Annouce: Sangoma Releases the New A200 FXO/FXS Card

Meeting growing global demand in the telephony space, the A200 and Sangoma's REMORA system together, comprise the FXO/FXS version of the company's Advanced Flexible Telecommunications (AFT) hardware designed for optimum support of analog voice traffic.

"There is still a huge demand and need for FXO/FXS technologies in many countries around the world," says Sangoma Technologies President and CEO David Mandelstam. "Not all telephone systems require the latest VoIP technologies, but still require robust analog capabilities to maintain quality of service. We understand this need and are taking an industry lead by providing a price/performance solution that our competitors will now follow."

The A200 solution supports any combination of up to 24 FXO or FXS connections. A single PCI slot host connection for all ports ensures common synchronous clocking for all channels. The base AFT architecture is shared with Sangoma's A101, A201 and A104 and soon to be released A108 cards ensuring common 3.3V/5V, high performance PCI compatibility.

In keeping with the philosophy of providing complete flexibility to all customers, the A200 has field upgradeable firmware to take advantage of hardware and software improvements as they become available. In continuing to raise the bar by providing price performance for softPBX solutions, Sangoma is shipping an optional low density HW based echo canceller for the A200 series.

The A200 consists of a REMORA daughterboard mounted on the AFT PCI card. The REMORA card has two sockets each of which can accept a FXO-2 or FXS-2 module. Each FXO-2 or FXS-2 module supports two FXO or FXS ports respectively.

Up to five additional REMORA daughterboards can be mounted in empty slot positions beside the A200 assembly connected to the A200 by a backplane bus connector.
