The IP kit supports open standards and is compatible with Zenitel AlphaCom, Zenitel IC-EDGE and iPBXs using SIP technology. When working in AlphaCom mode, the IP kit supports special services only available using the Zenitel CCoIP protocol, AlphaCom server. Examples of services are emergency broadcast with volume override, CCTV integration, call priority, and AlphaNet multisite networking and Zenitel event scripting.
The Zenitel IP Master Station Kit features the electronics board as used in Zenitel IP master stations. It is designed to produce custom IP stations to the highest specifications and for use in the harshest of environments.
The IP Master Station Kit provides up to 1.5 W audio output. If even higher audio output is required, an external power amplifier can be used. As a special function, the PCB can extract power from the Ethernet’s PoE circuit and give up to 6 W power to external units. This means that the PCB can power an external power amplifier using its own PoE.
The PCB has one relay output and three logical inputs. These outputs can for instance be used to control and open a door or PA interface. The operation of the outputs and inputs are programmable and controlled by the AlphaCom E exchange. The IP station PCB has an integrated managed data switch providing advanced networking and security features. The integrated switch provides support for:
To provide maximum availability the station comes with advanced supervision functions. The station line test will detect if there are any faults in the network or station electronics. In addition, the station supports tone test, testing the complete transmission path including microphone and speaker. The status of the stations is reported to AlphaWeb as well as to 3rd party management systems using SNMP, Syslog or OPC.
