The new CyberData SIP-enabled IP V2 Loudspeaker Amplifier is a Powered over Ethernet (PoE 802.3af or 802.3at) and VoIP paging device that provides an easy method for implementing an IP-based overhead paging system for both new and legacy installations.
With up to 25 watts of driving power (802.3at), the Amplifier provides direct drive of a standard Horn speaker and supports a line-out connector for connection to an external amplifier. The interface is compatible with most SIP-based IP PBX servers that comply with the SIP RFC 3261. For non-SIP environments, the Loudspeaker Amplifier can be configured to listen to multicast address and port number combinations to form paging zones.
The V2 Loudspeaker Amplifier can be configured as a Night Ringer with two SIP extensions. One extension can be assigned to a page group for auto answer paging. The second extension can be assigned to a First-to-Answer Night Ring group with IP phones. An audio ring file is activated when the second SIP extension of the Loudspeaker Amplifier is dialed. If any of the IP phones in the ring group is answered (or if the caller hangs up), the Loudspeaker Amplifier stops ringing.
