A VoIP GSM Gateway enables direct routing between IP, digital, analog and GSM networks. With these devices (fixed cellular terminals) companies can significantly reduce the money they spend on telephony, especially the money they spend on calls from IP to GSM. The core idea behind cost saving with VoIP GSM Gateways is Least Cost Routing (LCR).
Calls to mobile networks are increasing exponentially and therefore organizations with basic phone systems pay excessive cost of fixed-to-mobile calls. Matrix GSM gateways integrates GSM networks directly into the existing telephony infrastructure. This reduces interconnection toll charges and communication costs. Matrix offers a wide range of integrated and scalable gateways, providing seamless connectivity to GSM/3G networks.
Increasingly, a large number of homeowners are using apartment intercom systems to improve the security of their homes. The apartment intercom systems are devices designed to identify people who wish to access your home or apartment. It will enable you to talk to the people and verify their purpose and identifications before they enter the house. Thus, making sure that everyone in the house uses the intercom will give your entire family great benefits.
Over the years, due to progress in technology, there has been a development of wireless residential intercom systems. The wireless intercom systems do not have copper wires running through them for connectivity. Instead, they are connected by radio waves and they communicate with radio frequencies. Whether wired or wireless, the intercom systems have many advantages. Let us look at some of the best intercom systems for apartments.
Closed-circuit television (CCTV), also known as video surveillance, is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors. It differs from broadcast television in that the signal is not openly transmitted, though it may employ point to point (P2P), point to multipoint (P2MP), or mesh wired or wireless links. Though almost all video cameras fit this definition, the term is most often applied to those used for surveillance in areas that may need monitoring such as bars, banks, casinos, schools, hotels, airports, hospitals, restaurants, military installations, convenience stores and other areas where security is needed. Video telephony is seldom called “CCTV” but the use of video in distance education, where it is an important tool, is often so called. Surveillance of the public using CCTV is common in many areas around the world. In recent years, the use of body worn video cameras has been introduced as a new form of surveillance. Video surveillance has generated significant debate about balancing its use with individuals’ right to privacy even when in public.
In industrial plants, CCTV equipment may be used to observe parts of a process from a central control room, for example when the environment is not suitable for humans. CCTV systems may operate continuously or only as required to monitor a particular event. A more advanced form of CCTV, utilizing digital video recorders (DVRs), provides recording for possibly many years, with a variety of quality and performance options and extra features (such as motion detection and email alerts). More recently, decentralized IP cameras, some equipped with megapixel sensors, support recording directly to network-attached storage devices, or internal flash for completely stand-alone operation.
Cloud computing is a type of Internet-based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., computer networks, servers, storage, applications and services), which can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort. Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users and enterprises with various capabilities to store and process their data in either privately owned, or third-party data centers that may be located far from the user–ranging in distance from across a city to across the world. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economy of scale, similar to a utility (like the electricity grid) over an electricity network.
An optical fiber cable is a cable containing one or more optical fibers that are used to carry light. The optical fiber elements are typically individually coated with plastic layers and contained in a protective tube suitable for the environment where the cable will be deployed. Different types of cable are used for different applications, for example long distance telecommunication, or providing a high-speed data connection between different parts of a building.
Fiber to the x (FTTX) is a generic term for any broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop used for last mile telecommunications. As fiber optic cables are able to carry much more data than copper cables, especially over long distances, copper telephone networks built in the 20th century are being replaced by fiber.
FTTX is a generalization for several configurations of fiber deployment, arranged into two groups: FTTP/FTTH/FTTB (Fiber laid all the way to the premises/home/building) and FTTC/N (fiber laid to the cabinet/node, with copper wires completing the connection).
