WARP Mobile PBX Product Specifications

Develop all your voice and data communication applications on a single telephony device using fixed-mobile convergence technology.

The PIKA WARPTM Mobile PBX Telephony Appliance is ideal for telephony application development of all kinds. This product provides a small, low-cost, integrated and reliable computer replacement for deployment of telephony applications in the Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) and Small/Medium Enterprises (SME) markets. Completely customizable, it is compatible with VoIP phones as well as analog sets. Unlike your typical computer or appliance, PIKA has covered all your customer’s traditional telephony requirements. The configuration of the WARP is modular and can include up to 2 additional connectivity modules in a combination of FXO / FXS / BRI / GSM plus VoIP stations and trunks. The PIKA WARPTM Telephony Appliance is designed to address businesses with up to 100 users.

For Asterisk developers looking for a hardware platform with Asterisk pre-integrated, the PIKA WARPTMAppliance is a cost-effective alternative for your small business customers. If you have some development expertise, you can add your own Asterisk-based application, add your own GUI, and brand the LCD screen with your own company logo and/or product name.

Further easing the development exercise is the PIKA-provided DAHDI interface to the telephony modules. This DAHDI interface will provide for a smooth integration with Asterisk and serves to maintain your development investment on other DAHDI based platforms.

The PIKA WARPTM Telephony Appliance has all your requirements covered:

  • Debian operating system and x86 architecture make for straightforward development
  • Fixed-mobile convergence means you can provide wireless voice (GSM, UMTS) and data (UMTS/3G, LTE/4G) to enterprise markets and remote/mobile work sites
  • Develop communications applications using Asterisk
  • Develop many applications including, fixed line, mobile and SIP PBX, IVR, dialer, call logging, etc. just as you would on your PC

We worked long and hard on the initial design of the WARP hardware platform to ensure reliability, longevity, and quality.

Here are a few of the procedures and tests that we completed during the design process:

  • We selected telephone interface chips that have a proven history of reliable operation in the field
  • The processor core was based on an established reference design from AMCC
  • We paid close attention to maintaining good signal integrity of all electrical signals to maximize noise immunity and prevent errors
  • We designed the digital circuits for worst case timing
  • We derated components for power and voltage ratings to ensure they would not be highly stressed so they would last longer
  • We included ESD protection devices on inputs to help protect the system from damage
  • We designed the plastic enclosure for the wide range of thermal loads expected and included a fan to ensure that thermal stress would be limited
  • We designed the telephony interfaces for, and verified that they met, regulatory interconnect requirements for US, Canada and Europe including lightning surge tests and ESD
  • We designed the product for, and verified that it would meet, regulatory safety requirements for US, Canada and Europe including drop test, impact test and power line cross test
  • We conducted long duration stress testing of hardware and diagnostic testing of software to ensure that operation would be stable over long periods of time
  • We verified that the product would operate correctly overstated, wide operating temperature range by running long duration diagnostic software stress tests at various operating temperatures
