Difference - IP Media Resource 320 or Medpro?

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.

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)
