XOP Networks Deploys IP Based Crash Phone System at a Texas Airport

XOP Networks, Inc., a manufacturer of Emergency Communications Equipment and Audio Conference Bridges announces deployment of an IP based Crash Phone system at a regional airport in Texas.

XOP Networks’ is continuing to enhance its Crash Phone product line. In this latest deployment we have installed an IP based Crash Phone system that leverages the airport’s dedicated fiber-based data network that connects to all major buildings including ATC Tower, Fire Stations/EMT facilities, and the Dispatch Center. Dedicated IP phones have been deployed at each location that are dual homed to a pair of our Ringdown Firebar Conference Servers (RFCS) located in separate facilities ensuring very high availability.

Airports typically deploy Crash Phones using equipment that is hosted in a phone carrier’s Central Office. This arrangement requires airports to purchase expensive Centrex lines or 4 wire leased lines. Yet, most airports now have fiber optic rings interconnecting various buildings for providing routine data networking. The already laid fiber cable can be used to set up a dedicated fiber ring that can be used exclusively for the Crash Phone operation. XOP Networks’ IP based Crash Phone system leverages such fiber rings to provide superior crash phone functionality to the airports.

“We are very proud to have deployed this highly advanced IP based Crash Phone system as more airports want to upgrade their Crash Phone capabilities. XOP Networks’ continues to help airports meet the Crash Phone challenges with our modern, easy to deploy, and cost-effective solution and are looking forward to serving even more airports in the future,” said Sudhir Gupta, CEO of XOP Networks.
