  • XOP Networks deploys its IP based Hoot and Holler Conference Bridge at a Large Airline

    XOP Networks, Inc., a manufacturer of advanced conference bridges, now offers IP based Hoot and Holler conferencing capability.

    Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 06, 2015

    XOP Networks, Inc., a manufacturer of advanced conference bridges now offers IP based Hoot and Holler conference bridges. These bridges have proven interoperability with a number of Push to Talk (PTT) four wire FXS to SIP gateways, Turrets, Squawk boxes and a variety of SIP based Hoot and Holler end devices.

    Hoot and holler networks provide “always on” multiuser conferences without requiring users to dial into a conference. Such conferences are routinely used by brokerages, news agencies, publishers, weather bureaus, Satellite Launch operators, transportation providers, power plant operators and nationwide salvage yard organizations.

    Hoot and holler networks are traditionally deployed using point-to-point leased lines that terminate into a TDM based hoot and holler conference bridge that is hosted either by the customer or by the PSTN carrier.

    Large corporations have been implementing their own private data networks. These networks typically touch all physical locations that are involved in hoot-n-holler conferencing as well. Hence, a more cost effective approach for implementing the hoot network is to convert the traditional 4 wire devices (PTT Radios, Phones, Squawk boxes etc.) into SIP end points with the help of media gateways and then connect the resulting voice paths to an IP based Hoot-n-Holler conference bridge over the data network.

    Our IP based Hoot-n-Holler conference bridge is a robust Linux based platform that is designed to fulfill the ‘always on’ audio conferencing needs of large mission critical networks

    The benefits of using the IP based Hoot and Holler network approach are:

    • Eliminate the need for expensive leased lines
    • Improve hoot and holler network manageability
    • PSTN connectivity to H-n-H network
    • Reduce the time to troubleshoot a problem from hours to minutes
    • Pave way for adding native SIP based Hoot-n-Holler end devices going forward

    One of the largest airlines in the world recently deployed XOP Networks’ IP based Hoot-n-Holler conference bridges. Two conference bridges are deployed in Hot/Standby high availability configuration at two separate geographical locations thereby ensuring 99.999% availability.

    “Our IP based Hoot-n-Holler conference bridge is a robust Linux based platform that is designed to fulfill the ‘always on’ audio conferencing needs of large mission critical networks. It supports both legacy TDM and VoIP/SIP interfaces thus allowing our customers to migrate their hoot-n-holler networks towards packet based networking at their own pace,” said Sudhir Gupta, CEO of XOP Networks.

    “Our recent success in deploying IP based Hoot and Holler network at the large airline customer proves the validity of the business case. Our customer now has a modern, robust SIP based conference bridge that paid for itself in less than 4 months,” added Doug Jacobs, VP of Sales, XOP Networks.

    Telcom & Data, a leader in teleconferencing products, is pleased to introduce the Revolabs FLX conference phone. The Revolabs FLX delivers superior versatility and wireless capabilities. The difficulty with all corded and wireless tabletop conference phones is that its microphones and speakers are fixed to the unit. This is where the Revoloabs FLX is different.

    The FLX microphones, speaker, and wireless remote dial pad detach from the base unit and can be placed anywhere in the room. This means that users don’t have to shout across the room in order to be heard. It also means the sound is crisp and clear for users on both ends of the conversation. The innovative features and functional design make the Revolabs FLX perfect for executive offices, conference rooms, and SoHo environments.

    The Revolabs FLX offers incredible audio quality. With a transmission range of 65 feet, room arrangements are endless. Additionally, the FLX is resistant to feedback from wireless electronic devices like cell phones, iPads, and laptops.

    FLX minimizes equipment costs by supporting both audio and video conferencing. The FLX is compatible with all major brands of video conferencing equipment. USB audio to a PC makes applications such as Skype, WebEx, and Lync have wireless capabilities for conference calls. The FLX conference phone also has Bluetooth capabilities, making it possible for a smartphone to be turned into a conference phone.

    When Ricardo Trinidad, president of Telcom & Data, was asked about the Revolabs FLX conference phone, he said, “If a conference phone is fixed in one place, then those making the call also have to be fixed in one place. This simply isn’t practical for multi-person conference calls. The Revolabs FLX is the solution.”

  • Polycom SoundStation VXT 1000 Conference Phone and Sub Woofer Package, Delivers Superior Audio Quality Up To 20 Feet Away

    A standard conference phone won’t perform well in large conference rooms; audio quality diminishes dramatically as the distance between the individual speaking and the receiver is extended. Telcom & Data, a leader in business phone systems, is proud to introduce the Polycom SoundStation VXT 1000 conference phone as an ideal solution. With the VXT 1000, conference call participants can speak at their normal voice level and be heard clearly from up to 20-feet away from the receiver. The accompanying SoundStation VTX subwoofer extends down to 80Hz, providing great in-house sound.

    The VXT boasts many great features and benefits. The unit automatically selects wideband or narrowband mode based on the far-end phone. If a call is placed to another SoundStation VTX 1000, the phone will automatically connect in wideband mode. The unit is the world’s first phone to deliver wideband voice over ordinary telephone lines. Additionally, the phone automatically turns off the microphones that are not being used by the speaker, removing the “in the well” sound.

    When Ricardo Trinidad, President of Telcom & Data, was asked about the Polycom SoundStation VX 1000 conference phone, he said, “Sound quality is a real problem for many conferencing calls. This phone implements noise reduction technology and many automatic sound features to eliminate poor audio.”

    The VXT 1000 is easy to install and integrates with Polycom Vortex® installed room systems, Polycom VSX™ group video conferencing solutions, and Global Management System™.
