ApplianX IP gateway
The ApplianX IP Gateway can be used in a variety of VoIP/TDM gateway scenarios and for TDM protocol conversions.
It is a ‘plug & play’ gateway that, regardless of deployment, can help reduce operational costs, extend the life of legacy, TDM-based equipment, and enable the delivery of services from IP-based applications and end points. ApplianX gateways are a vital component in any VoIP migration strategy. Uniquely, the ApplianX IP Gateway can support the interworking of Supplementary Services between SIP, QSIG and DPNSS.
The ApplianX IP Gateway offers a wide range of signalling protocols, including PRI/ISDN types, various CAS types, and PBX protocols, such as QSIG and DPNSS. The ApplianX IP Gateway provides dual-redundant traffic interfaces for SIP signalling and RTP voice streams, with support for G.711 and G.729AB codecs.

In this podcast, Ian Colville, ApplianX Product Manager, and David Grant, Professional Services Consultant, both of Aculab, give us an overview of Aculab, its products, support organization, and the ApplianX IP Gateway. Listen to the podcast here.
“At Cambridge University Hospitals we’re making the transition from a legacy estate of iSDX switches deployed in a relatively complex network to a Unify OpenScape SIP platform to offer the scale-ability and features required by a large critical service. A migration like this can be a testing time for a network, with calls and features traversing technologies of different eras. This is where devices such as Aculab’s ApplianX play their part, being the Babel fish in the middle. The ApplianX can do various TDM to VoIP conversions and is easy to configure; with responsive support and develop teams it has been an invaluable tool in helping us bridge the decades.”
