Networld+Interop, Las Vegas, NV, May 8, 2001 - Trilogic Systems, an ISO-certified provider of co-source integration services and mission-critical platforms, and Teknor Applicom, a Kontron company, today announced they have entered into an agreement to deliver high performance integrated systems to OEMs. Collaborating on a project-by-project basis, Trilogic Systems will integrate mission-critical systems based on Teknor building-block solutions to accelerate the time-to-market of OEM dedicated solutions deployed in the telecommunications, converged communications and Internet infrastructure markets.
"The fundamental need of the OEM market should be recognized as one of mass customization, not ¿one size fits all´, and manufacturers and service providers must focus on satisfying that need," said David Paul, president of Trilogic Systems. "Teknor shares the vision of mass customization with us. They have a strong management team in place to execute this strategic vision, and we will work with them to use standards-based technology to produce customer-specific solutions for OEMs."
"This working relationship with Trilogic is a natural step for Teknor," said Claude Létourneau, COO at Teknor. "Aligning ourselves with a Value-Added Integrator such as Trilogic Systems will enable Teknor to secure new revenue streams and to further enhance its position in the market as a leading designer and manufacturer of unique platform and board-level solutions for the communications arena."
Trilogic Systems forges relationships with top suppliers of hardware, software and third party components, such as Teknor, to ensure OEM customers deploy their systems solutions within a more competitive timeframe. These partnerships provide Trilogic Systems with the technological flexibility to both build the systems OEMs need to deploy and furnish suppliers with the necessary resources to customize their off-the-shelf products into system offerings.
Teknor markets a wide range of PCI and CompactPCI platform and board-level solutions that offer a comprehensive spectrum of performance options and feature-sets. These are based on a long-standing expertise in high-density board designs and innovative platform form factors which, with this new partnership with Trilogic Systems, can now be incorporated into system-level solutions for North American-based OEMs.
