Local VoIP hardware distributor, Even Flow Distribution, has announced a distribution partnership agreement with Far South Networks, a South African telecommunications development company, to release a range of homegrown telephony products which compete effectively against international offerings in this space.

Far South Networks is a South African electronics design and development house, which provides network access and telephony solutions within the telecommunications sector. These solutions range from voice telephony, data and Voice over IP (VoIP) networks to consumer electronics devices.
“With over 40 years experience in the industry, Far South, is bringing to market a product range that will be well supported due to the real value that the products offer, and the benefits of local support and regionalised  product development,” says Adrian Bush, managing director of Even Flow.
The first product announced is the Far South Comma iTA, a line interface adapter targeted at open source Asterisk telephony market. The versatile product is available in various configurations including analogue and digital interfaces, incorporates hardware echo cancellation on all ports and is ICASA approved.
"As a telecommunications equipment vendor, it is crucial that Far South Networks take our product line to market through established distribution networks. It is for this reason that we have partnered with Even Flow, who has established itself as a reliable and consistent distributor of telephony products in South Africa, contributing a significant value-add through service and technical support," says Grant Broomhall, co-founder of Far South Networks.  
“Our existing product line contributes significant new technologies in the open telephony space, enabling telephony service providers to differentiate themselves in local and international markets” he adds.
A range of converged telecommunication products that are likely to shake up the local telecommunications industry will soon be available through Even Flow as part of the agreement.
“Far South Networks is at the forefront of telephony solutions in South Africa and, with products built to South African specifications, we anticipate that they will garner considerable interest from local businesses while still holding global appeal,” says Bush.
