Network solutions firm Osicom
Technologies, Inc. today introduced its “Any POP” Finance Program
targeted to new ISPs
(Internet Service Providers) at this week’s ISPCON Fall ’98.
The package is designed to help small- to medium-sized ISPs acquire
the remote-access products they need to grow their businesses.
Osicom said its ISP-focused financing simplifies the purchasing process for
the IQX-200 and other network access applications, such as its ROUTERmate
family of products.
The IQX-200 is designed to consolidate V.90 dial-in, leased lines, Frame
Relay and ISDN to provide flexible service provisioning to corporate and
consumer subscribers. With on-board modems, integral CSU/DSUs and a 10/100
LAN adapter standard, the IQX-200 can either be deployed into new service
areas (Remote POP in a Box) or be used as a cost-effective expansion to the
site where the Web, mail and other data servers are located (POP Extender).
“The exponential growth in Internet usage demands that our ISP customers
focus their resources on serving a fast-growing customer base,” said Eric
Kraieski, vice president of channel sales and marketing at Osicom.
“Therefore, we want to make it easy for those customers to get the
equipment they need without locking up precious resources. . . . With our
‘Any POP’ leasing we’ve made it easier for ISPs to get the best value for
Customers can purchase the competitively priced IQX-200 RAS at $215 per
port, or lease for under $6 per port per month for ISPs with rated credit
and under $9 for any ISP, the company stated.
