FAQs

  • Can I dial ISDN numbers from this device?

Yes, and you can create quick-dial buttons to dial with one touch of the screen. You’ll need to add the ‘Tel+’ feature to your sip.audio subscription in order to make ISDN calls.

 

  • 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.  Any station with a Comrex IP codec can receive SIP calls, once the unit has been configured with a SIP account.

 

  • Can I control the device without using the touchscreen?

Yes.  You can access it through its IP address from a nearby computer.

 

  • Can I receive inbound ISDN calls?

There is a way to receive an ISDN call via a pre-configured quick-dial button.  ISDN numbers are assigned dynamically on demand, or you can get your own LA area ISDN number with your sip.audio subscription.  A package including a 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 interviews 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 home hubs have ethernet sockets on the back.  You can use an extra long ethernet cable, or ‘Powerline’ adaptors where cable routing is not an option.
