Branch Office Survivability

IP-based telephony systems have introduced great flexibility and broaden ways to communicate for businesses, but they can be adversely affected if IP network outages occur and systems cannot respond properly. When using a hosted IP-PBX or cloud-based UC suite, communication service interruptions may impact corporate productivity and, most times, translate into profit loss.

Mediatrix Survivability Gateways provide Service Continuity even when access to the primary server is unavailable due to a WAN failure or other outages. Mediatrix ensures the internal call control while redirecting external calls to a secondary, geo-redundant server or to the PSTN.

Survivability Gateways – What We Offer

In case of WAN failure or poor connectivity to the softswitch, the Mediatrix Survivability feature establishes a fallback mode of operation to connect local endpoints (such as IP-Phones, ATAs, analog phones, and faxes) together while redirecting external calls to backup SIP trunks and gateways. It also offers immediate recovery of call control to the softswitch once connectivity is restored.

Mediatrix is able to respond to challenging network and traffic conditions, ensuring remote site survivability and service continuity without manual configuration.

For all business sizes and verticals, Mediatrix offers survivability at a cost-effective price point.

Mediatrix survivability platforms ensure:

  • Fallback to secondary server or PSTN lifeline
  • On-premise communications alive during downtimes
  • Automatically build a contact database for IP-Phones (SIP Registration snooping)
  • SIP server monitoring
  • Registration throttling
  • Dynamic call routing
