Algo 8301 Paging Manager

The Algo 8301 is a PoE IP Paging Adapter for integrating analog voice paging systems into NocTel’s cloud-based VoIP environment as a SIP endpoint. Features include G.722 Wideband HD voice support with isolated and balanced line output for optimum clarity and intelligibility without hum or noise. The 8301 also features a Scheduler for automating the playing and multicasting of WAV file tones, bells, announcements, music, etc.. The Scheduler uses the NTP server to synchronize with IP clocks, and is ideal for schools (i.e. class changes, recess, etc.), retail and healthcare announcements (e.g. store closing, visiting hours, etc.), and workplace shift changes, breaks, etc.. 1GB of memory is available for storing WAV files. The 8301 supports RTP multicast and Polycom Group Page.

An audio input (also balanced and isolated to prevent equipment ground loops) can be used for auxiliary input or insertion of the 8301 between existing equipment. This allows IP based paging or emergency notification to take control of the amplifier as necessary.

Multicast capability allows scalability for multiple amplifiers as well as integration with any number of Algo IP speakers, strobes and adapters (e.g. 8128, 8180, 8186, 8188, 8301, 8373) for a complete voice paging system.
