announces the availability of the TE820 Octal-Span digital card. This new high-density solution compliments Digium’s existing broad suite of telephony card offerings designed specifically for Asterisk-based communications systems. The TE820 enables Asterisk integrators and OEMs to build large scale telephony deployments that are both high performance and cost-effective.
Asterisk is the most widely used open source software for creating business phone systems and other communications applications. The combination of Digium hardware and Asterisk software provides a cost-effective platform for building numerous communications solutions, from PBX systems and VoIP gateways to IVR servers, call centers and complete unified communications suites. The TE820 supports up to 192 channels (in T1/J1 mode) or 240 channels (in E1 mode) and is available with or without hardware echo cancellation.
The TE820 card supports industry standard telephony protocols, including multiple variants of Primary Rate ISDN. Each span can be configured as either CPE or network for optimal flexibility. The optional VPMOCT256 hardware echo cancellation module, based on the industry-leading Octasic chipset, offloads the task of echo cancellation from the CPU, increasing overall system performance and call quality.
The Octal-Span digital card will be available on November 18, 2011 from Digium and Digium partners.
