Globalink Cisco Linksys SPA9000 PBX Setup
The SPA9000 marries the rich feature set of
high-end PBX telephone systems with the convenience and cost advantages
of Voice over IP. It has common voice system features such as an
auto-attendant, shared line appearances, three way call conferencing,
intercom, music on hold, call-forwarding and much more. The SPA9000
opens up access to the benefits of VoIP, including low cost long
distance service, telephone number portability, and one network for both
voice and data.
The SPA9000 is so easy to configure that a fully
working system can be set up in minutes. New telephones are
automatically detected and registered when they are connected to the
SPA9000. The SPA9000 has an integrated web server that allow features to
be configured using a web browser. The web server has multiple levels of
password protected access to user and service level features. Service
level settings may be locked by the Internet Telephone Service Provider
to ensure they are not inadvertently corrupted. The Internet Telephone
Service Provider also can remotely update the software and settings
through a secure encrypted connection.
With its integrated router, the SPA9000 can be
either connected directly to the internet connection or to another
router on your network. The SPA9000 has separate WAN and LAN Ethernet
ports. The WAN connection can be connect through DHCP or a fixed IP
address. The LAN port can assign IP addresses to IP Phones and computers
using NAT and DHCP.
While the SPA9000 will work with any SIP
compatible IP Phone, it is the ideal host for Linksys IP Phones, such as
the SPA901, SPA921, SPA922, SPA941, and SPA942. Powerful configuration
capabilities enable the SPA9000 to support a greater set of advanced
features with these IP Phones, such as shared line appearances, hunt
groups, call transfer, call parking lot, and group paging. With its two
FXS ports, the SPA9000 can support traditional analog devices such as
telephones, answering machines, FAX machines, and media adapters.
