There are over 10,000 NetPilot units installed and bringing VARs recurring revenue. They provide Internet access and e-mail facilities for every PC on a network, with a Checkpoint-approved firewall, IPSec-based VPN capabilities, and a number of other security features.
NetPilot appliances are Linux-based all-in-one, plug-and-play devices based on open source software for the core applications.
Bob Jones (pictured below), managing director of Equiinet, says: "We are integrating fully with the new BT self-install DSL service. BT's recent introduction of self-install DSL kits should help the ADSL roll-out to gather momentum from January 2002 onwards, and it's our intention to keep our customers at the cutting edge of transmission technologies by making NetPilot compatible with this service."
