Like the Dterm® IP Gateway, the Dterm IP Branch utilizes Remote Voice Protocol
(RVP)™ and Remote Voice Protocol over IP (RVPoIP)™ to convert voice
and NEAX® or Electra Elite® signaling into packets, which can be sent
and received through a network connection.
The Dterm IP Branch is a rack-mountable (or desktop) device that connects to
the corporate network over packet (i.e. xDSL and Cable) or traditional circuit
switched networks including T1 (TDM), Fractional T1, ISDN or Frame Relay circuits
through an external network device. Using a third-party network termination
device (e.g. routers, xDSL modem, cable modem, ISDN terminal adapters, CSU/DSUs,
multiplexers, FRADs, etc.) allows the Dterm IP Branch to perform in a wide variety
of network environments.
The Dterm IP Branch provides a choice of voice compression algorithms, including
G.729A, G.726, as well as G.711. By using advanced voice compression algorithms,
the Dterm IP Branch minimizes network bandwidth requirements while ensuring
high voice quality.
The use of synchronous or asynchronous data protocols allow the Dterm IP Branch
to interface with a wide variety of network termination equipment in order to
maximize the user's connectivity options. In addition, remote administration
access is provided for the Dterm IP Branch units to maximize ease-of-use and
manageability for the system administrator.
