3CX agrees to sponsor VoIP IT training at the University of Zagreb, giving the students superior exposure to the latest advances in telecommunications.
LONDON UK and ZAGREB CROATIA – 12 JUNE 2013 – 3CX, developer of the award-winning Windows VoIP PBX 3CX Phone System, and its 3CX Partner in Croatia, Callidus, today announced they have provided the University of Zagreb students within the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences access to 3CX Phone System. The installation, valued at approximately €20,000, will help the students gain hands-on experience with the industry’s best of breed VoIP PBX, 3CX Phone System for Windows.
Goran Ranogajec, CEO for Callidus, who has been working closely with the University of Zagreb to bring 3CX Phone System to the students said “We are excited to be given a chance to contribute where it is the most relevant, and that is at forming young minds, the future carriers of our industry. As modern communication technologies becomes ever more complex, they become distant and abstract to the students. That is a loss of potential because young people must discover their talents and affinities as early as possible in order to develop them. That is why we are proud to help the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences to give its students first hand experiences with Unified Communications and VoIP technologies. We hope these experiences will strengthen our business community of tomorrow!”
“This sponsorship agreement provides an excellent opportunity as it allows 3CX to bring the latest technologies and experience directly to the students. We expect this project will be an incredible success and look forward to empowering the students with the latest telecommunications trends,” said Stephen Corrigan, Sales Director for 3CX. “3CX prides itself on being ahead of the game and a world leader in VoIP PBX technology. We certainly look forward to working closely with the University of Zagreb and building synergies with the Croatian business community.”
“We hope that this collaboration will build up the synergy of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences, University of Zagreb and the business community. Therefore it will be beneficial for students in terms of later competencies and for us in the transfer of knowledge and attracting new talented students who will continue to be the basis of our excellence, too. We are very pleased that we’ve found a new partner in 3CX and looking forward to collaborate in future.”- Head of the Department of Information and Communication Traffic, Dragan Peraković, Ph.D.
“At our Faculty, especially at the Department of Information and Communication Traffic, we intend to offer our students ultimate scientific and research environment in the function of better basis for future successes throughout their career. We give high importance to modern communications and in collaboration with 3CX every student has the ability of individual experimentation and testing with the UC system and thus the chance of developing VoIP applications, which will, undoubtedly, further improve our courses and programs.” – Head of the Laboratory of Modeling and Optimizing Information Communication Networks and Services, Ivan Forenbacher, B.S.
