Beacon Solutions Upgrades First Federal's Regional Telecommunications System LOUISVILLE, Ky., CINCINNATI and COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 14, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, Inc. (OTCBB:BEAC) today announced that it has completed a number of telecom upgrades at multiple locations for First Federal Savings Bank across the states of Indiana and Kentucky. Beacon Solutions was chosen as First Federal Saving Bank's telecommunications partner and was responsible for upgrades to over 16 locations in the region. These upgrades included transforming their telephone system to utilize VoIP connectivity. In the process, Beacon also routed all interoffice voice traffic to a private, internal network. Additionally, First Federal Savings Bank acquired Farmers State Bank, with four branches in the southern Indiana region, during the time these upgrades were being implemented. Beacon was then tasked to perform all of the low voltage wiring and install a new, fully integrated telecommunication system at these locations. "First Federal Savings Bank is a prominent, complete financial service provider. We worked hard to complete the upgrades quickly, efficiently and without disruption to their employees or customers throughout the region," commented Rick Mills, President of Beacon Solutions. "Technologically progressive organizations like First Federal recognize the economic and operational benefits of a unified technology platform throughout the enterprise," added Bruce Widener, CEO of Beacon Solutions. "By bringing together telecommunications services, infrastructure and application development, Beacon is positioned to help its clients capitalize upon the ongoing and rapid convergence of technologies."
