Jordan Grand Prix is pleased to announce that Samsung Business Communications and STL have partnered with the team to provide IP platforms for the team's Communications.

The announcement sees the installation of Samsung's award-winning OfficeServ IP Voice Server in order to deliver sophisticated business communication, including Samsung's Wi-Fi technology in one of the fiercest technological test beds on earth. Samsung Business Communications Platinum accredited partner STL will undertake the installation.

In Formula One, a world where success is increasingly achieved by the deployment of the latest technology and seamless communications between the trackside and the cars, Samsung will be linking the various elements of the Jordan Formula One team.

This includes linking the team headquarters at Silverstone, the Technical Centre in Brackley and the trackside at the various worldwide Grand Prix locations. The installation is planned for later in the month when it can be scheduled between Grand Prix commitments.

The widely acknowledged reliability of Samsung's OfficeServ platform will be key in ensuring customer satisfaction, as will the quality of voice transmission while championship progress is being monitored across entire continents.

Commenting on the contract announcement, Samsung Business Communications Sales & Marketing Director, Ali Zartash-Lloyd said, "Operating within a Formula One environment is a challenging task. We have demonstrated that we can deliver high quality, robust and technologically advanced solution for Jordan."

"We enjoy a very close relationship with STL, and as they are a Platinum partner this means that they have achieved the highest levels of training and provide the service to match. As a result, Jordan can trust that their OfficeServ system has been optimised for the heavy demands of a Formula One racing team."

Jordan Grand Prix Commercial Director, Christian Geistdoerfer said, "Samsung and STL obviously have a very close partnership. They listened to our requirements carefully and are delivering a sophisticated, optimised approach which will enable all parts of Jordan to function through the most effective IP communications solution. We are proud to welcome both companies as partners and look forward to developing our relationship into the new Midland team."

STL Business Communications Managing Director, Brendon Cross added, "It is immensely exciting to work with Jordan and our relationship with Samsung enables us to deliver a solution, using cutting edge technologies. Samsung's technological vision places them at the forefront of emerging Wi-Fi voice technology."

Samsung's vision of business communications is one of increased operational flexibility, which dispenses with the traditional office-centric view of how businesses work, and how communications services are delivered.

This vision is encompassed in the Samsung `Virtual Enterprise' which enables organisations to create increased efficiencies in their businesses, through the delivery of communications solutions to enable greater flexibility and mobility in their workforce. With an increased emphasis on mobility and the need to drive down fixed costs, Samsung is changing the rules for business communications.
