Encartele is a leading provider of inmate telephone services.
VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol technology is used by Encartele inmate telephone service for providing voice communication to correctional facilities. Multiple data/switching centres’ are used along with networks in order to process and rout calls made by inmates. The service provides a centralized solution and offers a system of high-level redundancy that the user can access with complete security provided for data management.
Encartele’s data and switching systems are located in highly secure and environmentally safe data centers with direct fiber network connections to the network.
All system management is performed via internet based web portal and access is available anywhere there is an internet connection.
The switching centers are perfectly synchronized with one another and the phone system offered to prisons is very reliable and efficient. Authorized personnel, including affiliated government agencies such as the US Marshall Service, FBI, ATF etc, can access the inmate telephone system from anywhere. The system allows retrieving call detail records, restrict/allow numbers and monitoring live calls from any computer with an internet connection.
Encartele has switching centers that are designed to provide continuous service even if part of the infrastructure goes down. This is achieved through routing between the gateway equipment and switching centers. All gateways are programmed to watch both switching centers when processing calls. In the event if a particular switching center is not available, the gateway will automatically redirect to the other switching center. This method of delivering services greatly increases the network availability and reliability.
