Difference - IP Media Resource 320 or Medpro?

Difference - IP Media Resource 320 or Medpro?

Hi guys,

Sorry for question, but ... , somebody can tell me difference between

* IP Media Resource
* Medpro
* Prowler



RE: Difference - IP Media Resource 320 or Medpro?

  They all basically do the same thing: TDM to IP conversion.

  The term 'MedPro' or 'Prowler' was typically used with a TN2302.  That board had 64 DSP resources on it.  It could manage 64 uncompressed calls or 32 compressed calls.

  The Crossfire board (TN2602) was originally offered in two flavors: 80 & 320 channels.  Avaya now bundles it all together and only sells the 320 channel board.  I believe the Crossfire board handles 320 calls either compressed or non-compressed.  You had to be aa CM 3.x to use the Crossfire boards.


RE: Difference - IP Media Resource 320 or Medpro?

Also note, that if you want "Duplication" of the media resources, only the TN2602AP media processor is capable of that.  You can administer 2 of the cards in 1 port network with "hot" failover/redundancy.  That can't be done on the TN2302AP (older medpro)
