XORCOM TwinStar & TwinStar Plus
Award-winning solution providing rapid IP-PBX failover for the entire CompletePBX VoIP telephony solution
The TwinStar Plus configuration (P/N CTS2000, CTS3000, CXTS3000 or CXTS4000) is a bundled product, comprised of two module-less servers, based on the Xorcom CXE or CXT series IP-PBX, that have been optimized for use as an IP-PBX failover system.
TwinStar Plus IP-PBX Failover System Description
TwinStar Plus provides full redundancy for a complete PBX system, including telephony interfaces — yet it is also optimized for pure IP environments. It does not require an Astribank to function (as did the previous version of TwinStar). A sophisticated automatic replication and detection mechanism detects server failure and switches all telephony to the backup server, keeping downtime to an absolute minimum. The system also supports Asterisk® “Plug & Play” technology, which significantly improves reliability and reduces recovery time.
How to Determine the Right TwinStar Plus IP-PBX Failover Configuration for Your Implementation
The servers used in the TwinStar Plus IP-PBX failover configuration are either the CXE2000, the CXE3000, the Blue Steel CXT3000 or the Blue Steel CXT4000. The first meets the requirements of smaller installations, supporting up to 200 users and 85 concurrent calls. The second and third are more robust, supporting up to 1000 users and 550 concurrent calls. The latter is meets the highest call volume requirements, supporting up to 1500 users and 880 concurrent calls. If support for telephony interfaces are required (FXS, FXO, PRI/CAS/T1/E1 or BRI ISDN) complete the configuration by selecting the relevant Astribank model(s).
