The new firmware v2.16.120 was launched by Tieline Technology with new features for the Bridge-IT and Bridge-IT XTRA decoders. This includes support for dual IP streaming of SmartStream PLUS.
Tieline has integrated the creation of programs in the user interface for web browser in the HTML5 utility box for all Bridge-IT decoders. This was necessary because the most popular browsers currently no longer support Java, therefore firmware prior to v2.16.120 will no longer support the old Java-based utility box. This change also resolves the connectivity problems experienced by some users due to frequent Java updates.
The new utility software will run on Windows, Mac and Linux computers, expanding the number of devices that engineers can use to configure the programs.
Other features of the new firmware include support for SNMP; deterministic SIP routing and improvements in SIP security features; decoder call identification; rapid dialing improvements; support for SSL digital certificates; and firmware updates and system backup using an SD card.
