Innovative Product Development Results in Pulver Award for Commetrex

12/8/2003 - For a second consecutive year, Commetrex has been awarded the pulver100 award by, Inc. for its innovative product development. The pulver100 award was established by entrepreneur Jeff Pulver to recognize up-and-coming privately held companies in the telecom sector. Companies chosen for this award represent the future of the communications ecosystem. According to Pulver, "The companies prospering in the new environment have followed the computer and networking industry model with open interfaces, connectivity decoupled from services, and software decoupled from hardware."

"Commetrex is a member of the pulver100 because of the critical role the Company plays in helping the network-equipment manufacturer develop the equipment needed to deliver purple minutes", noted Jeff Pulver, Founder of

Purple minutes are defined by Pulver as IP-based enhanced services in the form of cool killer apps created by telecom companies. This is in contrast to black and white minutes that represent standard PSTN use. Pulver takes note of companies that are doing things that were never before practical and/or possible without the use of IP.

Mike Coffee, CEO of Commetrex, adds: "Commetrex’ strategy has always been to follow the computer and networking industry's model of a tightly coupled business ecosystem. So we are pleased to see the folks at Pulver include Commetrex in this impressive group of companies."
