The Company is continually active in adapting the Port infrastructures for its growth in activity. Under this framework, it invests in equipment and upgrading of infrastructures. The new telephone system will provide a proper answer to the growing communication needs of the Port.
The system provides an optimal solution, reliable and rich with features, answering the Ashdod Port Company’s needs and bridges between traditional technologies and the advanced ones while securing a long-range horizon of usage. The OPT61C switchboard is a hybrid switchboard combining traditional telephony (TDM) with IP telephony, and supports both line and wireless IP extensions. The system provides maximal availability – 99.999% of the time and has above 450 operational characteristics.
The telephony system is currently being assimilated into the Port’s switchboard in cooperation with the communication and control department and its head, Yehudah Nanikashvilli. The system, made by Nortel, was installed with the assistance of the Globe-Call Corporation.
