Grandstream Releases a New IP PBX High Availability Controller for Beta Testing
Beta test features a high availability controller to pair with Grandstream’s UCM6510 IP PBX
Boston, MA (June 22, 2017) – – Grandstream Networks, connecting the world since 2002 with award-winning SIP unified communication solutions, is releasing a new IP PBX High Availability (HA) controller for beta testing by the Grandstream Beta Club. Grandstream will be opening applications for the beta test of this upcoming HA Controller for the UCM6510 from June 22nd to July 5th. To apply go to betaclub.grandstream.com.
For this new beta test, the Grandstream Beta Club is looking for beta testers with experience with Grandstream’s UCM6510 IP PBX, and extensive knowledge of IP PBXs and high availability solutions. Ideal applicants are those who have hands-on experience deploying high availability failover solutions for IP PBX phone systems.
The new HA controller being beta tested is the first of its kind in Grandstream’s product portfolio, and pairs exclusively with the UCM6510 IP PBX. The UCM6510 IP PBX is the highest capacity IP PBX in Grandstream’s portfolio, supporting up to 2000 SIP endpoints and 200 concurrent calls, and with built-in Gigabit network ports, E1/T1/J1 digital telecom port, as well as FXS and FXO analog telecom interfaces.
This HA Controller constantly monitors the operation status of a primary UCM6510 and provides fast failover to a secondary hot-standby UCM6510 in the event that the primary device experiences a failure. Upon detection of the primary UCM6510’s failure, the HA controller completes the automated failover switch of an entire phone system (including restoration of the network & telecom line connections, and re-registration of all SIP devices) to the hot-standby backup UCM6510 within 10 to 50 seconds (depending on the number of SIP devices previously registered on the failed UCM6510), all without human intervention.
50 units of this high availability kit will be available for shipping to selected Beta Club members around mid-July, 2017. Due to the specific product compatibility with the UMC6510 IP PBX, testers must own at least two UCM6510s in order to be eligible and to test the device effectively.
Program Availability & Pricing
Each product beta test released through the Grandstream Beta Club will have a limited number of beta test units available. Application to the Grandstream Beta Club is open to anyone and is FREE. Selection of participants will be determined by Grandstream based on applicant qualification. The cost to participate in a beta test will be $1 to cover handling, however the product model and shipping will be free of charge for each active beta tester. There is no charge to applicants who are not selected for a Beta test.
