FPhone® CS200 Commercial-Business Solution
The FPhone CS-Series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of commercial business applications. So this series scaled from 200 up to 1000 concurrent calls, that might be sufficient for installations up to 10,000 devices.
Besides the high scalability particular emphasis on reliability and ease of integration into existing business applications has been set. Since 2011 fiber usually ships the most robust and powerful 1U Dell server (R610) with redundant power supplies and 2.5 "SAS drives. Because of its high performance this server can be used also in HA cluster configurations. Our external IP based 19" media gateways (E1, T1, S0, FXS, FXO, Fax, Modem, GSM) complets the optimal overall concept.
The fiberworks FPhone approach is the usage of two independent systems. The Asterisk™ core (1.8 x) runs as native system.
Asterisk is the world's leading software based telephony project. Contrary to other Asterisk implementations, that uses a GUI on top of the Asterisk Core, that might have negative influence in performance as well in stability.
Therefore fiberworks has developed its own middleware, which corresponds to a separate SQL-based application. Both systems run irrespectively of each other, and the advantages of each system could be so combined. The result is a maximum of performance and stability in combination with an easy to use SQL based GUI (admin + user) with an optimum on flexibility in terms of any kind of business integration.
The CS200 series was optimized on snom, Aastra and Yealink devices.
These devices can be automatic complete provisioned. We support LDAP, ADS and Exchange phone books. It is also possible to control all forwards and pickup groups central from the phone system. Every forward is done on the phone system, not by the phone device. FPhone also supports centralized Backups und Restores of all local setting of every single phone device. Particularly for large installations, this comprehensive package of functions reduces the administration effort to a minimum.
This suggests a bridge between traditional telephony and IP-telephony. In traditional telephony the intelligence is on the phone-system while IP-telephony uses intelligent devices. Fiberworks combines the advantages of both approaches.
Analog, Modem, Fax
Fiberworks also offers fully functional modem and fax ports. The SIP-protocol is not supporting an error free modem and fax transmissing. Consequently fiberworks provides a special solution for this type of devices that ensures proven reliability and trouble-free operation. This hardware-based solution coupled directly an analog port to E1. All our media gateways are available in various port sizes and can be installed at any place with a proper IP connection.
As a hybrid PBX-system the following connections are supported:
- 1 - 16 x E1 / PMX (or up to 4x T1)
- 1 - 48x S0 / ISDN
- 1 - 1024x Analoge Ports
- 1 - 48x GSM
- 1 - 16x Modem Ports (33.300 Baud)
- 1- 128x Fax Port
Our HA solutions (FPhone ES product line) is providing server redundancy (active-active) as well as redundancy for all media gateways including an automatic switchover for all outgoing E1 and S0 ports. In addition, it is possible to operate the admin and user interfaces including the database on separate server hardware. This is especially recommended for the centralized management of many sites.
All FPhone CS200 systems are offered as a functional ready-made and proven package of hardware, software and service.
