TelcoBridges Partners with Leading European Reseller Halo Kwadrat to Deliver High-Capacity Open Source Applications in Central Europe and Russia

HALO Provides Regional Service Providers with High-Density, Carrier-Grade Solutions Based on TelcoBridges Tmedia Platform


Montreal, Canada, June 25th, 2009:  TelcoBridges™, the preferred hardware and software supplier for telecom system integrators, solution developers and service providers, today announced its partnership with Halo Kwadrat, a leading European reseller specializing in open source telephony solutions.  Halo is adding TelcoBridges’ high-capacity platform to its portfolio, to deliver turnkey, carrier-grade solutions to local service providers throughout Central Europe, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Russia.

As leading major European reseller of Open Source Telephony solutions, Halo Kwadrat provides software, hardware, training and support to Integrators and service providers.  Halo differentiates itself by offering cutting-edge products, competitive pricing, fast delivery, and by providing the expertise required to obtain certifications needed to enter the Russian enterprise and carrier space.

Halo Kwadrat has chosen to resell TelcoBridges’ Tmedia TMG3200 to address the high density, high capacity, and carrier-grade reliability requirements of its customers.  Many service providers within these regions seek the functionality to provide revenue generating services - such as IP PBX, conferencing, voice and messaging services, signaling, least cost routing and other value-added voice applications; and they prefer the flexibility of an open development environment.

"Our targeted markets in Central Europe, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Russia are all demanding cost-effective, yet highly reliable product architectures like those being developed and delivered by Halo," said Michal Bielicki, Chief Open Source Officer at Halo Kwadrat.  "Our solutions provide a rock solid alternative to costly legacy telephony platforms, which are prohibitively expensive and complicated.  By adding TelcoBridges’ products, we can guarantee flawless, high-end communications for large and mid-size providers looking at open source alternatives."

“Halo is well respected throughout the markets they serve, and they’re true innovators when it comes to open source technology,” states Gaetan Campeau, President & CEO of TelcoBridges.  “By leveraging TelcoBridges’ flexible and scalable carrier-grade technologies, Halo can now offer more reliable, higher capacity systems that are typically not seen in open source configurations, thus providing their service provider customers with a more cost effective alternative for creating new revenue streams.”
