7-in-1 modem router design with VoIP, PBX & DECT
- Project Overview
A company focused on software development for VoIP and digital PBX.
Our client decided to enter the market with the new B2B product for small office/home office (SOHO).
They already had a software product for VoIP services but it behaved differently with different hardware. They needed to design their own device so not to depend on vendor-supplied chips and libraries.
Having no experience in hardware design, they chose Promwad as a technology partner with expertise and a trustworthy portfolio with telecom projects.
We have designed and prepared for mass production an advanced VoIP modem router that provides all types of office communications.
Our engineers designed an enclosure, hardware, low-level software, and Linux-based middleware, as well as stands for functional testing at the production site.
The new product included the functionality of seven devices in one:
- telephony with DECT base station, Asterisk-based VoIP gateway, and office PBX;
- Internet and local network via Ethernet, xDSL, WiFi, 3G, WiMax;
- connection with peripheral devices and operation of network storage (NAS).
Our client received not only the 7-in-1 device but also one of the first modem routers with DECT base station on the market. It supported up to 6 handsets.
Another competitive advantage is the integration of a ready-made VoIP software of our client with his own hardware solution. As a result, he guaranteed his subscribers a stable operation of the equipment.
Thanks to the use of software components with open source code and Linux distribution, there are wide options for adapting and developing firmware for the device in the future.
The production volume of this B2B product has reached 20,000 units.
During the project's implementation, Promwad specialists performed the following tasks:
— Enclosure design and mechanical engineering
— Development of hardware and part of the software
— Manufacturing of prototypes
— Creation of test stands for functional testing
— Preparation for mass production
