Private Mobile Networks Ltd, the UK provider of private GSM network technology, today announced that Call-Systems Technology Ltd has been awarded Partner status following successful completion of the accreditation process. The addition of Call-Systems Technology, highly respected in the field of pagers and on-site communication products, is part of an ongoing strategy to strengthen the UK channel.
Call-Systems Technology Ltd will use the PMN platform as the basis of its Genesis GSM solution that enables the creation of a private mobile phone network as an alternative to national mobile networks on-site and standard DECT applications. Genesis also has extended interface capabilities to third party devices such as fire alarms, pagers and building management systems.
“Accreditation is vital for us, as is our close working relationship with PMN which has helped us develop Genesis and extend its capabilities to match our target customer base,” explains, Peter Hutchinson, Managing Director for Call-System Technology. “PMN’s use of industry standard interfaces and technologies, combined with our recognised expertise in delivering tailored communication solutions, will help us to successfully compete in the new fixed-to-mobile convergence market that many of our customers are now considering,” added Hutchinson.
With over 10,000 customers, Call-Systems Technology is well established in the European marketplace as a leading provider of on-site communication products. The new Genesis GSM offering sits in a portfolio that includes paging systems, two-way radios and DECT phones tailored for a number of key vertical markets such as hospitality, education, leisure, medical, industrial and retail.
“New partnerships, such as Call-Systems Technology, validate the acceptance of Private Mobile Network technology as a significant new category, as does the growing number of customers across the enterprise and, especially, within hospitality and construction industries,” comments Dean Parsons, Managing Director for Private Mobile Networks Ltd. “Partnering with innovative and forward thinking companies can only be good for the evolution of the PMN platform and continues our strategy of growing our UK channel over 2008,” added Parsons.
Call-System Technology has already won customers for its Genesis GSM solution, including the exclusive Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa in Surrey. As Duncan Couper, Front of House Manager for the Hotel commented, “Genesis GSM has made a huge difference to Pennyhill Park. Our staff can now use a single mobile handset throughout the hotel for all communications.”
