New partnerships, GSM gateways and DSL testers

(openPR) - Ebermannstadt, Germany. February 21, 2008. Vierling’s Mobile Communication division will present its new, cost-effective Ecotel “lite” GSM gateways as well as its partnerships with PBX manufacturers at CeBIT this year. The Measurement Solutions division will focus on the VIT-A2 DSL tester for ADSL, ADSL2 and ADSL2+ as well as the VIT-V2 for VDSL2. Vierling’s research & development unit will present its portion of the Equikom research project which is working to optimize the supply of energy into the power grid. Vierling has developed a new approach for the CeBIT 2008 show: The company is working with its established distribution and technology partners to present Vierling solutions at their own booths instead of having a separate booth of its own.

Cooperation with PBX manufacturers and new GSM gateways

During recent months, the Mobile Communication division has focused on performing diverse compatibility tests and forging new technology partnerships with leading PBX manufacturers. “We have successfully completed a highly intensive test phase in cooperation with Siemens, Aastra DeTeWe, NEC Infrontia, Auerswald, Agfeo, Funkwerk and a number of other manufacturers”, noted Wolfgang Peter, managing director of Vierling. “This is our way of ensuring that our gateways work smoothly with all of the common PBX systems.” In addition, the first “lite” version of an Ecotel GSM gateway has been shipping for a few months now. It is known as Ecotel ISDN2-120 lite. Vierling is very satisfied with the feedback it has received from specialized dealers with regard to this Ecotel GSM gateway with a reduced set of functions.

DSL testers and energy-related R&D project
Vierling is also optimistic about current opportunities in the area of DSL testers. “As always, the VIT-A2 tester for ADSL, ADSL2 and ADSL2+ remains a top seller. More than 10,000 units of the different models of this device are already in use in Germany”, said Wolfgang Peter. “Now we also have a tester for VDSL2 in the form of the VIT-V2, which should further bolster our position in the area of easy-to-use testers designed for mass deployment.” Vierling is very proud of its innovative work in communications technologies. For example, the Equikom research project is focused on improving the supply of energy into the power grid. Here, Vierling is working under the banner of the “E-Energy” technology project organized by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institut fuer integrierte Schaltungen (IIS), Siemens Industry, the technology company iAd from Grosshabersdorf, Germany and other partners.

Many small appearances instead of a single booth
For CeBIT 2008, Vierling decided to rely on its established partners as opposed to running its own booth. Specialized dealers can obtain information about Vierling products at booths organized by the following Vierling distributors: Allnet (hall 13, C57), Herweck (hall 12, C30) and Komsa (pavilion P34). These distributors will be presenting Ecotel GSM gateways as well as the VIT-A2 DSL tester. An Ecotel GSM gateway will also be presented by Vierling technology partner D-Link (hall 13, booth D71). Vierling’s R&D activities in the area of energy efficiency will be on display at the E-Energy booth (hall 9, booth C75). “As always, we consider CeBIT to be an outstanding platform for meeting with business partners and entering into joint efforts”, added Wolfgang Peter. “We will have many of our employees from product management, sales and marketing onsite in order to meet with new and existing sales and technology partners.”
