New Master Processor for G1E Plus
G1E Plus Transforms to G1E-GDS with New Master Processor Unit

A new Master Processor Unit (MPU) option is now available for the G1E Plus which when fitted grants the G1E Plus the same feature set as the Hybrex GDS.

Advanced programming options, IP connectivity, IP extension support, and many other options, are features of the GDS class of Hybrex systems. This functionality is now available for the G1E Plus when it is fitted with the new G1E-MPU.
Two forms of the new MPU are presented : the G1E-MPU1 which supports a single G1E+ cabinet, and the G1E-MPU4 which supports up to a 4 cabinet array.
Notable additions when a G1E-MPU is employed are: increase in IP trunk (ITU) capacity support; IP extension (ISU) support; IP connectivity - allowing easier programming, user programming options, remote support capability where provisioned, CTI capability; increases in system device support both in numbers and facility; and generally greater adaptability to customer needs via the availability of more complex system programming options. Essentially whatever can be set up on a GDS can be set up on this G1E-GDS - or G1E+M as it is technically named.

New Product Available for Field Trials : IP38-61 IP Keyphone

In line with the availability of the new IP Platform components, Hybrex is proud to announce the availability for field trials of the IP38-61 IP Keyphone.

As the name implies this phone is not a standard IP phone. It is a keyphone.
It has the same fascia and functionality as the Hybrex DK6 keyphone - with the exception that, being an IP phone, it can be situated anywhere power and a compatible broadband Internet, or intranet, connection is available.
It is in essence a globally portable system extension keyphone.
With full DSS/BLF 36 key array, 2 line display, function keys, handsfree and headset function, access to all host system functions such as : lines, standard call handling, conference, intercom, paging, voicemail, system and personal speed dial, and more - there is almost no difference between the IP38-61 and a keyphone in the host office.
What this means is that what used to be a difficult task : communications provisioning of your remote business workers such as teleworkers, home office, mobile site office, in fact any geographically remote personnel, is now easy, low cost, and full facility.

Transtel Systems Win FAA Contract
Note - relative to the following - Transtel systems and Hybrex systems are sister systems. The Transtel TDS is the same as a Hybrex GDS.

In early 2005 the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) went through an evaluation process in the Central US Region looking for a solution that could provide a solid Communications Platform for Air Traffic Control Towers and supporting offices. After extensive investigation of the products available and the solutions offered the FAA selected the TransTel TDS series PBX. This was due to the functionality and reliability of the TDS platform and the fact that TransTel was willing to design some special features and capabilities that the FAA required. TransTel's President Joe Morris states “Working with our dealer Key Telecommunications Solutions and the FAA has been a really terrific project. The FAA presented us with some real needs and requirements and we have taken the time to develop them for the FAA. An Air Traffic Control Tower here in the USA has some unique characteristics which we were happy to accommodate the FAA with. Backlit displays for the air traffic control tower, a thoughtful default database program suitable for FAA installations and some specialty tweaking for some tenanting requirements have helped to go a long way in the relationship. The overall objective of the FAA is to provide reliability for all installations and to allow for an efficient cost factor for each site. The TransTel TDS Series have delivered on both fronts. Our dealer goes the extra mile when installing these systems by putting in place state of the art power and lightning protection. Many of the sites to date have had no failures at all due primarily to the care taken at installation. As we look back to the installations already in place we are all proud of the performance of the systems and overall project.” After a rigorous set of field trails the FAA have approved the TransTel TDS PBX system as their standard “mission critical” platform for FAA Air Traffic Control Towers within the Central Region. Over the last three years TransTel Systems have been installed in other Air Traffic Control Towers along with supporting office locations, each and every solution had the commitment and support of the TransTel Team. Shown is the brand new state of the art $12 million Air Traffic Control Tower in Fort Wayne Indiana.
