For organisations with the specialist skills to add open standard interface boards (analogue or digital) to industry standard servers to create custom solutions, TeleSpeak has both a deep understanding of these technologies and is authorised to supply from leading Asterisk vendor, Digium. Well be happy to discuss your project in confidence to offer comprehensive advice.
When the solution you are creating needs to work with legacy PSTN analogue connections (FXO) or analogue handsets that require an analogue station connection (FXS), or possibly both of these, TeleSpeak can advise on the best options for you. Also, ahead of end customers migrating their solutions to ‘pure’ SIP connectivity, we still see a steady demand for ISDN with both basic rate interfaces (BRI) that support 2 concurrent calls and primary rate interfaces (PRI) that support up to 30 channels of voice.
It is useful to be aware that there are also hybrid circuit boards that support 8 Ports of ISDN BRI as well as analogue and we call this a hybrid solution. The Digium unit has both ISDN and analogue in a single half-depth PCI or PCI-Express card slot. The Hx8 Series interface cards add a combination of EuroISDN BRI and analogue capability to your Asterisk solutions. Hx8 cards support up to eight connections, including analogue line (FXO) interfaces, analogue station (FXS) interfaces, and digital ISDN BRI interfaces. Additionally, there are voice compression circuit board options that will help reduce the bandwidth required for a number of the most common CODECs (Coder / Decoder).
These interface boards are examples from the Digium range; please contact us for a full set of options to suit your project.
