Teleos Communications - AccessSwitch

ISDN switching systems have been in use since the mid-1980's. Due to the growing demand for small, inexpensive ISDN switch type systems, Teleos Teleos - Model 20, 60 and 200 Communications Inc. developed the popular AccessSwitch (ISDN access switch) product line. Their ISDN switch family included the Model 20, Model 60 and Model 200. These quality products offered Primary and Basic Rate ISDN in addition to E1 and T1 signaling. Further, they offer syncronous interfaces for high-speed bandwidth allocation to routers and video conferencing systems over private networks.

In 1996 Madge Networks, N.V. a manufacturer of high quality Token Ring LAN products acquired Teleos Communications. In this endeavor, Madge extended its product line from LAN to WAN by merging their LAN vision with the AccessSwitch products. Madge then began an ambitious effort to merge LAN and WAN technologies at the desktop by developing products that could serve ATM to the individual client from a common platform. When ATM faded from focus as a technology that would be deployed to user's desktops, Madge lessened its focus on LAN to WAN technologies and later spun off the AccessSwitch product line.
