SKU SPA-9000-I

Availability: Discontinued. Please note that the Linksys SPA-9000 IP PBX has been discontinued. We recommend the Xorcom XR1000 6 FXS 2 FXO IP PBX as a good alternative.

The SPA-9000 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 SPA-9000 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 SPA-9000 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 SPA-9000. The SPA-9000 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 SPA-9000 can be either connected directly to the internet connection or to another router on your network. The SPA-9000 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 telephones and computers using NAT and DHCP.

While the SPA-9000 will work with any SIP compatible IP telephone, it is the ideal host for Linksys business telephones, such as the SPA901, SPA921, SPA922, SPA941, and SPA942. Powerful configuration capabilities enable the SPA-9000 to support a greater set of advanced features with these telephones, such as shared line appearances, hunt groups, call transfer, call parking lot, and group paging. With its two FXS ports, the SPA-9000 can support traditional analog devices such as telephones, answering machines, FAX machines, and media adapters.
