Comrex announced the completion of a major upgrade to its popular BRIC Traversal Server (or BRIC-TS) service for ACCESS and BRIC-Link IP audio codecs. The newly retooled service has been rebranded Comrex Switchboard Traversal Server.
Switchboard TS for audio is a feature that allows for presence notification, status and connection help (NAT Traversal) via a cloud-based service which is free to use for Comrex ACCESS IP codec customers. The feature is included in all Comrex ACCESS IP Audio codecs and can be unlocked on Comrex BRIC-Link codecs for a small license unlock fee.
Comrex will be migrating all existing BRIC-TS accounts to the new Switchboard TS on 1/28 and the changeover will be seamless for existing users. While customers will experience an improved graphical user interface, they should note two main improvements to the management tools in Switchboard. Specifically, “Contact Lists” and “Shares” have simplified the task of managing large fleets of ACCESS and BRIC-Link codecs.
