Karel Electronics, a provider of electronics and telecommunication services has just inked a partnership with Intellicon, a provider of enterprise communications and data capture solutions in order to deliver a new generation virtual PBX solution to the Indian market.
Under the terms of the partnership, Intellicon will integrate the IP PBX (News - Alert) and surveillance products into a converged solution developed by Karel Electronics. The converged solution will capture and communicate information to remote places in emergencies, as well as monitor the live environment remotely, according to a news report in Voice&Data.
''The alliance will make available Karel's globally reputed portfolio of security products and new generation IP PBX systems to the Indian markets,” said Osman Duman, executive VP, Karel Electronics, in a statement. “The company's products are known for cutting edge technologies to cater to a wide range of applications and solutions contextual to business needs.”
As of today, Intellicon has installed more than 5,000 systems in defense, para-military forces, state and central government establishments, the report revealed. The company plans to deliver the new offerings to SMB and government sectors, as well as create a dedicated channel network to distribute products in the SMB segment.
Intellicon is currently present in more than 30 cities, boasting offices in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Pune, Delhi and Hyderabad.
A recent TMCnet article has revealed that the virtual PBX market is set to revolutionize telecom markets worldwide. The article quotes Rob Lith, director of Connection Telecom, who commented, “Things change, sometimes very quickly and not always out in the open. So it is with hosted or cloud PBX solutions.”
Moreover, back in April, BMI-TechKnowledge published the South African PBX market report that showed the steady increase in cloud-based PBXs. Some of the indications that this trend would explode over the next coming years pointed to the fact that many organizations have begun to rely on converged PBX, better known as CBX, solutions, according to the report.
