XOP Networks’ IP based Ringdown Firebar Conference Server increases its footprint in the Aviation sector

Share Article

XOP Networks, Inc., a provider of conferencing solutions has been expanding it's footprint in the aviation industry with it's Ringdown Firebar Conference Server (RFCS) based “Crash Net” and “Crash Alarm” systems.

Crash Phone based emergency alerting and notification systems have been an integral part of any Airport Emergecy Plan. The traditional systems suffer from many drawbacks such as low voice quality during inclement weather, high maintenance costs and expensives upgrades.The RFCS provides a very robust, reliable and scalable solution that can handle multiple network interfaces. The product supports FXS/FXO/T1/PRI as well as SIP trunk interface. Consequently, the product can be used to implement the legacy Loop Start lines based Crash phone system and allow the airport to migrate this function from the legacy environment to a hybrid (analog and IP) to an all IP solution.

The RFCS based solution allows for intergrated Crash Alert and Crash Phone capability where multiple phones and Push Buttons can be designated as trigger points. Activation of Alarms such as loud bells, siren and strobe lights can be initiated from push buttons. It also integrates third party devices that can trigger opening of gates at ARFF centers. The traditional Analog Crash Phones and VoIP based Crash Phones can co-exist on the same network. It has FXO/T1/PRI for connectivity through local PBX to the external world. Its flexible architecture allows redesign of the emergency network as the needs of the airports change. It's scheduled conferencing feature allows periodic drills and testing of the system.

"This solution has the additional advantage of being highly scalable, reliable and having built-in redundancy that results in very high availability." Said Sudhir Gupta, CEO of XOP Networks. This results in overall lower CapEx and OpEx for our customers.
