If you’re working in the softswitch side of things, you should probably be aware of TRANSip,
REDCOM's (News - Alert) IP telephony technology suite. It’s a fully integrated VoIP offering that incorporates the benefits of TDM and IP technologies.
The product is available in the REDCOM High Density Exchange (HDX) and SLICE 2100 platforms, and provides a SIP Call Controller, Media Gateway (News - Alert), Media Gateway Controller, and a full range of related IP telephony capabilities and features.
Basically, TRANSip offers a simple, fully integrated VoIP option that’s relatively easy to configure and install. It supports traditional TDM transport and signaling interfaces and features, and using REDCOM's TRANSip-enabled HDX or SLICE 2100 you can support, within a single system, IP telephony to IP telephony connections, IP telephony to TDM connections, TDM to IP telephony connections and TDM to TDM connections.
The way company officials describe it; TRANSip offers “benefits of VoIP, while using your existing network elements.”
In June TMC’s (News - Alert) Stefanie Mosca wrote that REDCOM has been providing communication products such as softswitch offerings, gateways and additional advanced IP communication platforms for more than 30 years.
“REDCOM products provide customers with state-of-the-art public and private network systems, integrated TDM and VoIP systems, emergency response systems, programmable systems, and test equipment,” she wrote, adding that REDCOM “has rolled out new advances to its TRANSip IP Technology suite.”
TRANSip, which is integrated into almost all of REDCOM’s communication and softswitch products, enhances interoperability and functionality of its products. The company has been granted a United States Patent No. 7,920,831 titled Push-To-Talk and Push-To-Signal Signaling in an Internet Protocol Network.
