TERADYON, ISRAEL - February 11, 2003 B.O.S. - Better On-line Solutions' (Nasdaq: BOSC) affiliate Surf Communication Solutions (Surf) yesterday announced that Telrad Connegy, an international leader in the field of converged telecommunication systems for small to medium business enterprises, has selected Surf's SB-600MTM board and SMP software for its UNITe and Kochav VoIP-enabled PBX.
