USB mic, headphones and ethernet cable required. Consider a starter package.

FAQs

  • Which US radio stations can call me?

iHeartRadio have refurbished all of their radio markets with SIP receiving equipment from which they can dial your codec’s SIP address.  Other stations are rapidly following suit.

An easy way for radio stations to call SIP codecs is to dial the SIP address from the dial pad in ipDTL.

 

  • Can I make outbound SIP or ISDN calls?

As the name suggests, the USB SIP Codec ‘Zero’ is designed to be ‘zero configuration’.  It arrives pre-configured, and the user simply switches the microphone on and off.  Technically savvy users can access it through its IP address from a nearby computer, or attach a monitor, keyboard and mouse.  Outbound calls can be established using these methods. An additional Tel+ subscription is required for outbound ISDN calls.

 

  • Can I receive inbound ISDN calls?

There is a way to receive an ISDN call when accessing the USB SIP Codec’s configuration page via the methods mentioned above.  ISDN numbers are assigned dynamically on demand, and are therefore not available in advance. So, while this is possible, we only recommend this to users who understand and can work around these limitations.  An additional Tel subscription is required for inbound ISDN calls.

 

  • Can I connect the USB SIP Codec to the internet using wifi?

No. Wi-Fi or mobile broadband are the most common causes of radio remotes dropping off. To ensure reliability and confidence in the platform, we make no apology for insisting that our USB SIP Codec is connected to your broadband router using a physical cable.  Almost all routers have ethernet sockets on the back.  We can supply extra long cables, or ‘Powerline’ adaptors where cable routing is not an option.
