Catalyst Telecom®, a sales unit of ScanSource®, Inc. {NASDAQ: SCSC}, and value-added distributor of voice, video and data convergence solutions, has added hardware and software solutions from eTelemetry, a leader in extracting business information from network activity, to its line card. Through this relationship, resellers have access to the company’s complete line of innovative emergency response solutions. 

eTelemetry’s solutions enable users to pull real-time business information from the network, allowing businesses to identify VoIP phones automatically, as well as monitor bandwidth usage, sites visited and chat times by person and department. Catalyst Telecom will be distributing eTelemetry’s Locate911, which provides life-saving VoIP location information and alerts when 911 is dialed; LENS, which improves emergency response by sending immediate alerts to internal personnel when an emergency call is placed; Locate, which automates switch port and device identity for security and compliance; and Metron, which monitors and controls employee Internet activity and bandwidth use. 

“State regulations around the inclusion of E911 solutions are getting much more stringent in order to provide a safer environment for businesses. With eTelemetry’s solutions, resellers are able to offer cost-effective, easy-to-install solutions to their end-user customers so that they can effectively meet these new requirements,” said Mike Ferney, vice president of merchandising, Catalyst Telecom. “What’s more, these solutions are compliant with many of our vendor partners’ product offerings, including Avaya’s IP Office and enterprise solutions and Extreme Networks’ solutions.”
