ICS Advent was recognized by TMC as follows:
Internet Telephony magazine´s 2000 Product of the Year - The publication selected ICS Advent´s Omnix family of PC-based industrial computing platforms for this honor, citing innovation in product design and manufacturing that has made a positive impact on the convergence of voice and data. The award winners were selected by the editors of Internet Telephony magazine and the engineers of TMC Labs.
Internet Telephony Conference & EXPO Miami 2001 Best of Show winner - The conference named ICS Advent as one of its Best of Show winners for showmanship and recognized the Omnix family as a reflection of the company´s contributions to and leadership position in the Internet Telephony industry. Editors from Internet Telephony and Communications SolutionsTM magazines, who met with exhibitors and tried out new products, selected the winners.
"We are excited that our Omnix family continues to garner awards," said Jim Jameson, president and CEO of ICS Advent. "These awards are excellent industry recognition that proves that ICS Advent has been successful in delivering ground-breaking products, solutions and services, and we are committed to continuing to do so."
Introduced in July 2000, Omnix is a family of PC-based industrial computing platforms consisting of seven new systems that can be configured as rack-mounted or stand-alone with a full range of standard and option sub-systems and components. These systems are designed for rapid configuration and rapid delivery, backed with the company´s renowned 24x7 customer support. The family was conceived and developed from the ground up to deliver an optimal environment for hosting the most demanding requirements for industrial automation, telecommunications, Internet services, process control, medical instrumentation and other business-critical applications
Another key Omnix innovation is the use of a unique modular backplane design, which can be cost-effectively tailored to provide almost any combination of ISA and PCI plug-in slots. Unlike conventional fixed-configuration backplanes, Omnix uses six basic building-block backplane segments that allow customers to quickly define their own optimized backplane designs.
Omnix is the result of a strategic ICS Advent initiative to achieve increased system flexibility while offering the industry´s fastest delivery schedules and most responsive customer support. The new Omnix suite complements the company´s existing platform offerings, which include low cost, single board computers, chassis and rack-mount systems; custom systems co-created with OEM, end user and systems integration partners; and completely integrated hardware/ software solutions supporting open communications systems (OCS) standards.
