  • MCU Integration
    Provides seamless connectivity from ISDN to the Codian MCU 4200 series voice and video conference bridges.
  • Latest Video Technology
    Enables high-end conferencing features over ISDN, such as H.264 for high quality video, resolutions up to 720p HD, data sharing using H.239 dual video, wideband audio and, when combined with a Codian MCU, supports the MCU’s video auto attendant.
  • Ease of Use
    Connects all your voice and video IP endpoints and infrastructure to ISDN. Easy integration without the need for a gatekeeper. Dial by phone number or by IP
    address. Simple to install and maintain.
  • Voice and Video Conferencing
    Supports calls to and from ordinary telephones connected to the PSTN. This allows single phone number voice and video dialing into your organization, and allows you to take advantage of the additional voice ports on the Codian MCU to provide high quality audio conferencing.
  • Scalable, High-Capacity
    Up to four ISDN T1 / E1 PRIs in a single unit, with the number of sites limited only by the number of ISDN channels. This gives you the capacity to provide ISDN
    connectivity to all your IP voice and video endpoints.
  • Robust and Reliable
    Designed from the ground up as network infrastructure, it is rack mountable with custom non-PC hardware and a secure operating system. Includes comprehensive
    remote web management, diagnostics, reporting and upgrades.
  • Standards-Based and Compatible
    Optimized for use in IP networks to give you the best possible video quality under real-world network conditions – the ISDN Gateway offers compatibility with all the
    major IP and ISDN endpoint vendors.
