AlphaCom integration with A-B Systems

AlphaCom configuration of net routing related to the SIP connections from A and B Exigo controller require some attention to avoid issues with dual setup and arbitrary AlphaCom audio sourcing from A or B controller.

From AlphaSys version 12.4.2.3, AlphaCom can be configured to prioritize audio from A controller if the following requirements are meet.
If A controller fails the switch over from A to B audio will use approx 30 seconds.

AlphaCom Configuration Requirements:

  • Net routing from AlphaCom to A controller must use EVEN node number
  • Net routing from AlphaCom to B controller must use ODD node number
  • Node number of B controller must be larger than node number of A controller.
  • A and B Exigo controller must be configured with presiding node numbers.
    • Example:
    • Controller A = node 2 .
    • Controller B = node 3.
  • The AlphaPro Net routing flag "Exigo" must be used for A and B controller
  • The AlphaPro Net routing flag "Monitor trunk" must be used for A and B controller
  • Exigo must trigger the feature "118 Program Source" in AlphaCom for audio distribution to AlphaCom group(s). (Or local group call)

This function is available from Exigo 1.3 and newer.
