The GSM module for the WARP Appliance provides wireless network connectivity, giving small-medium business users a cost effective alternative to PSTN land lines in certain geographical markets. The WARP appliance is the only customizable development platform on the market that supports both PBX functionality and GSM gateway functionality together in a compact form factor. Using the WARP with GSM connectivity allows PBX customers to use the Least Cost Routing feature and avoid the high costs of fixed-to-mobile calls. In addition, the GSM capability opens the door to creative applications using SMS, such as voice mail and emergency notification. Wireless trunks can also be used for failover should the PBX’s fixed lines go down. For wireless carriers looking to build incremental traffic on their networks by displacing traditional telephone company land lines, WARP with GSM trunk connectivity provides a unique small/medium business telephone system option.
“We are very pleased that TMC has recognized PIKA with this award,” says Terry Atwood, VP of sales, marketing and customer care at PIKA Technologies. “Adding a GSM module to the WARP Appliance portfolio significantly increases PIKA’s addressable markets worldwide. This module allows value added resellers and system integrators to take advantage of GSM connectivity with features that can yield dramatic cost savings and productivity gains for wireless subscribers.”
“Last week in Miami we set new standards at ITEXPO in terms of attendee traffic, exhibitor news, and overall quality for the show, and we feel the best-of-show winners worked even harder to stand out from our field of exhibitors,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO and group editor-in-chief of TMC. “All of the companies that participated in ITEXPO helped to make it our best show ever, and we’re proud to honor companies like PIKA Technologies with a Best-of-Show Award.”
The ITEXPO Best of Show Awards recognize innovative products and solutions that were featured in the Exhibit Hall during the event. This designation serves to highlight the technological achievement and creative product features that set these winners apart from the rest of the crowd. TMC’s editorial staff evaluated the pre-show nominations, and met with vendors to inspect and review the displayed products on the first day of the Expo. A full list of the winners is posted on TMC’s Website.
