Welcome to beroNet's Wiki for bero*fix
The berofix card series is a powerful and flexible hardware solution to connect ISDN (BRI,PRI) and GSM lines to any SIP based VoIP system. The berofix is not a Gateway and it is not a standard PCI/PCIexpress card where you have to install any drivers, therefore we call it a “Gateway card”. Due to the special design of the hardware berofix will be detected as a standard Realtek-Network card by the operating system. Usualy the driver for this network card will be loaded automatically by the OS. The only thing you have to do is to set up the IP-address before you can access the web interface which is very easy to use. The berofix card series has a modular concept and supports the following hardware DSP based Voice-Processing features:
G.168/G.165 Echo cancellation with echo path change detection, up to 128ms Codec translation: G.723.1 and Annex A, G.729a, G.726, G.711u/a DTMF detection and generation T.38 fax relay (V.27,V.29 and V.17) SIP over TCP with SRTP and TLS (available Q4 2009) Hardware Conferencing (available Q3 2009) DSS1, EuroISDN conform (features set: COLP,CFU/CFB,CFNRY ...) Q.SIG Basic-Features set: CNIP,CNIR,CONP PCM Bus interconnection between berofix cards to enable hardware bridging for transparent voice,data and Fax transmission via optional PCM-Bus cable. (available Q4 2009)
The berofix card series consist of a baseboard and the so called LineInterfaces. Each baseboard can carry up to two LineInterfaces. The berofix base boards are available as PCI or PCIexpress cards with the following channel densities:
berofix400 (4-16 channels) berofix1600(16-64 channels) berofix6400(64-120 channels)
The following Lineinterfaces are available and can be plugged on the berofix card series.
BF4S0, 4 Port BRI module BF1E1, 1 Port PRI module BF2E1, 2 Port PRI module BF1GSM,1 Port GSM module (available Q4 2009) BF2GSM,2 Port GSM module (available Q4 2009)
Additionally to the baseboard and the LineInterfaces the following accessories are available for the berofix card series:
bf4S0Bridge (to use all 4 RJ45 slots on a baseboard with one bf4S0) bnTAdapters (to connect 2 BRI Lines on 14 RJ45 slots) bnPCM Cable (to interconnect berofix baseboards) bnE1Crosscable (to connect berofix E1 ports to other systems)
Due to the modular concept you can mix PRI,BRI and GSM ports on one card with full above mentioned features which makes the berofix cards very unique.
