About us

NovaTec | Expert in ISDN + VoIP

NovaTec Kommunikationstechnik GmbH was founded in 1990 by Michael Keyhani and Horst Michaelis*. Built on long years of experience in telecommunications practical detail solutions for other manufactures were realised in the beginning.

During the company’s growth the development of target-group-specific plug & play solutions were added to the portfolio. By now the range of products was expanded and also includes telecommunication systems, GSM gateways and VoIP media gateways.

Besides product development the consultancy and training are in focus of our operations. The production of small series and prototypes also belong to the in-house service.

The quality management system ISO 9001 is not only fulfilled but consequently implemented in all company areas. Our products are tested and inspected by independent certificate authorities.

A thorough check of all systems and careful tests before delivery are granted.
