First Point Inc., a leading value-added reseller of telecommunications equipment and networking hardware, is pleased to announce they have become an authorized sales representative for Performance Technologies' (PTI) Signaling Systems Group products. Learn more about First Point Inc. at: http://www.firstpointinc.com/.
Performance Technologies (NASDAQ: PTIX) is a global supplier of integrated IP-based platforms and solutions for advanced communications networks and innovative computer system architectures. Performance Technologies' Signaling Systems Group offers the SEGway™ product suite which includes IP STPs, SS7 over IP transport solutions, and signaling gateways that enable lower operating costs through utilization of IP networks, thereby creating competitive advantages for carriers in existing and emerging markets.
As an authorized sales representative, First Point's trained staff will assess when a customer has a need for transport solutions that can be served by a PTI solution. After the sale, PTI will perform the installation and provide technical support for the product.
First Point partnered with Performance Technologies because the products in their Signaling Systems Group offer attractive advantages to Telcos. Dennis McCahill, First Point's Southeast Sales Manager, explains, "Performance Technologies' product line of next generation STP's and Point Code Emulators, will help the ILEC market space tremendously. As the ILEC's deploy more and more soft switches and "triple play services", they will move further and further away from TDM technology and into the IP world. Performance Technologies can help expedite this deployment and save the customer both time and money."
First Point anticipates the partnership will help Performance Technologies penetrate the incumbent local exchange carriers (ILEC) market that First Point now services. With their solid reputation of delivering telecommunications equipment solutions, First Point anticipates the new venture with Performance Technologies will be successful for both companies.
