In January 2008, Positron Telecommunication Systems Inc. was created to develop and market sophisticated VoIP equipment for enterprise communication and collaboration through communication service providers. The company’s products integrate VoIP and traditional telephony in stand-alone systems that combine ease of use with powerful functionality.
Positron Telecommunication’s VoIP devices connect analog devices (telephone, fax and modem) to an IP-Network, gateways connect PSTN users to an IP Network or analog PBX, as well as Key Systems to an IP-Network.
Positron Telecommunication’s VoIP devices provide an ideal platform to launch converged voice and data services, support SIP Proxy’s, integrate to Microsoft OCS through a combined Mediation server/ PBX and provide sophisticated visibility into the PBX attributes through a detailed operator panel.
