Need To Provide Fixed Telephony?
Organizations of mission critical fixed telecommunications services, such as railway, airports, military, police and fire service, are being asked to modernize their infrastructure to meet growing safety and security requirements. The level of sophistication required for these upgrades is forcing them to overhaul their telecommunication infrastructure to solutions solely based on IP (SIP). The challenge for these large organizations is that much of their infrastructure is based on legacy TDM, which is not directly compatible with the IP world.
During the migration period, they need a mechanism which allows for legacy TDM-to-IP conversion in order to be able to integrate these modern IP solutions with their existing infrastructure. Sangoma’s Vega VoIP gateway and TDM telephony card products provide large organizations with robust TDM-to-IP solutions, saving them money by keeping their existing legacy infrastructure in place.
A very typical mechanism to integrate IP-based solution(s) with legacy TDM equipment is using a VoIP gateway. These appliances provide seamless communication across dispersed technologies, such as analog & IP, and simply requires you to plug cables into an appliance. However, in environments which provide mission critical fixed telecommunications services, there are some challenges:
Nearby equipment can cause Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) which affect the performance of a VoIP gateway, causing degraded voice communication.
Endpoint devices which need to connect to the gateway are quite some distance away and run over poor lines. Example: track-side analog phones at railways, or emergency phones alongside industrial sites.
Sophisticated gateways may be required to convert legacy TDM to customized communication, allowing for integration with proprietary software applications.
Need a Robust Gateway Solution?
For organizations which have analog phones out in the field, used by workers and the public, or dedicated alarm systems, a high-performance analog-to-SIP VoIP gateway is the ideal solution. Analog phones and devices would be connected to the gateway via the onboard analog ports. An Ethernet cable connected to the LAN port would allow these two disparate telecommunication systems to work together, which would otherwise be incompatible.
Sangoma Vega VoIP gateways connect legacy infrastructure to IP-based systems. The Vega 3000 series can connect up to 50 analog phones up to 12 km in a single chassis. These gateways are tuned to handle poor line conditions and interference which can be caused by EMI disturbance. + Discover our Vega analog gateways.
