Plain old telephone service (POTS) is voice-grade telephone service employing analog signal transmission over copper loops. POTS was the standard service offering from telephone companies from 1876 until 1988 when the now-obsolete Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) Basic Rate Interface (BRI) was introduced, followed by cellular telephone systems, and Voice over IP (VoIP). POTS remains the basic form of residential and small business service connection to the telephone network in many parts of the world. The term reflects the technology that has been available since the introduction of the public telephone system in the late 19th century, in a form mostly unchanged despite the introduction of Touch-Tone dialing, electronic telephone exchanges and fiber-optic communication into the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
An intelligent PBX solution using Iridium to operate as a telephone, Internet portal, GPS device and SMS terminal.
The MCG-101 was designed to provide the most powerful and versatile Iridium communications system to offices, remote locations, aircraft, and maritime. The system provides an intelligent solution using the Iridium satellite network to operate as a telephone, internet gateway, intelligent GPS device, send/receive SMS, and attach to other devices through RS232 and ethernet.
The MCG-101 was designed using 100% digital technology. This enables the system to provide clear, true to life audio, and eliminates any internal echo problems. For external interface portions of the system, such an analog POTS telephone, echo cancellation is performed by a hardware echo canceler.
Overall, the MCG-101 is the ultimate Iridium telecommunications system available to fulfill the needs and demands of today’s business, marine, and military needs.More
