REDCOM (News - Alert) is a provider of digital and IP-enabled telecommunications systems for carriers, utilities, emergency response and defense applications. Its products include public and private network systems, ISDN systems, legacy systems, IP/VoIP-based systems with an integrated SIP call manager, media gateway, media gateway controller, tactical systems, programmable platforms and test equipment.
REDCOM’s gateway solutions, the HDX and SLICE 2100, can be configured as a softswitch, emergency standalone or a media gateway. Thanks to the TRANSip architecture, four core elements (call control, media gateway, media gateway control and legacy support) are fully integrated providing service providers with the flexibility and the benefits of a fully interoperable network while retaining valuable network assets.
TRANSip, REDCOM’s IP telephony technology suite, offers a variety of next-generation network functions. TRANSip is available on the REDCOM High Density Exchange (HDX), SLICE 2100, SLICE IP and SLICE IP Micro platforms.
With TRANSip, REDCOM offers a robust, fully integrated VoIP solution that is easy to configure and install.
While other solutions rely on multiple boxes, TRANSip integrates key IP Multimedia Subsystem (News - Alert) (IMS) elements in one single platform, bringing call management functionality while offering call setup, control, termination and directory services for IP subscribers through industry standard architecture, Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) (SIP), for seamless interoperability.
There are no expensive server boxes, no separate gateway boxes and no separate VoIP software to load and configure.
REDCOM’s customers use TRANSip-enabled products as advanced Carrier-Class 4/5 softswitch systems. TRANSip supports all the features needed for a pure IP network, including IP Centrex, bandwidth management, conferencing and SIP trunking. Service Providers can set up SIP trunk calls, sharing common IP destinations and it can also handle different IP carrier destinations.
New advances in TRANSip that enhance interoperability and functionality have led to REDCOM being granted a United States patent, No. 8,239,829 B2, entitled, “User Co-Routine Interface for customizing SIP and SDP protocols.”
TRANSip has been a focal point in providing interoperability in many networks. TRANSip continues REDCOM's long tradition of maintaining compatibility with legacy systems using a variety of communications protocols including SIP and SDP. Patent #8,239,829 B2 discloses a method of efficiently integrating a scripting language with SIP/SDP processing to create an easily customizable interface between disparate communications appliances. Such appliances may then interwork despite bugs in their SIP/SDP implementations, or despite a lack of feature richness demanded of the network as a whole.
The network as a whole benefits from consistency of services, and the service provider has available a larger palette of products on which to offer these services.
