Survivability Services Customers served by a centralized, SIP-based IP Centrex server or branch offices of distributed enterprises, may face service discontinuities in case of a WAN failure. The integrated SAS (Stand Alone Survivability) feature of the Mediant 800 enables internal office communication between SIP clients (e.g. IP Phones), along with PSTN fallback, in case of disconnection from the centralized IP Centrex server or IP-PBX.
Value Added Services by an Open Platform for 3rd Party Applications
AudioCodes Mediant 800 MSBG extends the flexibility of the Multi-Service Business Gateway with the built-in Open Solution Network (OSN) server option (based on an Intel processor). Independent Software Vendors and OEM customers can utilize this integrated, general purpose server to host their own applications (e.g. IP-PBX, IVR, Call Center, Conferencing, and more). In addition, an advanced, on-board DSP Resource Farm enables the implementation of narrowband as well as wideband/ High Definition VoIP (HD VoIP) media processing services, such as announcements, recording, IVR, conferencing and transcoding, all controlled by standard protocols (e.g., SIP and MSCML). Utilizing AudioCodes dedicated DSP resources, enables a more robust and predictable voice performance, as compared to typical software implementations, based on general purpose CPU's.
