Altigen's Quantum Board
AltiGen's Quantum board is a comprehensive telecommunications platform that delivers unsurpassed power and flexibility in a single business communications system. When used in concert with AltiWare system software on a Windows NT Server, Quantum provides advanced PBX and voice-processing features. It can also be integrated over a LAN to deliver sophisticated computer telephony solutions. Trunks, extensions and voice-processing resources are all on the same Quantum board, accomplishing what normally would take multiple boards. Open software standards give you the power to leverage today's most innovative Computer Telephony applications. Quantum can even leverage the power of the Internet to expand your telecommunications solution worldwide for traveling and remote users.
Key Features and Benefits
  • All-in-one board platform using enhanced DSP technology to provide trunks, lines and voice-processing resources.
  • Unique DSP design provides full availability, scalability and true linear resource expansion.
  • Support for industry-accepted interface standards such as TAPI and MAPI.
  • Works with any standard analog telephone.
  • Backward Compatible with Quantum Rev. C boards.
