Xorcom XR0128 Analog Line Failover
In case of power outage or an Asterisk malfunction with the Xorcom analog line failover board, up to six analog PSTN lines are routed directly to predetermined analog extensions. The Xorcom XR0128 is a component board which can be integrated into an Astribank chassis.
Xorcom XR0128 Analog Line Failover Overview
While the benefits of an IP-PBX over a traditional PSTN-only phone system are indisputable, there is still one area where PSTN has the upper hand: during power failure the old-style telephone system continues to operate. Unlike an IP-PBX, it is not dependent on electricity to support placement and reception of calls. Therefore, for the benefit of those who want the advantages of an IP-PBX with the resiliency of PSTN PBX during power outages, Xorcom has designed a product for Asterisk®-based IP-PBX configurations that will allow automated fail-over of FXO lines to pre-defined FXS extensions in case of power failure. This functionality is comparable to Power Fail Transfer (PFT), which is used extensively in hospitality and other installations that rely heavily on large numbers of analog telephones. The simple addition of Xorcom's analog lines fail-over solution to the IP-PBX will allow analog extensions to continue to function directly via PSTN lines, even when disaster strikes! The solution is based on the award-winning Astribank, a USB-connected telephony interface device designed specifically for Asterisk-based IP-PBX.
Xorcom XR0128 Features:
Solution as an add on to Xorcom Astribanks consists of:
- A dedicated connectivity module
- Flat cables to connect the connectivity module to the main board
- A 15 foot cable with DB 25 connector (this module is installed where the Telco connection would be installed, so you cannot add both this and the telco connection option)
The connectivity module attaches to the system's existing main board, FXO module and FXS module. The cable is connected via a standard DB25 connector placed on the Astribank / IP-PBX rear panel.
