Introduction to IP Paging & Alerting Solutions by Algo

Why expand your portfolio to IP paging and alerting?

It’s easy! If you’re already selling IP handsets this is a great way for you to expand and offer your customer a broader solution. With everything running on VoIP, the set up is simple and all configurable remotely through a web interface.

Within the Algo range you have IP alerters which can be used as loud ringers, security and notification alerting. Whatever the site, whether it’s a warehouse, retail, education or even outdoors, Algo has a speaker designed for you. From a standard small indoor loud ringer, to an IP66 rated horn speaker or even a discretely designed ceiling speaker, here you will find something to suit your requirements.

If you are looking for an alerting device but don’t want audio you can make use of Algo’s visual alerter which is provided with various colour options, multiple flash patterns and intensity levels all of which are designed to give you the flexibility you need to make your solution just right.

Algo’s IP paging solution is also just as simple, sitting between your platform/PBX and speakers, the paging adaptor acts as its own little server. You have the functionality to schedule announcements, play music, make emergency announcements and more.

In addition, Algo’s paging solution enables the transformation of existing analogue systems into an IP paging solution. Simply keep the existing amps and speakers and use the IP paging adaptor to speak to the PBX. With the added flexibility of being able to accommodate zoned paging, you should find you’ve got all options here to put together the solution you need.

We recently conducted a webinar discussing Algo’s IP Paging and Alerting Solutions. If you missed out on the day, not to worry, you can catch up on the recording below.

What’s New? 3CX Standard & Free Licences

As you may be aware, 3CX are changing their free and standard licences as of 1st April 2019. In order to help you prepare for these changes, we will be putting together a series of blogs which will break down the changes for you.

Changes to Standard Licences:

As part of the revamp, some features are being removed from Standard licences, these include:

  • Call recording
  • Call reporting
  • Queues
  • Office 365 Integration
  • Bridges

These features will remain available on Pro and Enterprise level licences. If you are already on a paid version of the Standard licence and still have valid maintenance you do not need to do anything, your licences will be upgraded to Pro free of charge for the remainder of the licence contract. Following the licence duration, you will need to renew your licence via Pro maintenance to maintain these features.

Changes to Free Version

All free licences downloaded from 3CX’s website after 1st April 2019 will be a V16 Pro annual licence. This licence will be valid for 40 days from the initial activation date. Following this, the licence key will then revert to a standard licence unless it is upgraded.

ProVu can also now help you source a proof of concept key for any licence for 30 days. Simply contact our sales team to discuss your projects and organise a free trial key.

New Licence Sizes

There are a number of new licence sizes coming to annual licences (only), giving you even more options to cater for customers whose requirements fall somewhere in between, these include:

  • 24 SC
  • 48 SC
  • 96 SC
  • 192 SC
