Tactical C2 Voice Switch

Cornet Technology’s TVCS InterConnect Omni (TVCS Omni) is a JITC certified, highly
compact communications, conferencing, and interconnect solution. The TVCS Omni provides
conferencing and any-to-any voice connectivity for the military, homeland security, and
first-responders.

The TVCS OMNI is a black voice conferencing switch that delivers a hybrid (IP and TDM) architecture based on an industry-standard IP networking framework.  Its compact, all-in-one, chassis supports up to 128 IP/VoIP devices, up to 48 POTS FXS/trunk FXO/E&M connections, and up to 4 T1/E1 PRI interfaces, in any combination.  The user experience is driven by the TVCS’s user-friendly Human Machine Interface (HMI) that enables operators to establish two-party calls, create or join conferences, or participate in multiple conferences with equal ease. 

The TVCS Omni connects operators with operators (intercom), and devices such as COMSEC equipment, military radios, land line phones, and PBX in two-party or multi-party conferences.
