The Nexus Technology Demo Suite

The Nexus Technology Demo Suite in Exeter is a multi-vendor, state-of-the-art, fully functional IT demonstration and testing facility, loaded with the most up-to-date products and technologies from a range of industry-leading manufacturers.

We have brought together best-of-breed IT solutions into one location, so you can immerse yourself in the latest and greatest business computing technology.


We understand that investing in IT can be a minefield for organisations of all sizes. Our Technology Demo Suite provides you with an opportunity to try out and better understand the features and benefits of new technology before you buy.

Examples of the type of demonstrations that we deliver from the suite include:

Computer Infrastructure & Virtualisation

Nexus systems engineers use the suite to build complete computing environments for our customers that allow us to demonstrate the latest computer network infrastructure, virtualisation, management and data security products from our Strategic Partners.

New server and data storage hardware, virtualisation technology and simplified systems management tools provide some of the most effective ways to reduce IT costs, while boosting efficiency and agility.

Microsoft Customer Immersion Experience (CIE)

Our Microsoft Technology Specialists can help you uncover the right set of Microsoft products and solutions tailored to your business. For example we can provide a hands-on introduction to Windows 8 and Office 2013, giving you an opportunity to experience these powerful new solutions for yourself.

The Microsoft Customer Immersion Experience (CIE) delivers a true-to-life user experience that can take you through common work-related scenarios such as being productive while mobile, using social networking to get work done, and collaborating in real time with co-workers and customers using Lync and SharePoint. It also gives you a first-hand look at the fast and fluid “touch” experience in Windows 8 and the exciting new devices, tablets, PCs, monitors and smartphones.

Unified Communications with Microsoft Lync

Microsoft Lync ushers in a new connected user experience transforming every communication into an interaction that is more collaborative, engaging, and accessible from anywhere. Our Microsoft Lync-enabled live environment can provide you with a true unified communications experience.

Using the latest technology from LyncStore including Aastra, AudioCodes, Jabra, Logitech, Plantronics, Sennheiser and Snom you’ll be able to get hands-on with Microsoft Lync-certified products and applications to see how this exciting software offers a fresh, intuitive alternative to traditional telephone and conferencing systems, and brings together the different ways that people communicate into a single interface.

Contact Centre Solutions for Microsoft Lync

The suite can be used to provide a full demonstration of PrairieFyre Contact Centre for Microsoft Lync Server. PrairieFyre Contact Center is a modular, integrated software suite that provides sophisticated contact centre functionality developed exclusively for the unified communications and voice-over-IP architecture of Microsoft Lync.

If you have a requirement for a small, internally-facing contact centre or an enterprise operation serving multiple sites worldwide, you can use our demo facility to experience the simplicity and functionality of this solution first hand.

End-User Devices

Nexus have selected the latest range of tablets, laptops, touch screen notebooks, wireless headsets and conferencing devices to equip the Technology Demo Suite. Our demo suite allows you to test drive devices in comfort, but also provide us with your valued opinions so that we can tailor your IT solution to meet your  unique requirements. We are continually focused on emerging business technologies and devices, so we refresh the equipment in our demonstration suite on a regular basis.
