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.

Algo Paging & Alerting in Analogue Environments

Whilst we all know the many benefits of VoIP, there are certain situations where customers don’t want to upgrade existing PA systems. This could be down to the complexity of upgrading or a lack of resources and knowledge of the products that are available. Analogue systems are sometimes overly complicated to implement, and most VoIP installers shy away from it. But it doesn’t have to be that way, with Algo’s product range implementing and integrating IP paging is easy.

Algo 8301 IP Paging Adaptor

Ideal for use in hospitality or public sector environments, the 8301 can be applied to an existing analogue system and convert it to integrate with most VoIP systems – giving your customers the advantages of an IP system at a fraction of the cost.

On top of this, the 8301 can also add enhanced features such as multicast, music streaming and scheduling of pre-recorded messages to the system.

Algo 8180 SIP Alerter

Unlike traditional paging speakers, the 8180 is powered via PoE, removing the need for excessive cabling. This can integrate with the 8301 or link up with any SIP based IP phone system to offer an all-round solution which can be remotely managed online.

Both the Algo 8180 and 8301 have a relay input enabling you to add a connection to an emergency button which can be used in emergencies to trigger a voice alarm.

Algo 8301 Multicast Line IN Audio

This guide is designed to show how to make an Algo 8301 multicast the audio it receives on the Line IN or AUX IN ports.

In this guide we will use two Algo 8301 units, the first as the Multicast sender and the second as the multicast receiver.

Configuring the Multicast Sender

Log in to the Algo 8301 Web GUI and change the following settings:

  • Basic Settings > Multicast
    • Multicast Mode = Master/Sender
    • Multicast Type = Regular (RTP)
    • Master Single Zone = Music
  • Additional Features > Input/Output
    • Audio Always On = Enabled
    • Audio Input Port = Aux IN or Line IN (depending on what port you are wiring your audio source to)

Configuring the Multicast Receiver

Log in to the second Algo 8301 Web GUI and change the following settings:

  • Basic Settings > Multicast
    • Multicast Mode = Slave/Receiver
    • Multicast Type = Regular (RTP
    • Basic Slave Zones = Tick “Music” box.

Thats It! Couldn’t be simpler. In my test, I chose the Audio Input Port as the Aux IN port, then connected my mobile phone using a normal AUX cable. I then connected some PC speakers to the Aux OUT port on the second Algo 8301.


When I played the music on my phone, it was played out over the speakers plugged in to the second Algo, which was receiving the audio over multicast.

This would be a great way to take an audio input source in one location, and broadcast the message across a large site with multiple speaker groups.
