The Telmar Flash Drive is easy and quick to install and fits in a 3.5-inch or 5.25-inch SCSI drive disk form factor slot.

Telmar has recently launched a replacement Solid State Disk (SSD) for service providers to upgrade their switching system. The Telmar Flash Drive (TFD) is an integrated solution that utilizes proven SCSI drive architecture and industry-standard Compact Flash Card technology to provide a solid state, drop-in replacement for electro-mechanical hard drives. Not only is the TFD is cost efficient, it’s also less likely to fail than a standard hard drive due to its high reliability and solid state with no moving parts.

The TFD is currently available in two physical packagings: Hard Disk Drive (HDD) replacement with no external removable storage device and Magneto-Optical (MO) or tape drive replacement with externally removable CF memory card slot. The TFD emulates the operation of a SCSI hard drive disk and requires no additional software for operation due to its SCSI data storage/bootable drive. To view a list of part numbers and models, click here.

This fast and efficient field replace allows service providers to have a quick, low-cost flash memory solution for their legacy system through TFD’s configurable firmware that matches legacy systems software. The TFD is quick and easy to integrate and has been deployed and proven in many platforms.

Even in a tough economy, it’s possible for wireless carriers and enterprises to find a solution that benefits all stakeholders including the end users. The Tango

The Tango Abrazo benefits the operator, enterprise and end-user.

Networks’ Abrazo™ mobile Unified Communications (mobile UC) is just that solution which utilizes the best of the carrier network and the best of the enterprise voice communications network, marrying the two to create a truly unified communications/fixed mobile convergence experience.

Last year, Telmar announced a strategic relationship with Tango Networks to resell the Tango Abrazo™ mobile UC solution and is now ready to take fixed-mobile convergence to the next level of service in the Caribbean Islands. The Tango Abrazo extends the features and functions of an enterprise’s IP-PBX or UC Platform to any mobile phone, creating a Fixed-Mobile Converged Unified Communications (UC) environment.

Now an enterprise can easily manage its mobile communications along with rest of their fixed voice, data, and unified communications network. Not only does this make their communications network more efficient, it also helps save both OPEX and CAPEX for the enterprise.

FIP Technology Creates Custom Shipping Mold

Packaging and shipping telecom equipment requires a wide assortment of shipping options. More often than not, creating a custom-fitted package is the best way to ensure a safe delivery. In order to continue delivering the highest quality products and services to our customers, Telmar recently installed a new Foam-in-Place (FIP) technology system which features the most cost-effective, time-efficient packaging technology in the industry.

FIP is polyurethane foam that is molded in real-time by combining two liquid foams through a pressurized mixer at a very high temperature.  The mixture expands rapidly around the product being protected, creating a custom, protective shell.

This type of packaging technology is designed to support multiple drops and can be reused by Telmar’s customers, once custom fit.  This is a tremendous advantage for customers who forward or re-ship products that originated from Telmar because they can re-use this packaging with confidence that the equipment will arrive to its destination in good and safe condition.

The overall goal is to ensure that Telmar continues to complete quality deliveries with the highest shipping integrity in the industry.

Web conferencing. Video email. Multi-player games. We all know that’s the type of data transmitted via the web. Oh, and don’t forget, it’s done over an all IP-based network.

So how can service providers be certain they can deliver converged voice and data solutions and 3G or 4G wireless solutions at a low cost….and without sacrificing reliability or scalability?

By using a carrier-grade network server like the Sun Netra CT 410 or Sun Netra CT 810 Series Servers. Sun’s servers were the first commercial, off-the-shelf Linux servers designed specifically for the telecommunications industry. The servers’ powerful combination of Intel® architecture and multi-operating system environment allows network equipment and service providers to design, develop and deploy networks with components that meet stringent telco requirements, while also providing a choice of platforms for the central office architecture. Both the CT 410 and CT 810 are NEBS Level 3-compliant and feature support for both AC and DC power supplies.

The Sun Netra is the perfect solution for telecommunications provisioning and assurance and usage management solutions for central office environments. They are industry-standard platforms that help solve key computing issues faced by service providers – and businesses – today. Wireless service providers and other telecom carriers benefit from the high-performance, low-power consumption and reliability of the Sun Netra telecommunications data network servers.

Less than 30 days. That’s how long it takes for Telmar to turn around wireless repairs.

Not only do we offer the quickest turnaround time in the market for wireless network repairs, we also offer the best price. And our OEM-trained engineers test each product both inbound and outbound. We’ll even add on at least a one-year warranty on all repaired equipment whether it’s still covered under the original manufacturer’s warranty or not.

What more could one ask for in a wireless repair vendor? How about the ability to track the status of an order online 24/7? Done. What about submitting repair orders online? Done.

No matter what it takes, Telmar is dedicated to providing the shortest turnaround time and highest quality on all equipment repairs.
