TwinStar IP-PBX Failover with Server Redundancy

Award-winning solution providing automatic IP-PBX failover for the entire telephony system

The TwinStar configuration (P/N TS2000 or TS3000) is a bundled product, comprised of two module-less servers, based on the Xorcom XE series IP-PBX, that have been optimized for use as an automatic IP-PBX failover system.

TwinStar Automatic IP-PBX Failover System Description

TwinStar provides full redundancy for IP-PBX, including telephony interfaces. It utilizes an Astribank to perform sophisticated automatic replication and features a mechanism which detects server failure and switches all telephony to the backup server, keeping downtime to an absolute minimum. The system also supports Asterisk® “Plug & Play” technology, which significantly improves reliability and reduces recovery time.

How to Determine the Right TwinStar Automatic IP-PBX Failover Configuration for Your Implementation

The servers used in the TwinStar automatic IP-PBX failover configuration are either the XE2000 or the XE3000. The former meets the requirements of smaller installations, supporting up to 200 users and 85 concurrent calls. The latter is more robust, supporting up to 1000 users and 550 concurrent calls. If support for telephony interfaces are required (FXS, FXO, PRI/CAS/T1/E1 or BRI ISDN) complete the configuration by selecting the relevant Astribank model(s). The easiest way to determine the configuration is by using the PBX Configuration Wizard.

 

IP-PBX Failover for 201-1000 Extensions: TS3000

The TwinStar TS3000 automatic IP-PBX failover solution is comprised of two XE3000 module-less VoIP servers in 19″ 2U chassis. Digital PRI and BRI ISDN and PSTN/analog phone ports can be supported by connecting external Astribank units via the USB2 ports, for a total of up to 672 PSTN/analog phones ports, up to 1000 users and up to 550 concurrent calls (SIP only); 480 for PRI / FXS.

The TS3000 automatic IP-PBX failover solution comes standard with a RAID1 Support, redundant fans for cooling, internal backup and restore, front panel USB access, and two Ethernet ports to allow separation of IP voice and data traffic for improved voice quality and increased throughput.

A multi-function LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) on the TS3000 automatic IP-PBX failover solution allows the system administrator to perform several of the most common functions directly on the front panel of the IP-PBX without having to attach a keyboard and monitor. The touch panel uses a text-based menu tree to facilitate monitoring, maintenance and troubleshooting of the entire telephony system.

Also available with the TS3000 is the Rapid Recovery – Backup Utility, provided on Disk-on-Key. TS3000 configurations with an FXS module support Rapid PA – Public Address to provide public address functionality to Asterisk installations, and are also offered with I/O ports to support a wide array of peripheral devices.
