Ceros 1U for Rhino PCI and PCI Express Cards

The Ceros chassis was designed with VARs in mind. Ceros provides instant credibility to your Value Added Reseller (VAR) product line, the chassis comes with no external markings or silk screening and is easily customized by editing a simple XML file, you can also include a company logo in BMP format. The graphic and text in the file is displayed on the LCD at all times for your customers to visually identify your own branded PBX product. Units can also be shipped in two cartons -- an outside carton that can be discarded so that a pristine, inside carton can be cleanly shipped to your end customer.
