PIKA Technologies and ICG Deliver Voice in the Air and at Sea
OTTAWA, CANADA - International Communications Group Inc. (ICG) uses PIKA Technologies' voice cards to enable the voice services in ICG's remote and mobile communications systems. PIKA Technologies, a manufacturer of hardware and software subsystems for developers of voice and fax solutions, has been building strong relationships with developers like ICG for greater than 15 years. PIKA digital- and analog-interface voice cards ensure the voice services found in communications systems used by general aviation aircraft (head of state and executive jets) and cruise ships. ICG's systems, Aerocom 3000 for aircrafts and MX-2000 for cruise ships, replicate the operation of a modern telephone company's central office in a remote or mobile setting. ICG selected PIKA Daytona MM PCI analog-interface cards for the voice services they enable. Depending on whether the crew or passengers are in the air or at sea, they require a variety of services, such as extension to extension calling, call on-hold, call transfer, and conferencing. Today's mobile passengers also need advanced services like auto fax recognition, call recording, and VoIP. "When we sized up the voice card vendors, we felt PIKA Technologies was the best choice for our mobile applications," said Armin Jabs, President, ICG. "When you look at their total offering - quality voice cards that deliver an abundance of voice services, flexible application programming interface (API), and most importantly, highly reliable technical support services - PIKA Technologies provided the most comprehensive and affordable solution to meet the current and future needs of our communications systems." "PIKA voice cards are a proven solution in mobile communications systems; hence, they're an excellent fit with ICG's applications," said Terry Atwood, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Care, PIKA Technologies. "We look forward to a long and successful relationship with ICG."
