Implementing integrated communications frequently means considering how new standards and connection technologies will fit with existing ones. With SIP (session initiation protocol), SwyxWare supports the standard for transferring voice data via an IP network. In order to achieve the widest selection of connection technology options as possible, SwyxConnect delivers a number of different communication options:
- Establishing a connection with the public ISDN telephone network – if you are not using the SIP system connection of a service provider for termination
- Running SwyxWare virtualized with an external ISDN gateway
- Connecting local and branch offices with the central office in a cost efficient manner via the local ISDN exchange line
- Supporting migration scenarios with existing ISDN telephone systems
- Operating analogue terminal devices, such as telephones or fax machines, in connection with SwyxWare
Swyx ISDN cards
Swyx ISDN cards facilitate effective and cost-efficient connection to the ISDN network in order to support external telephone conversations via the public telephone network. They are integrated directly into a server PC and offer the best possible integration with SwyxWare Management, as they can be administered directly via the Microsoft Management Console.
As an external SIP/ISDN gateway, SwyxConnect 6xxx is ideal for implementation in a virtualised SwyxWare environment where ISDN connections are used.
A further area of application for SwyxConnect 6xxx is quick connection of local and branch offices with an additional failsafe (stand alone survivability, SAS) via the ISDN network in the event that there is no connection to the central server available. Migration scenarios with existing ISDN telephone systems can also be realised seamlessly and free of lengthy downtimes using SwyxConnect 6xxx.
SwyxConnect 17xx can be used as an innovative branch office solution that can be used to connect smaller branch or local offices to a central SwyxWare installation in a cost-efficient manner. Communication between the branch offices and the main administration is realised via a secure VPN connection, which is established via broadband.
In the event that the VPN connection unexpectedly drops, SwyxConnect 17xx acts as a failsafe via a connection that uses the public ISDN telephone network. This connection is maintained until the primary VPN broadband network is available again. This ensures that your customers and suppliers can still reach you even if the external network infrastructure is experiencing downtime.
Swyx IP-a/b adapters are used when analogue terminal devices have to be effortlessly integrated into a SwyxWare environment. For example, analogue telephones, fax machines or even door entry systems can be integrated into the existing communications infrastructure, thereby protecting investments that have already been made.
