Allied Telesis (News - Alert) has announced a new member on its team, John Krieger, director of connectivity solutions.
A veteran of the industry, Krieger is an expert in client computing for workstations, thin clients and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) phones, especially where the use of fiber Ethernet is the most.
Allied Telesis is a provider of networking infrastructure and flexible, interoperable network solutions. It offers reliable video, voice and data network solutions to clients in multiple markets including government, healthcare, defense, education, retail, hospitality and network service providers.
Krieger noted that in today’s federal market, it is becoming ever more important to offer dynamic, cost-saving, secure and energy-friendly technologies to the customers. He believes that by supporting customers “green” initiatives and providing the latest “cutting-edge” solutions for client computing and VoIP, the company is playing a key role in the design efforts of the customers.
“We bring unique solutions that simply are not offered anywhere else in the world today,” Krieger said.
At a trade event, Twin (News - Alert) Cities based Krieger is expected to present the company’s unique network solutions for client computing, bridging VoIP traffic through fiber NIC cards, media converter switches. In addition, he is also expected to demonstrate an exclusive solution to turn a client workstation into a switch and forward IP traffic via a computer’s own RJ45 port.
According to the company officials, with the latest Allied Telesis PoE Network Interface Cards, it’s now possible for a PC to power a VoIP phone or other traditional copper Powered Device (PD) over a secure fiber network.
Last year in October, the company unveiled the SwitchBlade x8112 intelligent Layer 3+ core networking chassis.
