The 2-Slot MVP switch is 3 rack units in height. It can be configured with three different blade configurations: a single non-redundant blade (control & media on same blade), two non-redundant blades (one blade with control & media, the other with media only), or two redundant blades (control & media on both blades which reduces the capacity). Universal AC power supplies are built into the shelf. The 2-Slot MVP supports up to 400+ voice ports or 100+ user consoles (or any mix of the two) depending on configuration.
The 6-Slot MVP switch is 5 rack units in height and holds up to 4 media blades. All components of the 6-Slot MVP are fully redundant with no single point of failure. Media blades may be configured in pairs as redundant (greater reliability) or as non-redundant (greater port capacity). A fully populated 6-Slot switch supports up to 1750+ voice ports or 400+ user consoles, or any mix of the two.
The 14-Slot MVP switch is 13 rack units in height and holds up to 12 media blades. All components of the 14-Slot MVP are fully redundant with no single point of failure. Media blades may be configured in pairs as redundant (greater reliability) or as non-redundant (greater port capacity). A fully populated 14-slot switch has a maximum capacity of 5000+ voice ports or 1300+ user consoles, or any mix of the two.
MVP Dispatch Consoles
The CDI 22 features a 22 inch widescreen display in an all-in-one PC coupled with a DAP. This console was specifically developed with a large display to exhibit the full capabilities of the GTX graphical user interface. Each of the CDI-22’s 250 pages can be configured with any background image (map, ops floor layout) and augmented with text, color panels, and additional images (emblems, checklists, phone lists). Conference line keys can be placed anywhere on the page; they are not confined to a grid. In addition to administrator-defined pages, each console has 8 private user-definable “whiteboard” pages and access to 32 global whiteboard pages created by other console users. Up to four headsets (two dual jack boxes), a speaker, and footswitch can be connected to the DAP. The medical-grade all-in-one PC has a multi-touch capacitive touch screen and is VESA mountable. The CDI-22’s DAP connects to the MVP switch through an IP network only.
