Small Community Networks

For Small Community Networks VCM modules are required in all systems being connected. The IP lines should be configured to connect the IP Offices in a star configuration, however the data network itself can be meshed. Also the names and numbers (groups, line, services, etc) on the separate IP Office systems should be unique to reduce potential maintenance confusion.
Each IP Office system broadcasts UDP messages on Port 50795. These broadcasts typically recur every 30 seconds but BLF updates are potentially more frequent. There are no updates if there is no activity and the overall level of traffic is very low – typically less than 1 kbps per system.
