Introducing the SN4400 - The Cost Effective IPChannel Bank

by Pranav Desai               

A channel bank converts a group of FXS or FXO interfaces to higher speed interfaces. When you need to connect multiple analog/ legacy devices like phones and faxes like those found in a MTU/MDU (Multi Tenant Unit/ Multi Dwelling Unit) facility, to a VoIP network, a generic Multiport FXS/FXO gateway is just not good enough. You need a high  port density channel bank solution which not only aggregates your legacy analog lines but also allows you configurable IP Routing and Quality of Service based on your specific requirements.

Here are some of the major advantages of using a SN4400 IPChannel bank

- Enjoy the benefits of using a full fledged IPChannel Bank solution at the costs associated with that of a CPE type device.
- Migrate your existing legacy infrastructure to VoIP based network thus enjoying higher return on your investment
- Offers port densities in granular steps of 12, 16, 24 and 32 thus providing you with the solution that best fits your   requirement and thus providing the best value in accordance with your deployment requirements.
- Leverage your VoIP offerings with value added services using the configurable IP Routing and Quality of Service functions built in
- The SmartNode 4400 IP Channel bank is your one stop solution for both Carriers and Enterprises who are looking to deploy a cost effective IPChannel Bank based solution.
For Service Providers:
SN4400 can be used to connect/ migrate legacy MTU/ MDU installation to high value and feature rich VoIP based netw
For Enterprises:
FXS channel banks for Hotels, call-centers or multi-line Fax gateway for office buildings.

      The best part about using the SN4400 series is the ease of configuration for any network deployment scenario that it offers. As it is based on SmartWare, configuration is very intuitive and uses the familiar Industry standard CLI interface. This CLI interface is highly extendible and grants the user complete control over how they want their SmartNode to perform.

Combine this with additional features like IP routing, VPN/Security, and Quality of Service features built in, the SN4400 series leverages low-cost IP services with packet-voice for complete branch office voice and data connectivity.

Enterprise FXS concentration and extension over IP and T1/E1:

- This provides operators and enterprise network administrators with a simple and cost effective option to provide a large number of FXS ports in a remote location

        The granularity of port selection brings the best return on investment based upon the deployment requirements
