The TPO patented (#8149741) technology provides and manages asymmetrical multi-party calls including conferences, line sharing, barge-in calls and group intercom. All users may take part in multiple TPO calls simultaneously.
Scalability and redundancy
The TPO servers can be set up in hot-standby configurations that maintain the session context and achieve voice path recovery in less than 5 seconds without impacting the call context. A TPO cluster of servers supports up to 3000 full duplex voice streams. Cold stand-by clusters of clusters can be set up guaranteeing a sub 30 seconds convergence time.
Typical use cases for the TPO
The TPO is typically used as a VoIP and RoIP (radio over IP) concentrator for Cisco’s IPICS system or ED.137 compliant SIP gateways or as toll bypass system giving access to all users and all locally terminated radio and telephony links from anywhere in the institution’s network. The TPO is also a full featured intercom bridge and can be used for this specific feature alone or along with all other features.
The TPO DDI sharing capability allows it to add features required on trading floors to non IP Trade end points (phones) or to PBX’s that would only provide dial tone and basic features to IP Command dispatch consoles. This includes private wire access, multi-party calls and the IP Command Mobile Commander application.
the TPO application runs in a Windows 2012 environment, on dedicated servers, on VMWare virtualized environments. The TPO application has been granted a Cisco UCS certification and can be delivered as an OVA as well.
Working as the console system feature controller, TPO delivers dynamic conferencing capabilities and unique communication features, functions, and workflows.
These attributes, critical to the success of command center personnel, include:
- Non-blocking trunking
- Multiple, simultaneous talk path support
- Shared one-touch connections and speed-dial directories
- Expanded Barge-In and ad hoc conferencing
- Voice recording integration
The TPO is recognized as a native SIP device on enterprise voice applications. Virtually all features and applications available to IP phone users are automatically extended to console users. All users share lines and show presence no matter what device they use. The TPO application can be installed on the customer’s own server systems.
