iSNet networking solutions

  1. 1. SOPHO iS3000 iSNet networking solutions Key features – Networking applications for private networks using SOPHO iS3000 communication systems – All networked SOPHO iS3000 systems act as a single integrated system – SOPHO iSNet is designed to sup- port a large variety of network standards (QSIG, DPNSS, PVN, IP) – Networking over leased lines, pub- lic switched networks and data networks – Comprehensive IP and QSIG support (for multi-vendor environ- ments) Linking individual sites is one of the most effective ways in which organisations with a distributed structure can make their business processes more efficient and economical. SOPHO iSNet provides the SOPHO iS3000 platform with powerful networking solutions. Any distributed organisation, such as universities, government departments, local authorities and companies with a national or worldwide network of branches and/or sales offices, can bring sites and staff together in a single virtual network. Within this network, users can enjoy transparent access to all the functions and features of the SOPHO iS3000 communication system. SOPHO iSNet applications support not only traditional, circuit-switched TDM telephony, but also packet-switched IP telephony.The high degree of flexibility typical of SOPHO iSNet applications safeguards the varying requirements of different organisational structures. Supported by mixed TDM and IP environments, SOPHO iSNet meets all the preconditions organisations demand for migrating to an IP-based, converged voice-data network, making it future-proof while also protecting existing investments.

Main advantages of a private – SOPHO iSNet’s high degree of flexibility enables the deploy- ment of applications on demand. network – All systems and applications controlled by SOPHO iSNet are SOPHO iSNet links multi-site communications platforms, managed via LAN-ready IP-telephony tools, with simultaneous enabling them to act as a single integrated system, which can be and remote device set-up and management available across organised and managed centrally, as part of an open and flexible all sites and systems. private network.This enables the construction or addition of systems and applications to perform in a company- or campus- wide environment.
