The TE205P supports both E1 and T1/J1 environments and is selectable on a per-card or per-port basis. This feature enables signaling translation between E1 and T1/J1 equipment and allows inexpensive T1/J1 channel banks to connect with E1 circuits. Because the TE205P improves I/O speed over slave-only architecture, the result is reduced CPU usage and increased card density per server.
Digium has designed the TE205P to be fully compatible with existing software applications and it is fully integrated with the Asterisk Open Source PBX/IVR platform. Also, the open source driver supports an API interface for custom application development. With the combination of Digium Hardware and Asterisk software, numerous combinations of telephony configurations are possible. From the traditional PBX to VoIP Gateways, Digium solutions are paving the way for a new generation of worldwide communications.
The TE205P supports industry standard telephony and data protocols, including Primary Rate ISDN (both N. American and Standard Euro) protocol families for voice, PPP, Cisco, HDLC, and Frame Relay data modes. Both line-side and trunk-side interfaces are supported, also included are advanced call features. The TE205P is for use only with a 5.0 volt PCI slot.
