Tested/Guaranteed • Excellent Condition • Fully Working • 2-Channel AoIP/VoIP Broadcast Console Interface • G722 Wideband Audio Capable
Item is in excellent cosmetic condition. It has been tested to confirm that it works as it should. A 115/230V auto power supply is included. Factory defaults have been restored - IP address is set by DHCP and the log on is admin:admin.
This is probably one of the neatest devices that I have tested. It allows a studio to send and receive calls over the internet so no traditional copper line pair needs to be rented, and the studio location can be anywhere that has an internet connection. So calls can be taken at home and remote studios just as easily as at your main location.
Usually Sells for $1,092
As an example of how versatile this unit is, you could set up Channel 1 as an incoming "Request" phone line using a basic SIP account which has a phone number associated. In that mode the unit operates like a traditional POTS hybrid but the audio quality in most cases should be better as the send and receive signals are not combined for the purposes of being transmitted via the same copper path. As no physical phone line is needed there is no monthly line rental payable.

And set up Channel 2 as a Wideband Connection using a G.722 codec to send and receive a low latency, broadcast quality, 7KHz speech signal to/from web browser/smartphone/HD Phone etc. In my testing this sounded great and could be a backup or replacement to ISDN for occasional speech contributors (eg, weather, traffic, horoscopes etc). Again, the system is location-independent so the studio and contributor could be anywhere where an internet connection is available. I use OnSip in my testing which is a free service, so maybe worth considering as an alternative to landlines and ISDN interfaces if you are under budgetary constraints.
Notes: There is a fairly steep learning curve to this device so I recommend that you read the manual to understand what's involved in configuring this device. If you have set up SIP phones before then that will make the task much easier. A copy of screenshots taken during my testing is provided below to give you an idea of how the device is configured.
The unit ships set to the factory defaults so the IP address will initially be assigned via your DHCP server, and the log on credentials will be admin:admin.
