RTS VLink TIF Phone Hybrid IP PBX Interconnect Methods

by sbrand on January 26, 2018 No comments

There are two possibilities for the VLink TIF server to connect to a PBX.  The first is via a “Registered” connection where we use a username and password to register a SIP Client to the PBX and then receive and initiate calls via SIP Invites from/to the PBX in the same manner as a SIP client.  The second is via a “Direct IP” or non-registered connection in which we only use the user name to receive and initiate calls via the PBX.  In this case there is no registration or authentication but rather simply SIP Invites from/to the PBX.  At some customer installations, this second method is used to install a “SIP Trunk” between the VLink TIF server and an offsite 3rd Party provider for the phone line access.

Refer to the VLink SIP User Guide for more information.

VCOM Matrix Intercom Application for NASA Deep Space Gateway Cislunar Program

NASA’s Cislunar Human Outpost

NASA is pressing ahead with plans for a cislunar “gateway” outpost for
future human missions to space. Concepts are being studied for
launching the first elements of the proposed outpost. The outpost will
be a collection of habitation, cargo and other modules that could
support crews working in lunar orbit or elsewhere in cislunar space
for extended periods. Orion spacecraft would ferry astronauts to and
from the outpost, where they could test technologies and perform other
work needed to support NASA’s long-term plans for human missions to
Mars in the 2030s.

VCOM-to-Deep Space Gateway

Intracom is working with NASA to implement a VCOM-to-VCOM SIP trunk
over a space-to-ground comm link based on Delay / Disruption Tolerant
Networking (DTN). According to NASA engineers, this capability has
potentially extensive use in the Deep Space Gateway (DSG) cislunar
program over the next decade.
