UAV VoIP Gateway Software
VOCAL’s UAV VoIP gateway software solution is ideal for low power and low bandwidth communications and video surveillance applications used with Unmanned Aircraft (UA) as well as ground and naval systems. The VoIP gateway provides a standards-based product with an extensive features list that can be configured for different payloads, waveforms and missions.
The UAV VoIP Gateway converts between bi-directional or broadcast audio, video and radio applications and IP networks over a VoIP connection using SIP or RTSP. Media streams are transmitted using RTP. The gateway accepts audio, video and radio communications from a wireless (or wired) network for output to the corresponding UAV on-board device.
Our UAV VoIP Gateway design can be used in numerous UA/UAV/UAS applications, including:
- Aerial surveillance and communications relay for search and rescue
- Law enforcement
- Tactical communications relay for a MANET connecting radio networks and other UAVs
- Data collection and relay of remote SCADA systems used for security monitoring and environment management.
- Wireless Access Points (AP) and backhaul to the core network for cellular networks
VOCAL ensures UAV/UAS compatibility and interoperability testing using many VoIP providers. Our VoIP software works seamlessly with servers from Cisco, NetCentrex, Quintum, Asterisk, 3CX, OpenSIPS, FreeSwitch and other vendors. Device configuration can be completely managed using a web interface. For further information regarding compatibility and interoperability testing, please contact us.
UAV Sensor Configurations
VOCAL’s UAV VoIP gateway can be configured with a variety of sensors for air, ground and naval unmanned vehicles for remote sensing, search & rescue, agriculture and other commercial applications.
Our VoIP solution supports radio and video devices typically used in unmanned aerial vehicle applications as well as other devices such as microphones, loudspeakers and even displays.
Specialized devices for remote sensing can also be supported using VoIP protocols to transmit sensor data.
