Designed to provide maximum network performance and reliability in low-bandwidthenvironments, the NetPerformer reduces network infrastructure costs and simplifies WAN connectivity for mission-critical applications. The NetPerformer’s voice and data compression technology, prioritization and multiplexing capabilities and the ability to route all traffic over a highly efficient cell-relay based protocol, make it the product of choice for converged voice and data applications over satellite. The NetPerformer provides a safe migration path from legacy TDM or Frame Relay networks to IP-centric networks. It includes support for the latest VoIP (SIP) standards and robust IP/Ethernet QoS, with eight classes of service and 16 levels of prioritization to ensure that mission-critical applications always receive sufficient bandwidth. In addition, specialty features are available for handling the particulars of radar, voice push-to-talk (PTT) and VHF voice applications common to Air Traffic Control and military networks.
Efficient and Reliable PTT Communication:
High quality transmission of Push-to-talk (PTT) interface provides complete transparency and supports a variety of analog and digital VHF systems deployed today. The signaling information can be handled either in-band, as FSK tones, out-of-band through a V24 serial interface, or directly processed from the E&M lead signals. Support of PTT is essential in civil or military air traffic and coastal authorities, and other industries.
Switched (any-to-any) Voice Support:
Supporting both analog and digital interfaces with standard protocols (ISDN, QSIG, MFCR2, DTMF), NetPerformer allows interconnection to any PABX or PSTN. While supporting both VoIP and VoFR with integral voice routing plans, NetPerformer allows calls to be placed from anywhere in the network to any other site.
Supporting new applications and traffic growth: NetPerformer‘s solution has the right built-in feature set to address new IP-based applications. Featuring a state-of-the-art IP routing protocol suite (including NAT, dynamic and static virtual routing groups and IP tunneling), the NetPerformer platform guarantees IP data transport.
In addition to supporting industry standard recognized protocols such as X25, Frame Relay, HDLC and PPP, the NetPerformer also support, with QoS, serial bit transparent interface over packetized network. This is particularly effective when dealing with low speed links which are particularly delay sensitive.
NetPerformer offers 1+1 system redundancy using a standard SNMP controlled A/B switch. The backup system can take over primary system(s) in the event that a system or bearer interface(s) should fail.
