Since 1972 TEO Technologies has been developing leading-edge communications technology from the days of analog, through ISDN and VoIP. This track record continued with their development of the very first Unified Communications (UC) system built from the ground up. It was the first platform to support 100% interoperable multi-nodal UC systems with zero degradation of services in the event of network interruptions, as well as the first solution to support cloud, premises, hybrid, and convertible deployments on a singular codebase. In addition to their many UC accomplishments, they have racked up a series of impressive achievements in the defense and intelligence markets. Most recently this has included the first Department of Defense Assured Services SIP certified endpoint, and the first TSG-6 VoIP endpoints. While TEO Tech are extremely innovative (like a startup), they are by no means the new kid on the block. TEO knows what works, they know what doesn’t, and they know what it takes to help you win.
