Teo Demonstrates TSG-6 Solutions at AFCEA Homeland Security Conference

Industry leader for TSG-6 certified secure communications solutions to participate in premier security and technology event

MUKILTEO, Wash., Feb. 15, 2011 - Teo (, an innovative telecommunications company, formerly known as Tone Commander Systems, announced today that it will participate in the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) Homeland Security Conference, taking place February 22-24 in Washington, D.C. The company will be available at booth #211 to demonstrate its industry-leading TSG-6 certified phones for secure commercial and government environments.

Teo has led the market for TSG-6 solutions, announcing the first TSG-6 SIP compliant IP phone in April 2009. Since then, the company has continued its leadership in developing secure solutions for the industry, including two TSG-6-certified Power over Ethernet (PoE)-enabled IP phone models that received formal letters of approval from the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) in January 2011.

"Teo has a long history of providing innovative telecommunications systems to the most highly secure environments, including the CIA, the Pentagon and the White House," said Steve Hill, president, Teo. "We've leveraged this experience to offer the largest range of TSG-6 approved telephone equipment in the industry."

Teo's TSG-6 phones can be used in Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIF) areas without any other equipment for on-hook security. Special positive metallic-disconnect circuitry is built in to guarantee that no unintended microphonic audio signals are produced on any wires leaving the phone. Moreover, additional built-in circuitry completely disconnects the phone from the network when power is removed.
