To meet these requirements, X2nSat selected TelcoBridges’ ProSBC, operating in a redundant VMware environment with an external TelcoBridges Hardware Transcoding accelerator, supporting up to 1,372 transcoding sessions. The equipment was installed in the Petaluma ground station, with a geo-redundant site planned for Las Cruces, NM.
In this configuration, the satellite link is always active between the remote subscriber sites and the satellite gateway, allowing instant activation upon failure of the subscriber’s terrestrial circuits.
Each customer is provisioned a SIP Trunk, each assigned to a network access point (NAP). Managing traffic between the remotes and the SIP trunks is accomplished using ProSBC’s Label Routing feature. This feature matches customer telephone numbers with the associated SIP trunk, bi-directionally routing calls. As part of the provisioning automation process, the ProSBC RESTful API will be used to make modifications to the Label Routing configuration, simplifying new customer provisioning.
“We have hundreds of network access points and are working toward automating configuration”, noted Venkata.
Knowing how to use advanced ProSBC features, including Label Routing and Transcoding, came from participating in TelcoBridges informational webinars as well as on-line ProSBC training. By completing the training, Venkata has secured his ProSBC TechTrained status, readying him for this and other network challenges.
