Rate differences make GSM gateways popular
GSM gateway supplier, Vierling, and eudisa, a service provider focusing on communications solutions and based in Neuching, Germany, have entered into an agreement to cooperate together in the German marketplace. Effective immediately, eudisa will offer Ecotel GSM gateways from Vierling along with the relevant consultation, installation and maintenance services. Through this cooperation with eudisa, Vierling can further expand its network of qualified system houses throughout Germany for Ecotel GSM gateways.
"We believe there exists considerable potential for GSM gateways in the German market due to a mobile radio rate structure that makes such solutions pay off", said Ulrich Diehl, managing director of eudisa. "GSM gateways help to exploit the rate differences between fixed-to-mobile calls and mobile-to-mobile calls in the best possible way. Companies of all sizes can reduce the amount of money they are spending on domestic and international calling. GSM gateways are particularly popular among companies that have offices in other countries due to the huge savings they produce on roaming charges. We find that the combination of high-quality products from Vierling and our services generates true added value for our customers."
eudisa will primarily offer its customers the compact Ecotel GSM gateways with up to eight GSM channels as part of a complete package including consultation, installation and maintenance services. These gateways include their own mobile radio modules and antennas and can be used with SIM cards from any carrier. Once connected to a company's PBX, the GSM gateway works to reduce charges for mobile radio calls by up to 70%. Besides the compact Vierling solutions, eudisa will also offer Ecotel VTM multichannel gateways from Vierling along with the relevant services. These systems are designed for use by large companies and can accommodate up to 32 GSM channels in a 19" housing.
"Our sales & marketing tend to place significant emphasis on the very important German market", noted Wolfgang Peter, managing director of Vierling. "We are working to further expand our network of distributors, system houses and specialized dealers. With eudisa, we have gained another outstanding system house. Thanks to the company's existing customer base and proven consultation expertise and overall dependability, we feel convinced that this venture will be successful."
