The three aspects
to consider are:- The voip
adapter, The Broadband/router, The Telephone system.
The Voip adapter.
We preset these for you. The KVA300
and KVA200200 both are very sophisticated devices with over 800 settings.
The good thing about this is they can be made to do almost anything. The
bad thing is that they require a lot of detailed knowlege especially to
make them work with a telephone system. We have spent many hours in learning
how to tune them to optimum performance with a range of specific popular
telephone systems. We have also tried a wide variety of VOIP service providers.
We have also learned how to make them behave so they can do many clever
tasks, the main ones are refered to on the Navigation bar. We not only
set up all this for your, we also set up your free VOIP telephone numbers
for you. The majority of telephone systems will work well with our adapters,
providing they meet the Telephone System Prerequisites.
AUTOPROVISIONING. Finally, but not least, our adapters
autoprovision themselves by refering to our own servers. This means that
if changes occur in the under-the-bonnet settings of the VOIP technology
from which you can benefit then your adapter will automatically download
them without you needing to do anything at all. Also, if you need to change
the way in which you use the sytem, (for example you may want to add a
remote extension or setup an autodivert) then we can do this without the
need for you to call out an engineer to return the equipment.
Each adapter will need to be connected
to a router which, in turn is connected to the broadband / adsl. The router
will need a spare port to take our adapter. We do not set this up and
you may need need to tell us the IP address of your router. (Most routers
are, in fact, set to DHCP - 'Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol' whereby
our Adapters are allocated their IP Address simply by you pluging them into
the Router). If you want advice about a suitable router, we can give it.
telephone system Prerequisites. The KVA300
needs 1 spare analogue trunk line port and 1 spare analogue
extension port from the PABX. As we have done all the Adapter setting up
prior to dispatch, you only need to concentrate on the pure telephony aspect
of wiring the Analogue line and extension ports to the Adapter.
Note, although you need a spare analogue trunk line port, you do not need
a spare analogue trunk line (the port is for connection to our adapter,
not an outside line). If you do not have a spare line or extension port,
you can either relinquish an exisiting on on your system or we may well
be able to supply you with second hand hardware at a very cost effect
price through our other division:
