Tracker 2740

 Product Family


The Tracker 2740 series is our entry level product in the Tracker platform. Each model in the series can run the full suite of Tracker applications but provide for different levels of connectivity. The 2740 family can do PBX data recording for either remote or on-site SMDR/CDR data and/or alarm collection. It can monitor call records for suspicious phone activity or critical alarm conditions and alert administrators. SMDR (Station Message Detail Recording) and CDR (Call Data Records) can both be performed via Ethernet or serial ports. The platform is Linux-based and supports SNMP Admin (IPFW Admin). Supports Ethernet VPN and serial communications via PPTP.
