Building block for deploying high-density VoIP systems

The TrunkPack (TP)-260/SIP PCI VoIP Media Gateway Blade is a complete SIP-compliant “media gateway on a blade”, delivering a cost-effective solution in a convenient PCI form-factor. This unique stand-alone PCI media gateway operates independently and relies on the host PC only for its power. The TP-260/SIP communicates to applications via SIP using an onboard ethernet interface. Using a special standards-based approach eliminates host PC device drivers and operating system dependencies, seamlessly connecting existing PSTN-based systems to support VoIP.

The TP-260/SIP is an ideal solution for SIP trunking gateways and integrated media gateways for IP-PBXs and all-in-one communication servers. The blade is designed for enterprise applications or for smaller to medium PC-based systems. The TP-260/SIP provides up to 240 ports for voice, fax or data for VoIP media gateway applications. Employing SIP as a control protocol, the TP-260/SIP enables system integrators (SIs) short time-to-market and reliable cost-effective deployment of next-generation networks. The TP-260/SIP utilizes AudioCodes’ TPM-1100 PMC modules which are based on the VoIPerfect™ architecture, AudioCodes’ underlying core media gateway technology.

Deploy Best-of-Breed, Right-Sized Systems
The TP-260/SIP PCI VoIP Media Gateway Blade matches the density requirements for small-to-medium locations, while meeting network service providers’ demands for scalability. It scales from 1 to 8 E1/T1/J1 spans in a single PCI slot and provides an excellent gateway solution for enterprise applications as well as carrier locations.

Create Flexible Products and Services
The TP-260/SIP enables NEPs to immediately address opportunities that utilize a myriad of legacy circuit-switched infrastructure features and functionalities. The TP-260/SIP extends the flexibility of the media gateway family with additional deployment options – made available by providing smaller size and finer granularity of the digital trunk scalability options. The open platform of the TP-260/SIP offers NEPs the option to install this complete SIP controlled media gateway blade into their PC server, running the application to have a complete solution within the same server.
