Burnside Telecom, a UK-based company that produces GSM-enabled ‘desk phones’ for homes and offices, has announced an agreement with GAI-Tronics to create a range of rugged telephones and mobile-enabled terminals for indoor and outdoor use.
The first set of products will include versions of GAI–Tronics existing products, including weather-resistant phones and hands-free help points. Each model will incorporate a GSM communication board, removing the need for a fixed-line telephone connection. First to market will be the GAI-Tronics Commander GSM, expected in the spring.
Colin Aitken, Managing Director of Burnside Telecom, said “GAI-Tronics and Burnside have worked together to develop a more affordable integrated solution with a broader range of power management and installation features. Later this year, we will also add 3G support to our portfolio of products.”
