Gujarat-based Intellicon, a leading telecom solution provider, has launched Karel's DS200, a digital hybrid ISDN communication system, in the Indian market. Last September, the company has announced its tie-up with Turkey-based Karel Electronics Corporation whereby it started to offer economical key telephone systems in the local market in association with them. "Now, we have strengthened our relationship with them and it's a win-win situation for both of us," said Sameer Parekh, Managing Director, Intellicon Pvt Ltd.
Although the relationship started by importing their products, now, both of them supplement each other with the areas of expertise we have. Intellicon has extended its relationship with meeting the software requirements for Karel solutions and further involving in the production of Karel products in its manufacturing facility. "So far, we have been doing this for the local market alone and soon to manufacture and export Karel products from India for the SAARC region," said Parekh. The company is going to upgrade its manufacturing plant for the purpose.
With the launch of DS200 in the Indian market, Intellicon is able to offer wide range of private switching solution from four lines to 1344 lines with analog, digital or KTS (key telephone systems) technologies and claims it is the only Indian company to offer such extensive solution in the market. "The new DS200 ISDN EPABX/KTS solution offers latest networking features such as E1 connectivity, QSIG, SS7 signaling and ISDN BRI/PRI," said Metin Cebeci, Sales Manager - International Marketing Group, Karel Electronics Corporation. According to the company, the product is compatible with VoIP standards and technology which allows for easy upgradability in future.
Intellicon has 250 channel partners across India for marketing its solution.
Karel will outsource its software requirements to Intellicon because of the cost advantage factor, which it was doing earlier within Turkey. "We are in to software development for specialized segments for a very longtime and we have enough expertise to convert it in to full-fledged export business," said
Intellicon has targeted a figure of Rs 25 crore as turnover in the current fiscal while registering Rs 15 crore (turnover) in the last fiscal.
