Multi-Tech CallFinder Wins Award

NXTComm Eos Awards Honor 'Most Promising New Technologies'

MINNEAPOLIS, June 19 - Multi-Tech® Systems, Inc., a leading data communications technology company, based in suburban Minneapolis, announced that its CallFinder® GSM or CDMA Cellular Gateway has received an Eos Excellence of Achievement Award at the NXTComm trade exposition taking place in Chicago this week. The award, from within the Technology Innovation Group of submissions, was for Wireless/Mobile Technologies. Connected to a company's PBX, the CallFinder GSM or CDMA Cellular Gateway routes incoming and outgoing fixed line calls through lower cost wireless networks providing a substantial savings in overall telephone costs.

A judging panel of 16 consultants, technical journalists and service providers from the communications industry selected the award winners. According to Wayne Crawford, NXTComm Executive Director in a NXTComm release about the awards, "...Each Eos winner deserves significant praise for its leadership, innovation and role in driving our industry forward."

"Our CallFinder products bring together two of the most important communications technologies used by today's business," states Dan Nelson, Vice President of Sales, North America for Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. "PBXs and other telephone equipment are essential for running a business in offices, and cellular phones are essential for running a business in the field. The CallFinder bridges these two technologies and can also act as an important emergency telephone link if regular phone service is out. We are very excited about receiving this award and thank the NXTComm review panel for selecting us."

The CallFinder GSM or CDMA cellular gateway enables small- to medium-sized businesses to take advantage of lower cost wireless networks to realize substantial savings in their overall telephone bill. They connect to a PBX trunk line, PBX extension line, or a single PSTN line and route incoming and outgoing calls through a GSM or CDMA wireless network. Equipped with both FXS and FXO interfaces, the gateways offer a wide range of potential applications. When connected to a PBX or key telephone system, they convert an expensive PSTN-to-cellular call into a direct mobile-to-mobile call. When connected to an analog telephone, they can serve as the primary voice network for small remote offices or other locations that don't have a fixed line infrastructure. In addition they can be used for temporary line needs in emergency situations.
