Patented SelectNet™ Technology assures high quality voice.
The Tenor employs its patented SelectNet™ Technology to monitor calls for
jitter, packet loss, and latency, and can transparently switch mid-call to the
voice network whenever conditions demand.
More intelligence means greater flexibility.
With its MultiPath Call Routing, the Tenor can intelligently route calls between
the PBX, the PSTN, and the IP network to achieve the best combination of cost
and quality. The Tenor can also route calls over IP to reduce costs, and then
transparently "hop off" to the PSTN, to reach off-net locations. No other VoIP
solution can match this flexibility.
More intelligence means easier installation.
With its MultiPath architecture, the Tenor is the only VoIP solution that can be
installed without upgrades to the existing voice or data networks. Tenor
connects to the data network through a 10/100 Ethernet interface, and to the
enterprise and public voice network through a T1, E1, or PRI interface.
More intelligence means greater reliability.
The Tenor is designed to pass calls through to the existing voice network in the
event of system malfunction – even a total power failure.
More intelligence means less network congestion.
With its PacketSaver™ Technology, the Tenor reduces bandwidth consumption up to
57%, by combining voice packets from several calls into a single packet to
minimize bandwidth requirements.
NATAccess™ intelligence means greater security.
The Tenor VoIP MultiPath Switch also features a unique technology that allows it
to operate behind NAT-enabled firewalls. The innovative NATAccess™ solution
overcomes the problem of NAT firewalls not correctly translating internal IP
addresses into public addresses when a VoIP call is established with an outside
