Setting a static IP
Your router is using a range of IPs for DHCP. Setting a static IP within this range
might cause collision with a DHCP IP of another computer on your network.
For Example: the default DHCP range in a D-link router is 192.168.0.100 up to
192.168.0.199 in this case we may choose 192.168.0.205 or 206 etc.
Important!
1. After changing the IP PBX IP address to STATIC , you need to use the new
static IP when browsing to your PBX.
2. You may reset ti IP address to DHCP by RESTARTING the Unit with the SIP
CHIP DICONNECTED from the rear Panel

performing few simple actions.
This chapter will introduce you to common problems, and their solutions.
A.
B.
C.
D.
E.
F.
G.
H.
No incoming calls
No outgoing calls

This will allow you to receive incoming calls to a different source just until the problem is
completely solved.
To overcome this problem without directing calls to other source, kindly contact our
customer support.
B. Outgoing calls:
Quick fix:
a. Make sure you have internet connection in the extension you were dialing from, and
reset the device you use (IP phone, etc…) as needed.
b. contact our customer support to make sure the account you are using is active.
Tip: using a different dialing rule will allow you to make calls from your PSTN (if exist).
C. Sound quality:
a. Run a dual (upload + download) internet speed test. Minimum require= 30 KB per call.
b. Use a softphone program (X-lite, etc…) with the same account and on the same
network, and check if the quality is better.
c. Check the phone device you are using and make sure it is working well.
d. For any farther advice, contact our customer support.
D. Calls disconnect:

terminals support only 12 of them (0-9, * and #).
35
Echo Cancellation
Echo Cancellation is used in telephony to describe the process of removing echo from
a voice communication in order to improve voice quality on a telephone call. In
addition to improving quality, this process improves bandwidth savings achieved
through silence suppression by preventing echo from traveling across a network.
There are two types of echo of relevance in telephony: acoustic echo and hybrid echo.
Speech compression techniques and digital processing delay often contribute to echo
generation in telephone networks
FXO
Foreign eXchange Office: An FXO device can be an analog phone, answering
machine, fax, or anything that handles a call from the telephone company like AT&T.
They should also operate the same way when connected to an FXS interface. An FXO
interface will accept calls from FXS or PSTN interfaces. All countries and regions have
their own standards FXO is complimentary to FXS (and the PSTN).
FXS
Foreign eXchange Station: An FXS device has hardware to generate the ring signal
to the FXO extension (usually an analog phone).An FXS device will allow any FXO
device to operate as if it were connected to the phone company. This makes your
PBX the POTS+PSTN for the phone. The FXS Interface connects to FXO devices (by
an FXO interface, of course).
Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system
The IVR voice prompts direct users to enter their user ID, password and destination
number in order to make calls. Once the system validates the users they are
