Sangoma built its
business by designing hardware that simply works, the first time. We
have taken the time to ensure our BRI solution delivers.
The Sangoma A500 S/T BRI Interface Card delivers superior audio quality
and scalability. Expand from two to twenty-four ports of BRI with
optional Octasic™ Telco-grade, hardware echo cancellation. A single PCI
or PCI Express slot hosts the connection for up to 24 ports and ensures
common synchronous clocking for all channels with no signaling issues.
The card is 100% software configurable. Finally, a BRI card that
upholds Sangoma's high standards of quality in engineering and untiring
Sangoma A500 -
The A500 consists of a Remora™ BRI daughterboard mounted on the AFT PCI
card. The Remora™ BRI card has three sockets, each of which can accept
an S/T BRI module. One S/T BRI module has two S/T four wire interfaces,
which support TE or NT modes of operation. Changing modes requires no
jumpers - simply invert the module.
Up to three additional Remora™ daughterboards can be mounted in empty
slot positions beside the A500 assembly. These are connected to the
A500 by a special backplane bus connector.
