RedFone Communications Introduces Dual T1 Version of their popular foneBridge T1 Interface for Asterisk

May 5, 2006 by Garrett Smith

RedFone Communications has released a new, dual T1 version of their popular foneBridge solid-state T1 interface for use with Asterisk Open Source PBX.

foneBRIDGE is a T1 or E1/PRI-to-Ethernet Bridge. It is an integrated black-box “appliance” designed to streamline installation and enable redundant design of Asterisk based VoIP systems. Designing, building, and installing an Asterisk system has never been this easy!

foneBRIDGE eliminates the need to install proprietary TDM (PRI/T1) hardware cards in approved/compatible server configurations. Instead, foneBRIDGE terminates T1/E1 and/or PRI lines on the trunk side and provides direct Ethernet communication to a network of Asterisk servers using native Asterisk TDMoE formats and utilities.

foneBRIDGE provides an economical means of buliding and maintaining a redundant Asterisk solution. Instead of purchasing a TDM board for each redundant server, multiple redundant servers can share a single foneBRIDGE. If the foneBRIDGE itself fails, replacing it is far simpler that replacing a TDM card in an active server.