Home security involves the security hardware in place on a property, and personal security practices. The hardware would be the doors, locks, alarm systems, lighting, motion detectors, security camera systems, etc. that are installed on a property. Personal security practices would be ensuring doors are locked, alarms activated, windows closed, extra keys not hidden outside and many other routine tasks which act to prevent a burglary. According to an FBI report, 58.3 percent of burglaries involved forcible entry. A typical burglary lasts for about 8 to 12 minutes and, on average, a burglar will break into a home within 60 seconds. Home security can be strengthened by adding a first line of defence like a thorny shrub or bush to give the burglar a hard time. A motion activated bright light can play a psychological role in deterring a burglar, also acting as a second line of defence along with outdoor security cameras. In order to protect the entry points, we need to have window and door sensors. Once a burglar gets past the second line of defence, motion detectors kick in. A motion detector can raise an alarm or send a security footage to the homeowner if it’s linked to a camera system. Storing valuables like passports, jewelry, important
Documents, etc. might also be considered a home security precaution. Common security methods include never hiding extra keys outside, never turning off all the lights, applying small CCTV stickers on doors, and keeping good tabs with neighbours.
The implementation of an IP telephone system in a business requires the use of a very specific type of phone: The IP Telephone.
IP Phones are sometimes called VoIP telephones, SIP phones or softphones. These are just different names for a device/software client that is designed to support the transmission of voice over the internet, or what is better known as VoIP (or Voice over Internet Protocol) technology.
With an open mindset to supersede the user experience and deliver ease of use, Matrix offers a range of IP and SIP phones. Based on cutting-edge technology and latest telephony features, Matrix SIP/IP Phones are available in entry-level phones to premium deskphones with touch-screen display. These phones are suitable for basic users, middle-level managers and business professionals.
IP Telephones come in several types. Learn more about the different kinds of IP phones.
An IP PBX is a private branch exchange (telephone switching system within an enterprise) that switches calls between VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol or IP) users on local lines while allowing all users to share a certain number of external phone lines. The typical IP PBX can also switch calls between a VoIP user and a traditional telephone user, or between two traditional telephone users in the same way that a conventional PBX does. The abbreviation may appear in various texts as IP-PBX, IP/PBX, or IPPBX.

Video door-phone (also known as video door entry or video intercom) is a stand-alone intercom system used to manage calls made at the entrance to a building (residential complex, detached family home, workplace, etc.) with access controlled by audiovisual communication between the inside and outside. The main feature of video door entry is that it enables the person indoors to identify the visitor and, if (and only if) they wish, engage in conversation and /or open the door to allow access to the person calling.
A VoIP gateway (or PSTN Gateway) is a device which converts telephony traffic into IP for transmission over a data network. They are used in two ways:
1. To Convert Incoming PSTN / Telephone Lines to VoIP/SIP:
The VoIP gateway allows calls to be received and placed on the regular telephony network. In many business cases, it is preferable to continue to use traditional phone lines because one can guarantee a higher call quality and availability.
2. To Connect a Traditional PBX / Phone System to the IP Network:
The VoIP gateway allows calls to be made via VoIP. Calls can then be placed via a VoIP service provider, or in the case of a company with multiple offices, interoffice calling costs can be reduced by routing the calls via the Internet. VoIP gateways are available as external units or as PCI cards. The vast majority of devices are external units. A VoIP gateway has a connector for the IP network and one or more ports to connect the phone lines to it.
Types of VoIP Gateways
- Analog units:Analog units are used to connect regular analog phone lines to the gateway. Analog units are available for between 2-24 lines.
- Digital units:Digital units allow you to connect digital lines, either one or more BRI ISDN lines (Europe), one or more PRI/E1 lines (Europe) or one or more T1 lines.
Wi-Fi or WiFi is a technology for wireless local area networking with devices based on the IEEE 802.11 standards. 802.11 is the “radio frequency” needed to transmit Wi-Fi, it was defined by Vic Hayes who created the IEEE 802.11 committee. Wi-Fi is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance, which restricts the use of the term Wi-Fi Certified to products that successfully complete interoperability certification testing.
Devices that can use Wi-Fi technology include personal computers, video-game consoles, smartphones, digital cameras, tablet computers, digital audio players and modern printers. Wi-Fi compatible devices can connect to the Internet via a WLAN network and a wireless access point. Such an access point (or hotspot) has a range of about 20 meters (66 feet) indoors and a greater range outdoors. Hotspot coverage can be as small as a single room with walls that block radio waves, or as large as many square kilometers achieved by using multiple overlapping access points.
