The berofix product series, available from ICTGlobe, is a powerful and flexible hardware solution to connect ISDN (BRI, PRI), analogue (FXO/FXS) and GSM lines to any SIP based VoIP system. berofix is not a classical media gateway nor a standard PCI/PCIexpress card where you have to install any drivers, therefore it’s called 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. Usually 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 product 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
  • TLS (SIP Signalling)
  • SRTPv (available Q3 2011)
  • DSS1, EuroISDN conform
  • Q.SIG Basic-Features
  • PCM Bus interconnection between berofix cards and even Boxes to enable hardware bridging for transparent voice, data and fax transmissions via optional PCM-Bus cable (available in V2)
 
 
The beroFix Mainboard (available as PCI or PCIe)
 
Modular & Expandable
 
The Mainboard is modular where you can plug and mix different access modules in analogue, digital (BRI/PRI ISDN) and GSM all on the same card. A PCM Bus interconnection between berofix cards enables you to bridge hardware for building mixed and high-density transparent Voice, Video, Data and Fax transmissions.
 
5 Minute Installation: It’s Plug & Play!
 
Berofix is OS independent and can be used for Linux/Unix Windows and MAC OS. This new advancement in technology incorporates a proprietary Beronet OS on the Mainboards which is automatically detected by your system as just ‘Network card’. All necessary drivers are automatically loaded by the host machine’s OS.
 
Features:
 
• Codecs: G.723.1 and Annex A, G.729 a/b, G.726, G.711 u/A
• G.168/G.165 Echo Cancellation with Echo Path Change Detection, up to 128ms
• DTMF Digit Detection
• Voice Activity Detection / Comfort Noise Generation
• Caller ID Generation / Detection
• T.38 fax relay (v.27ter, V.29, and V.17)
• DSS1, EuroISDN conform (feature set: COLP, CFU/CFB, CFNRY, CCBS, ECT, UUS, MCID, CD, CW)
• Q.SIG feature set: CNIP,
• Runs on every operating system with every SIP based VoIP solution like AsteriskR, OpenSER, SwyxR or 3CXR
• Modular concept enabling the mix of available technologies (for example E1 and S0)
