Aculab Partners with Dell OEM Solutions for NEBS Compliant Server Platform

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor

Aculab (News - Alert), a provider of telephony products, has formed a partnership with Dell OEM Solutions to develop an NEBS (network equipment building system) compliant server platform for its GroomerII gateway appliance.

The GroomerII gateway appliance is used for integrating Internet-based telephony with traditional telephony systems.  Meanwhile, the Dell (News - Alert) PowerEdge R720t server, equipped with Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 series, is NEBS certified for use by telecom companies.  

The partnership with Dell looks to provide Aculab with server lifecycle control and a fully NEBS compliant platform, which  Aculab explained is critical for telecom customers in the U.S. that use GroomerII to support 911 emergency services or to handle calls originating in fixed and mobile Signalling System 7 (SS7) networks.

As a result, customers will benefit from faster lead times, largely due to the combination of processing power and support for NEBS standards.

Chris Brown, engineering and quality manager at Aculab, said, “When a Dell PowerEdge R720t server arrives, we only have to carry out a small amount of work to get it ready to ship. We are saving around 48 hours per server with Dell OEM (News - Alert) Solutions, because there is significantly less for us to do.”

Brown explained that the server platform allows Aculab to provide its customers with the best product and level of service possible.  Also included in the agreement is access to Dell’s IT Lifecycle Management Service, which will work closely with Aculab to manage any changes to server components that may affect Aculab software, ensuring customers benefit from continuity of performance.

Dell OEM Solutions helps companies bring their products to market quicker and more effectively by providing ready-to-go, high performing solutions that are easily customisable, said Dermot O'Connell, executive director and general manager, OEM Solutions at Dell.

"At Dell OEM Solutions we offer companies the ability to bring their products to market quicker and more efficiently by providing ready-to-go, high performing solutions that are easily customizable," said Dermot O'Connell, executive director and general manager, OEM Solutions at Dell. "This is particularly important for Aculab where time is of the essence and the ability to simply install its expansion cards and load the GroomerII software to the Dell servers means that the company can fulfil its orders quickly."
