Voice Exchange 900 (VX 900)

Designed for the Federal market, the Ribbon's VX 900 Voice Exchange is the industry's first fully integrated multi-service voice switch with Any-to-Any gateway functionality, creating a next-generation solution for enterprise VoIP enablement. The award-winning VX 900 platform provides the most powerful, most complete, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solution. The VX 900 platform supports analog, digital, and native IP voice, as well as port and trunk side serial data, making it a compelling solution for any government agency looking to deploy IP-based voice and data solutions. 

The product line combines the functionality of a media gateway, signaling control point, H.323/SIP inter-working device, media server and voice/data mux in a single chassis. As a port side interface, the optional serial data card enables legacy equipment to take advantage of the IP backbone, realizing full convergence.

Features & Benefits

  • When your network experiences slow traffic flow and packet loss, secure VoIP calls stay connected because the VX 900 can withstand significant packet loss and jitter, and still keep the calls connected. SCIP calls through the VX 900 can withstand complete network failure for up to 10 seconds without failing the call. Secure calls stay connected in a degraded environment.
  • The VX 900 platform supports analog, digital, and native IP voice, as well as port and trunk side serial data, saving you money as you deploy IP-based voice and data solutions. The VX 900 combines the functionality of a media gateway, signaling control point, H.323/SIP inter-working device, media server and voice/data mux in a single chassis.
  • The VX 900 integrates the key elements of a VoIP network into a single platform by implementing a distributed architecture. Each VX 900 node acts as an independent intelligent processing element. There is no reliance on centralized servers for routing and management decisions, so a VX 900 network has no single point of failure. A distributed architecture also results in lower call set-up times and allows the network to grow to any size without a detrimental effect on call performance. Each node essentially adds processing power to the network.
