Telit is to begin providing M2M modules to Brazil’s Intelbras for use in a PBX system that integrates different types of IP, digital, analog and GSM technologies.
In a statement, the module maker said its GL865 QUAD would handle GSM communications functionality for the PBX Impacta Line system, allowing callers to place landline calls over the mobile network.
The company also said it had developed an accessory board with GSM trunks for the PBX Inpacta Line.
The board can be inserted in the Inpacta Line rack so that calls can be routed over GSM trunks, reducing mobile phone charges.
According to Telit (London, UK), other technologies in the market have achieved this functionality by using analog voice interfaces or gateways, lowering audio quality and leading to connection lags.
Telit claims its system will support the sending of text messages from PBX extensions and can also manage incoming and outgoing calls, improving efficiency while reducing telephone usage and connection costs.
“Using Telit M2M technology in this solution not only delivered feature improvements but also made it more cost effective than buying analog trunk boards and mobile interfaces or gateways, providing our product a real technological advantage in the Brazilian market,” said Aluísio Maykot Serafim, the micro and small PBX segment manager for Intelbras (Sao Jose, Brazil).
Telit said the deal proved that companies worldwide are more aggressively taking advantage of M2M technology to improve their products and services.
“These new solutions developed in Brazil are up to date with global demand and can be marketed anywhere in the world", said Ricardo Buranello, Telit’s Latin America director.
