On the edge

Nomads need to stay connected, too

The NOMAD Incident Command Platform from
Fortified Holdings Corp. delivers instant infrastructure
providing secure, reliable IP-based voice,
video and data communications anywhere and
under virtually any conditions.

If power is out, cell service is interrupted and
phone lines are down, NOMAD establishes satellite
connectivity or cellular backhaul through an
integrated broadband cellular router.

Then, in less than three minutes, support data
and communications can be accessed, the company
said.

NOMAD features an integrated rechargeable
power supply that lasts as long as 24 hours on a
single charge; digital print, fax and copy capabilities;
broadband Internet access; Global
Positioning System location and mapping technologies;
digital imaging and high-resolution scanning
capabilities; and other features.

Take your office phone everywhere

A new version of 3CX's phone system for Windows
makes it easier for remote workers to connect to
an organization's private branch exchange.

Version 5.1 of 3CX Phone System for Windows
has an integrated tunnel that simplifies firewall
configuration by channeling all voice-over-IP traffic
via a single port.

This makes it easy for remote workers and network
managers to connect different remote PBX
systems to one another, 3CX officials said.
Traditionally, firewall configuration for remote
SIP/VOIP systems and/or extensions can represent
a challenge, because it requires many open
ports.

The 3CX Tunnel, a tunneling protocol, is not
proprietary and can be used with popular VOIP
soft and hard phones.

The system features easy firewall configuration.
And remote workers do not need to edit the firewall
configuration to connect to the IP PBX from
any location, such as at hotels or airports.
