believe the best way of learning is by doing so this is still very much a practical training course and you will need a SARK200 PBX and some phones just like the on-site training we have held in the past.

We are likely to be running some deals along the lines of free training with purchase of a not-for-resale Sark PBX.

The online training will also be available at no extra cost to anyone who has completed one of our Sark training days in the past. Please email us to gain access.

If you are interested in our online training please email Contact or phone us on 01484 840048.

We will be releasing more online training courses in the near future so please keep an eye on our Blog and website.

We would like to inform you that Cisco have recently announced that the SPA3102 ATA with FXO analogue port has now gone End of Life. Unfortunately the notice of this was very short and we can confirm that unfortunately we have no further units available and are unable to order any further stock.

Should you have any requirements for FXO analogue ports we can recommend the Sangoma Vega 50 as a very capable and robust analogue gateway. You can see more on the Vega 50 at our website here and if you require any further information please contact our sales team on 01484 840048 or email contact@provu.co.uk

As you may recall we announced back in June that we have taken on the Eartec range of headsets. Since their launch we have now supplied many hundreds of these headsets to our resellers and we are delighted to say, the feed back has been great and we have had zero units returned.

We think this is a real testament to the quality of these headsets and we are therefore delighted to let you know that if you have not yet tried an Eartec headset or have any opportunities on the go we will be happy to supply a sample on a sale or return basis. Just contact Anna or Gavin on 01484 840048 or email us at contact@provu.co.uk

More information on Eartec headsets can be found on website here: http://www.provu.co.uk/eartec-headsets.html
and we also have our compatibility guide here: http://www.provu.co.uk/headset-compatibility.html
This will guide you through which bottom cables are required to make any Eartec headset compatible with your IP phone.
