Para Systems Offers Minuteman Power Protection As Member Of Mitel Solutions Alliance

Para Systems, manufacturer of the comprehensive line of Minuteman branded power protection solutions, has announced it has joined the Mitel Solutions Alliance (MSA), a comprehensive program that enables a wide range of third-party partners to create products and services that integrate with Mitel’s core business communications portfolio. As a new member, and the only power protection solution provider in MSA, Para Systems is offering a customized version of its online tool, to assist distributors, resellers and end users in selecting the right Minuteman power protection solution that best fits Mitel’s product offerings.

“We have had a strong relationship with Mitel over the years, and we are excited about joining MSA,” said Rod Pullen, president of Para Systems. “Our Minuteman brand has become synonymous with power protection products designed for business communications, especially in the long battery back-up times required for keeping the business lifeline – which is the telecommunications system - up and running.”

Power protection is a vital voice and video communication system component that provides a return on investment in various ways, ranging from protecting equipment from damaging power events such as spikes and surges, to maintaining productivity by providing a bridge across other common power occurrences such as brownouts and blackouts. In addition, the battery back-up function maintains up-time through extended power outages so that businesses do not lose their line of communication to their customers.

“MSA enables us to build alliances with those companies who share and complement our market vision and can help us implement it rapidly and successfully,” said David Lowenstein, MSA director of business development. “We welcome Para Systems and its Minuteman brand of power protection solutions into the program, and look forward to incorporating their products into Mitel's global ecosystem of interoperable solutions.”
