RoIP has designed an
embedded appliance for reliably running the RoIP software This platform contains
no moving parts (including no cooling fans), requires no maintenance, and is
designed for several years of trouble-free operation. Each embedded computer
contains the full suite of RoIP software, software license, and handles all
logic and audio processing on-board. All that is required is the interface
wiring to your radio equipment.
embedded solution was designed to overcome several problems that the PC solution
presented. These problems were due to the cooling fans, hard drives, and power
requirements of a full PC.
The embedded solution
comes with a full warranty, on the embedded appliance, software, and hardware
RoIP also provides a
solution to users who wish to install the software on their own PCs. You can install the
software and interface hardware yourself, and license the system on a per-PC basis.
Most PC based systems can be built from obsolete computer hardware and can be found at a
fraction of the cost of a new PC. Although PCs require more maintenance
than the embedded solution, they are a more economical solution when 99% reliability
is not a requirement.
