REDCOM’s High Density Exchange (HDX) is a powerful telecommunications system designed for a wide variety of switching applications ranging from analog to digital to IP communications. The HDX shares a common approach and a common hardware set with other REDCOM switching products. This hardware set is called the Modular Switching Unit, or MSU.
One or more MSUs comprise a complete system. Though all MSUs operate together as a single system, each is capable of operating independently. Thus, the loss of a single (or even multiple) MSU elements does not constitute a total failure of the system. All remaining MSUs will continue to operate and communicate normally. This distributed architecture is one of the “secrets” behind REDCOM’s reliable telecom systems.
In order to equip your existing HDX system with TRANSip capability, two actions need to be performed (assuming the HDX has V3.0 software or higher):
Additional features like T.38 and V.150.1 may be enabled based on the customer needs. Once the desired features are turned on, your HDX system is powered by TRANSip.
The MSU architecture of REDCOM's HDX allows the addition of more MSC boards or even shelves based on application requirements. Depending on selected configuration and traffic, each MSC board can take up to 128 timeslots that will be used for VoIP conversions as well as MoIP, FoIP, customized tones for SIP phones and other features. More MSC boards can be added to the system if more capacity is required.
TRANSip HDX’s Controller board acts as a call controller and a media gateway controller. All of the call translator database information is stored in the Controller board and the call processing is handled with this board as well. The Controller board communicates directly with the MSC board to allow TDM to IP conversions.
The MSC board provides IP to TDM conversions (media gateway functionality) as well as helping the controller to keep track of the IP call records. This fully integrated relationship between the controller and the MSC board allows enhanced features like:
REDCOM’s HDX with TRANSip is a true all-in-one converged communications platform. While other solutions rely on multiple boxes, REDCOM’s HDX with TRANSip is able to offer all the same capabilities in a much smaller footprint. With the HDX, there are no expensive server boxes, no separate gateway boxes, and no separate VoIP software to load and configure.
