Xorcom Astribank XR0043 - 8 BRI + 16 FXS Ports - USB Asterisk Ready

Product Description

Astribank is a USB channel bank especially designed for Asterisk Open Source PBX systems. Connecting via USB 2.0 it eliminates the need for intermediating PCI used in other channel banks. Astribank offers a wide variety of FXS, FXO, BRI ISDN and I/O ports combinations. Multiple Astribank units may be connected to a single Asterisk server using different USB 2.0 ports, USB 2.0 hub or USB 2.0 PCI card. Astribank is the leading solution in high density Asterisk systems, as in hotels, motels, apartment buildings etc.

Astribank is a versatile and powerful channel bank that was specifically designed for the Asterisk IP-PBX. Astribank supports all the common telephony lines and trunks: FXS, FXO, BRI, PRI and R2. The Astribank driver is a part of the standard Asterisk distribution. With Xorcom Rapid Live CD, a fully operational Asterisk server with preconfigured FXS, FXO, BRI, PRI and R2 ports can be up and working in less than 3 minutes!

The USB 2.0 interface supplied with the Astribank server guarantees a reliable, extremely high bandwidth, hotpluggable solution that is not dependent on a PRI PCI card. The USB 2.0 plug-and-play connection can support, theoretically, over 3,000 concurrent calls on a single USB 2.0 port. The reliable, industry-standard USB connection eliminates the costly, cumbersome PRI cards that are needed for standard channel bank support, and adds unique features such as reliable fax support, transparent synchronization between Astribank units, an auxiliary system interface, and more.

Astribank driver is an official part of Zaptel since release 1.2.4 (Feb. 2006) making Astribank integral with any standard Asterisk systems. Today Astribank is tested with Debian, CentOS 5 CentOS 4 and it has packages for Trixbox, Elastix and Druid Asterisk distribution.

Astribank's modular architecture is designed to support all standard telephony interfaces: FXS, FXO, ISDN-BRI, ISDN- E1/T1 PRI, and E1 R2.

Astribank Chassis
Each 19" 1U rack-mountable Astribank chassis accommodates up to four modules. Multiple Astribank units may be connected to a single Asterisk IP-PBX using different USB 2.0 ports, a USB 2.0 hub or a USB 2.0 PCI card.

Available Modules:
FXS (8 ports) with I/O ports
FXO (8 ports)
BRI (2 ports, 4 ports, and 8 ports)
PRI (1 port, 2 ports, and 4 ports)
R2 (1 port, 2 ports, and 4 ports)
FXS+FXO (6 ports and 2 ports, respectively)
-This versatile 8-port model is suitable for cost-effective small installations, training and demonstration purposes.

Telecom Connector Option (TCO)
This option is available in units with 24 or more FXS ports. To streamline installation of multi-port systems, the TCO unites all FXS ports on the Astribank unit into a single telecom connector on the real panel. All front panel indicators and RJ11 connectors remain active and enable easy monitoring and maintenance. A cable for connecting the telecom connector to the patch-panel is included.

Input/Output (I/O) Ports
Analog units with FXS modules support I/O ports. The two output ports enable activation/deactivation of peripheral devices by dialing an extension number. A popular example of output port usage is to open a door by dialing an extension. The four input ports create an off-hook event in Asterisk. The dial plan can be configured to use this function to dial an extension, play a message, send an email, activate another device using the output ports, etc. Examples of possible input port usage include forwarding a call to specific numbers, and playing a pre-recorded message if the fire/burglar alarm goes off.
