Successful tests will guarantee reliability and compatibility

Kaarst / Ebermannstadt, Germany. NEC Infrontia Germany recently completed a successful test of Vierling’s Ecotel GSM gateways for use with NEC telecommunications systems including the Aspire and XN120 product lines. Users of NEC communications systems and Vierling Ecotel GSM gateways now have access to a reliable and compatible communications solution. Users will also have future access to product-specific technical documentation for the combination of NEC telecommunications systems and Vierling Ecotel GSM gateways along with specially trained support personnel. NEC Infrontia and Vierling plan to provide one another with mutual assistance as they further develop their communications and GSM gateway solutions, including technical coordination and marketing.

Leading quality and technology in the area of GSM gateways “We decided to test Vierling’s Ecotel GSM gateways for use with NEC telecommunications systems because Vierling is the undisputed quality and technological leader in the market for GSM gateways”, noted Andre Schmeisser, Technical Manager at NEC Infrontia Ltd. in Germany. “The tests we performed exceeded our expectations: The NEC Aspire and
NEC XN120 telecommunications systems functioned smoothly with the Ecotel GSM gateways and provided optimum voice quality from the very start. All of the possible connection scenarios and applications, including the classic least cost routing and mobile extension applications, were handled by the standard configurations of the two systems.”

Least cost routing application
Least cost routing is the main application of the Ecotel GSM gateways. This involves connecting the gateway via an ISDN or IP interface to the NEC telecommunications system. The GSM gateway routes all outgoing calls from the communications system to mobile radio networks via different SIM cards as a function of the destination mobile radio number. The gateway takes costly landline-to-mobile calls and turns them into cost-effective “in-network” mobile-to-mobile calls.

Mobile extension application
Using the mobile extension application, the Aspire and XN120 telecommunications systems from NEC provide PBX functions on employee mobile phones including features such as call hold, inquiry calls and transfers. The Ecotel GSM gateway makes the necessary calls between the Aspire telecommunications system and the employee mobile phones via cost-effective mobile-to-mobile calls. The Ecotel GSM gateway has no trouble at all transporting the mobile extension features provided by the NEC Aspire telecommunications system.

Service, support and marketing
“As part of our joint efforts, we will make special technical documentation encompassing the insights gained during these tests available to NEC Infrontia and Vierling employees”, noted Wolfgang Peter, managing director of Vierling Communications. “In addition, we will prepare our support personnel for projects where Ecotel GSM gateways and the NEC Aspire and XN120 telecommunications systems are used jointly. In the future, we will work to assist one another in the further development, coordination and marketing of our solutions.”
