XOP Networks, Inc., a developer of advanced Emergency Communications equipment and Audio Conference Bridges, announced support for IP based leased lines on its Ringdown Firebar Conference Server product. Use of IP based leased lines can reduce operations cost by up to 66%.

Ringdown Firebar Conference Systems are typically deployed as "Crash Phone" systems at the Airports, Air Force bases and at campus locations that are prone to emergency situations, such as Nuclear Power Plants, Chemical plants, Oil and gas installations etc. A person close to the emergency can simply lift the handset on a designated Crash phone and trigger dial out calls to other Crash phones. As first responders answer these calls they are automatically placed into an audio conference with the initiator.

In case the some of the crash phones are placed at distances greater than 30,000 feet, e.g., a 911 dispatch center in an adjoining city, the typical practice is to use a leased analog line from the public carrier to connect the crash phone to the conferencing equipment.

Such leased lines are prohibitively expensive. As carriers are implementing MPLS based data networks, they have begun selling ‘IP based Leased Lines’. An IP based leased line is priced at 1/3rd the price of its analog equivalent. In order to minimize the operations cost associated with the crash phone deployment, XOP Networks has added IP termination on its RFCS product.

“Thanks to the flexibility built into the XOP product architecture, it is relatively easy for us to enable new functionality needed by our customers,” said David Trusty, Chief Technology Officer of XOP Networks.

“Our Ringdown Firebar Conference Server now supports IP based leased line capability. One of our RFCS customer was paying about $3200/month for the analog leased line. After deploying our RFCS customer could use IP based leased line that costs about $1200/month thus cutting down their overall operations cost by about 60%”, added Doug Jacob’s, VP Sales, XOP Networks.
