Each MX system is shipped with a commercial quality hard disc drive. This HDD stores the system’s operating software, voice mail messages and call recording sessions, user and automated attendant prompts and greetings, and customer-defined system configuration files. For those clients wishing to protect their investment against disc failure, the optional RAID-1 HDD and software may be equipped. Unlike other systems that merely provide back-up of system configuration programming, all operations and files associated with the deployed MX is protected. Should one hard drive fail the system will continue to operate with the remaining hard drive without any service interruption or data loss.
Redundant Power Inputs
The MX system is normally powered via connection to a suitable 110-240 VAC power outlet. In the event of commercial power failure, the system may be protected against outage by deploying the BPS12 battery power supply. This compact but powerful unit is capable of powering not only the MX system itself, but also any peripheral devices that may be installed, such as data switches, music on hold sources, and paging equipment. Weighing under 70 pounds (35 Kg), the BPS12 is lightweight enough for 19′ rack mounting, and provides vented convection cooling to minimize damage that is possible in over-heated equipment closets or crowded server rooms.
Dual 10/100Base Ethernet Ports
Two Ethernet ports are provided by each MX system. These two ports can be used to protect your phone communications against IP network failures. In this bridged configuration, the MX system remains fully operational should there be a failure to the original LAN connection provided to the MX.
