Franklin enters Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) market.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 27, 1996--Franklin Telecom Wednesday announced that it has delivered the inaugural shipment of the ICV8.

The ICV8, a new product for the exploding Computer Telephony Integration market, is an Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) buss Station card with 8 ports.

The design, completed over 12 months ago, has proved itself as a mainstay in the updated version of the highly successful Franklin D-Mark Channel Bank.

According to Franklin's president and CEO Frank Peters, "Our customers are so happy with the D-Mark product that we decided to make this MVIP analog Station card available to CTI and IVR manufacturers and integrators. The pricing structure is ideal for resellers and OEM's."

Peters continued, "The CTI industry is absolutely flying! It affords us tremendous growth opportunities. Applications like Interactive Voice Response (IVR), Automatic FAX Back, Voice Mail and PC Pop Up 'Phone Calls' are spurring this growth. Franklin's entry into this marketplace dovetails very neatly with additional product development we already have underway. The ICV8 card is one of the basic building blocks for our FNet Internet Data Voice Server as well as many systems used to offer these applications."

Franklin's OEM Sales Manager Neil Wyenn says, "The ICV8 is a great solution for integrators building systems for CTI and IVR applications using the MVIP buss. The product offers Ringers on each port, loop start and a telco DC/DC power supply. The SLIC/SLAC functions are built into each port and fit right into applications like Auto Attendant, Voice Mail, Fax Servers, Intelligent Peripherals, Speech and Voice Recognition, International Call Back, Call Routing, Audiotex, and more. The ICV8 retails for $895 per 8 port card, making the cost to an integrator or OEM under $100 per port!" He continued, "We are currently shipping the product in quantity; we are also accepting orders for delivery during the next 12 months."
