Munich-based telecommunications specialist C4B Com For Business and Alcatel-Lucent announced today at the CeBIT that C4B has officially been accepted into the international Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner Programme (AAPP). The OmniPCX Office RCE offered by Alcatel-Lucent and XPhone™ solutions offered by C4B are compatible and have been tested and certified accordingly by both companies. In future, both companies will be expanding their activities to include sales and technical collaboration.
The Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner Programme accepts partners whose solutions represent an optimum complement to the Alcatel-Lucent portfolio. Customers thereby receive the opportunity to have special requirements covered which can only be realised in the form of joint solutions.
"We are delighted at having been accepted into the Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner Programme", claims Michael Schreier, CEO at C4B. "This makes the long-term and positive co-operation by our two companies visible for both our customers and our partners."

"The future will see us collaborating even more closely with C4B in both the marketing and technical area in order to offer our customers perfectly co-ordinated communications solutions."
