Cisco IP Communications solutions provide the means for integrating voice and data allowing users to take advantage of services such as IP telephony, integrated services, and toll-bypass. These solutions allow enterprises, managed network service providers, and service providers to reap the advantages of Unified Communications such as lower operating costs and increased productivity. Cisco Unified Communications solutions also enable packet voice technologies including voice over IP (VoIP) (including H.323, Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP), and Sessions Initiation Protocol (SIP), voice over Frame, voice over ATM (including AAL2 and AAL5 adaptation layers).
The IP Communications High-Density Digital Voice/Fax Network Modules are an integral part of the Cisco Unified Communications offering, delivering a versatile combination of digital voice, analog voice, and data capabilities in a single network module form factor. They not only provide the IP telephony gateway to Cisco UC architectures for calls to and from the PSTN and the WAN, but also allow enterprises to deploy networks with existing traditional telephony equipment until they are ready to migrate to IP telephony. Features include high-density digital voice and WAN connectivity up to four T1/E1 ports, analog voice connectivity up to four ports, and up to 50 conferencing and transcoding sessions1. Enterprises can now deploy all these rich features on a single network module, enabling connectivity to the PSTN, traditional telephony equipment such as PBXs, key systems, analog telephones, fax machines, and the enterprise WAN.
