Release info

Name: VSF-Turbine
Description: VSF-Turbine is a firmware archive for Zenitel devices based on the IMX28 processor.

The firmware is delivered in a ZIP archive:.

  • vsft-5.1.x.x - Used for standard in-field upgrades

Date: 14.02.2020
Status: General Availability Compatibility: Pulse to IC-EDGE System
You can upgrade from Pulse (VS-IS 4.x) to IC-EDGE, but the whole system needs to run with the same Turbine software (VS-IS 5.1).
In an IC-EDGE System, INCA intercoms cannot be used as the Edge Controller.
TCIV video intercoms should not be used as the Edge Controller for systems exceeding 4 devices.
IMT 1.5 can be used for station discovery and upgrade but must not be used to configure IC-EDGE.
Pulse to IC-EDGE Licenses
Pulse licenses will be honored in an IC-EGDE System. This means that when you upgrade firmware from VS-IS 4.x to 5.x your Pulse licenses will work for IC-EDGE.

Note icon The number of free VS station licenses has been increased from 16 to 32 in IC-EDGE. This means that you get an additional 16 VS stations to connect to in IC-EDGE

Note icon Both Multisite Trunking and VS-Client are free of charge in IC-EDGE


New Features - Turbine Intercom

PHIX-139 Mobile App

Zenitel Mobile is supported on iOS and Android platforms. Zenitel Mobile is part of the Edge system and it can be added to all Zenitel Edge System using configuration tool on Edge Controller web page. Zenitel mobile will have SIP account on the Edge Controller. In Edge 1.1. release Zenitel Mobile will work in so-called local mode - where mobile app is connected to the local network to receive and make audio and video calls. Zenitel mobile app will be licensed using Edge licensing system. Grace license supports up to 10 mobile app registrations on Edge Controller.

PHIX-141 Implemented support for IPv6

IPv6 is now supported in SIP mode. IPv6 address and DNS address can be configured using one of the follow methods:

  • Stateless Addresss AutoConfiguration (SLAAC) with Network Discovery Recursive DNS Server (RDNSS)
  • Stateful DHCPv6
  • Stateless DHCPv6
  • Static Address Assignment configured from web

The options are chosen based on Router Advertisement with the exception of Static Address assignment.
Default setting is IPv4

  • Tftp provisioning does not work with IPv6

PHIX-142 External communication - Suppport telephony calls in Edge Controller

The IP Telephony Service allow calls from an IC-EDGE site to public telephones without need to use additional hardware such as MP-114 gateways. IC-Edge connects to a SIP trunk provider which has access to telephony calls.

  • Max number of concurrent calls: 2

PHIX-299 ENA in SIP mode

Exigo Network Amplifiers now support operation in SIP mode. Main features:

  • Two addressable speaker channels per amplifier (Two SIP accounts)
  • Separate SIP account to connect local microphone to SIP server
  • Multicast paging for background music
  • Extended monitoring services included speaker line, power, temperature, fan, input and network monitoring
Note icon There are some limitations in SIP mode for the Exigo amplifiers. These are:
  • Triggering of outputs and relays
  • Support for backup amplifier
  • Syslog reporting
  • TFTP provisioning


PHIX-119 Audio messages are now configurable via Edge Controller

Audio messages are now configurable via Edge Controller on Turbine stations.

PHIX-120 New default view for Edge and SIP mode

The default view on the web interface for Edge is now more similar to the Edge controller. For devices in SIP mode, the web interface has also been simplified some. User is able to switch to old, advanced, view on Recovery tab under Main settings

PHIX-293 Improved recovery handling for Exigo amplifiers in SIP mode (RTP timeout)

The default behavior for how an Exigo amplifier in SIP mode shall handle calls when it does not receive RTP data has changed. Old default behavior was that the call would not disconnect if RTP data was not received. New behavior is that call will disconnect if RTP data is not received over a period of 20 seconds. The new behavior applies to all Exigo Network Amplifiers. Factory reset required to get the new value applied.

MTN-1380 Software version included in SIP header

Software version included in SIP header to make it easier to identify which version is running on a given IP station.

MTN-1978 It is now possible to call multiple cell phones in sequential ringlists.

This is possible by adding pause parameter in seconds on ringlist entry. Eg. 91523524:pause=5.

MTN-2298 Changed relay naming for IP-LCM

Changed relay naming to be consistent across all the different pages for IP-LCM.

MTN-2460 Common CA certificates are now bundled with station

Regsitering to SIP providers in cloud should now work with TLS without needing to upload certificates. This assumes the SIP providers use certificates from trusted root CAs:

MTN-2623 IC-Edge/SIP support for MP114 speech start/stop event

Implemented handling for SPEECH START/END signalling from MP114 gateway. Can configure a timeout on speech end to cause call to end.

MTN-2684 Added basic support for SNMP v3

  • Group Call is now excluded from call ringing event.

MTN-2444 ONVIF device model for TCIV-5

ONVIF will now correctly return model type for TCIV-5 stations.
