NEC America, Inc. (NEC) (Irving, TX, U.S.), has announced that Internet Telephony magazine named NEC's NEAX(R) 2000 IPS-DMR communications platform a "Product of the Year" winner for 2003. NEC provides communications products, solutions, and services.

This is the second such award for the NEAX 2000 IPS-DMR, the remote component for the company’s NEAX 2000 IPS and NEAX IPS-DM mid-range Voice-Over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) systems, which was named "Product of the Year" by Communications Convergence magazine last December.

The NEAX IPS-DMR reportedly delivers a remote survivability function that automatically connects to the public network should the IP network connection with the central site be interrupted, essentially converting a remote office to a standalone system until the IP network is restored. Introduced in July 2003, NEC says its platform leverages the growing popularity of VoIP technologies to help make enterprise communications systems more resilient against component and land-area network (LAN) or wireless-area network (WAN) interruptions.

"With the NEAX 2000 IPS-DMR, NEC takes the lead in developing robust survivable IP telephony solutions," Greg Galitzine, editorial director of Internet Telephony, said in an NEC written statement.

Said Jay T. Krauser, assistant general manager, NEC’s Marketing and Sales Support Division: "We are honored by the continual industry recognition for NEC’s IP telephony solutions."

This "Product of the Year" Award honors the outstanding teams who develop and manufacture market-impressive telephony-based products and services and also seeks to educate its readership on the vast array of offerings in the telecommunications market.
