How to connect traditional telephony ports to Asterisk PBX phone systems?
Connecting traditional telephony ports such as analog trunks and analog extensions (FXO and FXS) and/or digital trunks and digital extensions (PRI/BRI) to Asterisk based systems may be achieved using different technologies. Xorcom Astribank solution is a USB gateway that provides a versatile and flexible way to connect telephony ports to Asterisk IP PBX systems using Xorcom’s unique XPP technology.
Astribank is fully native within Asterisk based systems and unlike VoIP gateways, it is managed directly via the Asterisk PBX and not as a separate entity, and is completely LAN-independent. Astribank also allows for features that are not supported in PCI cards and channel banks, such as high-availability and hot-swap, which significantly increases the reliability of the VoIP PBX system.
