VOCAL’s V.152 Gateway on software is a standards based implementation that incorporates transport of analog modulated signals generated by data modems, facsimile terminals, and PSTN text telephone across IP network as audio compressed with a suitable codec, such as G.711. This solution supports modem over IP (MoIP), fax over IP (FoIP), text over IP (ToIP) operation in Voice Band Data (VBD) mode. The fast-paced migration to IP-based communications has generated a need for transmitting voice-band data, such as fax, data modem and text telephone signals over the IP network. This can be accomplished through the use of VOCAL V.152 gateway to interface between the PSTN and IP networks. The gateway demodulates the incoming data and transmits the pertinent information over the IP network to the remote gateway so that it may be modulated and sent to the remote machine.
Payload Type Indication – This default method for switching between transport modes using RTP payload types are supported in the gateways.
SSE – Signaling State Events are Supported, it is a mechanism by which the media states are synchronized between the media gateways.
SPRT – Simple Packet Relay Transport for text relay is supported along with different data types (I_OCTET, I_OCTET_CS, I_RAW_OCTET) to carry the data from one gateway to another.
SDP – Different variations of the Session description based on the requirement available, e.g., port sharing where you can send the SPRT and the RTP over the same port.
Interoperability – Our gateways use a number of modulations and character encodings with many other different vendors.
Scalability – A large number of channels on a single gateway can be supported, starting from 10s to 100s based on the gateway.
Flexibility – VOCAL’s V.152 gateway is based on a hardware independent library, allowing for a large number of the target platforms. Any standard Linux or Windows distribution is supported, along with a wide variety of embedded platforms.
VOCAL’s v.152 implementation can be combined with other VOCAL v.15x series of recommendations like ITU-T V.150.1 for Modem-over-IP (MoIP) or ITU-T V.151 for Text over IP (ToIP). Although for each V.15x recommendation, there is a requirement that the support for it has to negotiated with the remote gateway specifically.
