In 5 minutes flat, without training, the Base Camp Connect boots up to ensure continuity by automatically connecting to available networks, based on pre-set priorities. The PBX voice system works on legacy 2G & 3G cellular networks, but also on SAT networks. Moreover, legacy PSTN lines can be connected to provide network access, as well as IP networks for Voice Over IP (VOIP) communications, using the Base Camp Connect data system.
Single Inbound Number
A built-in PBX phone system with a unique single inbound number is at the core of each Base Camp Connect Emergency communications go-kit. The single inbound number allows the chain of command to reach the team on the ground regardless of the backhaul network they are using. This not only increases the operational efficiency of the operations but ensures also constant communications when networks fail or are unpredictable. That number does not change and is independent of networks. On top of that, up to 5 Base Camp Connect units can be linked together to become extensions of each other.
No need to replace current extensions, each Base Camp Connect is built to order to incorporate current equipment (cordless / IP / Digital / Analog phones, radios, and softphones) and link the conversations to Telecommunications Service Providers (TSP) & Internet Service Providers (ISP), switching automatically depending on network availability.
A radio bridge is also built-in to allow phone to radio conversations. Available in Vox-activated or secure cellular PTT to radio versions, this feature creates interoperability between different platforms.
Classified units of the BCC-MIL have an additional physical unit added: the Redcom Slice 2100. The REDCOM SLICE is a purpose-built call and session controllers designed to meet the low-SWaP, deployable communications requirements of military and defense organizations. It is designed to be fully scalable between both tactical and strategic networks and delivers maximum interoperability between multiple interfaces and protocols including SIP, AS-SIP, Secure Devices, V.150.1, GSM, Radio, SATCOM, ISDN PRI, Euro PRI, IPv4, IPv6, and Magneto.
REDCOM’s SLICE platforms have been fully tested and certified as Local Session Controllers by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) and are listed on the DISA Approved Products List.
