Boston, MA, USA – Monday, September 25, 2017 – Grandstream, connecting the world since 2002 with award-winning unified communications solutions, today announced the availability of a high-availability controller for their UCM6510 IP PBX. The HA100 is ideal for any business that requires an always-on, redundant voice system by providing an automatic failover solution when paired with two UCM6510 IP PBXs. The device will constantly monitor the operational status of both UCM6510s and will automatically switch all system control to the hot-standby secondary UCM6510 when the primary device fails for any reason.
The HA100 can switch entire system functionality (including all of the connected telecom lines, network links, auxiliary devices, all registered SIP endpoints and their recorded voicemails) from the failed UCM6510 to the hot-standby secondary UCM6510 within only 10-50 seconds depending on the number of SIP endpoints registered. Thanks to its smart monitoring and automated failover capabilities, the HA100 offers the ideal high-availability solution for Grandstream’s UCM6510 IP PBX for maximum complete system reliability and uptime.
Other notable features of the HA100 include:
- Constantly monitored ports that connect with each interface port (including each FXO port, FXS port, T1/E1 port, network port, etc) of both the primary and secondary UCM6510 to ensure complete control of every aspect of the system
- 14 LED indicators to show real-time visual status information of telecom lines, network links, auxiliary devices and more
- Gratuitous ARP to force SIP endpoints to refresh their MAC address cache and pair with the secondary UCM6510 without interruption
“Many businesses today require communication solutions that are always-on and fully redundant. For these businesses, a communication platform being down for even a minute can have catastrophic consequences. As our customers around the world continue to deploy the UCM6510 into mission-critical industries, the HA100 ensures that end-user customers will have a completely reliable solution with seamless failover options,” said David Li, CEO of Grandstream.
