The TwinStar configuration (P/N TS2000 or TS3000)
is a bundled product, comprised of two module-less servers, based
on the Xorcom XE series IP-PBX, that have been optimized for use as
a failover system.

connected via USB 2.0 to an Astribank. The Astribank firmware
continually replicates the server data in real time, performs
failure checks, and switches all telephony control to the backup
server, if necessary.
TwinStar System Description
TwinStar provides full redundancy for a complete PBX system,
including telephony interfaces.A sophisticated automatic
replication and detection mechanism located in the Astribank
detects server failure and switches all telephony to the backup
server, keeping downtime to an absolute minimum. The firmware-based
switching mechanism is not network-dependent.
How to Determine the Right TwinStar Redundant Server
Configuration for Your Implementation
The servers used in the TwinStar configuration are either the
"_blank">XE2000 or the "http://www.xorcom.com/catalog/xe3000.html" target=
"_blank">XE3000. The former meets the requirements of
smaller installations, supporting up to 200 users and 45
concurrent calls. The latter is more robust, supporting up to
1000 users and 480 concurrent calls. To complete the
configuration, select the relevant Astribank model(s) based
on the telephony interface requirement (the number of analog and
digital ports and trunks to be supported) + the appropriate
Xorcom's Complete Concierge (integrated PBX + PMS interface
for hospitality) does not support a TwinStar configuration.
