FAIRPORT, N.Y. – Bosch Security Systems, Inc. has introduced a new release of its central station receiver software designed to improve processing of alarm signals modified by Voice over IP (VoIP) or digital phone networks. The software’s patent-pending digital signal processing technology enhances the performance of receivers when interpreting these signals by more than 75 percent.
The new software improves the ability of Bosch’s Conettix D6600 and D6100i Communications Receivers to interpret control panel signals even if they do not meet the formatting requirements of the communications protocol. The receiver software analyzes the alarm signals to decode those that have been modified by VoIP or digital phone networks.
"Bosch is solving a significant challenge for alarm industry professionals with this software release," said Tom Mechler, product marketing manager, Bosch Security Systems, Inc. "Telephone networks have changed from traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN) to VoIP or digital networks, which has negatively affected alarm communications. This software update will help monitoring centers compensate for changes in their subscribers’ phone circuits without having to modify or replace system hardware."
Customers using the D6600 and D6100i Communications Receivers can download version 1.35 of the Conettix D6200 central station receiver software free of charge at www.boschsecurity.us.
