Data Sheets


Telephony Interfaces

For legacy PBXs, a Spectralink 8000 Telephony Gateway converts the IP traffic from the wireless telephones to digital or analog signals, which connect directly to PBX line cards. For IP PBXs no gateway is necessary; the handsets integrate directly via Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) or a proprietary IP interface.

QoS Server

A Spectralink Voice Priority (SVP) Server may be used to manage prioritisation of voice packets and provide the required Quality of Service (QoS) on the wireless network or customers may choose to run other supported QoS options, such as Wi-Fi standard QoS or Cisco CCXv4, instead of SVP.
