Ericsson LG – Spring/Summer Product Update and Ideas Lab Workshops


Last month Ericsson-LG’s exclusive UK distributor ‘Pragma’ took to the highways and byways, travelling literally the length and breadth of the land. They visited Edinburgh, Leeds, Cheltenham and London, delivering their ‘Ideas Lab’ workshops.

The objective of this new style of ‘roadshow’ was to share recent product updates and promote their Idea’s Lab Workshop initiative.

Great news for us in that it gave us the inside knowledge as to what is new, which we have then decided to distil down (to the more ‘interesting bits’) and share with you.

First of all, Ericsson-LG are now enabling a selection of Yealink handsets to be connected to both their on premise eMG80 and UCP systems, as well as their cloud platform. To be fair, we already use some of these handsets elsewhere and I must say we really do like some of them – in particular the fabulous CP960 Conference Phone.


The fabulous Yealink CP960 Conference Phone

Here is the update communication as provided to us about the Yealink handsets:

The team has also delivered another software update for its eMG80 and UCP platforms, catchilly badged Unified 3.5 software release.

This new release brings:-

  • Enhancements to how IP DECT is delivered – supporting the deployment of the wonderful new i62 devices
  • RESTful API ~ making super use of HTTP protocols and as such enabling more efficient and cost effective use of bandwidth for internet traffic.
  • System paging and alarm enhancements ~ enhancing our safeguarding offers
  • Updated UCS application – in particular support of more than 300 CRM platforms
  • And some other less ‘headline worthy’ minor system feature updates

These upgrades are fabulous in that they improve IP DECT capability, enhance API capability and increase group communication and safety functionality of existing systems.
