Obtainable in both PCI (A104) and PCI Express (Sangoma A104E) form factors, The A104 provides up to 16.4Mbps of full duplex data throughput or 120 voice calls over four T1 and or E1 lines to support high performance PCI-based routing and telephony systems. Advanced clocking features allow E1 and T1 lines to be mixed with full synchronization. As part of Sangoma’s AFT range of products, the A104 makes use of the same high performance PCI interface that has been deployed in large quantities all over the world.
