Wideband IP Paging Adapter With Zone Control for Integrating Legacy Analog Amplifiers

The 8373 is a paging adapter for IP enabling zoned analog voice paging systems. The endpoint is a SIP interface to seamlessly bridge an analog paging system to VoIP. Common application environments include schools, hospitals, retail stores, etc.

AL8373

The 8373 is a PoE IP Zone Paging Adapter for integrating legacy voice paging systems into a hosted or premise UC environment as a third party SIP endpoint. The Adapter eliminates the need for a legacy zone controller, however, the 8373 can also be deployed to add page zones to an existing single zone system. Features include G.722 wideband support with isolated and balanced line output for optimum clarity and intelligibility without hum or noise.


To the network side, the 8373 is a SIP endpoint for easy integration with an IP telephone system. It is configured using the intuitive web interface or provisioning capabilities.


On the paging side, the 8373 provides balanced audio output using both an XLR connector and terminal block for easy connection to an amplifier, along with a dry contact closure if required by the amplifier.


The high voltage audio output of the amplifier is wired back to the 8373 and connected to up to three separate speaker zones using high current internal zone control relays. The zone control relays are activated appropriately prior to paging based on the SIP extension called, multicast IP address received, or keypad input. For scalability, multiple 8373 Paging Adapters can be used to support as many page zones as required from a single amplifier.

 


Further speech enhancement is provided by automatic level control, choice of frequency masks, and optional speech compression. Output level is compatible with consumer, commercial, and pro-audio amplifiers requiring either -10 dBm, 0 dBm, or +4 dBu line level.
Multicast capability allows scalability for multiple amplifiers as well as integration with any combination of Algo IP speakers/strobes/adapters (e.g. 8128, 8180, 8186, 8188, 8301, 8373) in zoned and large scale applications.

  • Network managed and supervised SIP and multicast endpoint
  • PoE (802.3af) for plug and play network connectivity
  • Eliminates narrowband FXS port or ATA and zone controller
  • Multicasting capability for scalability to add more zone coverage and include other IP endpoints


Features

  • Wideband G.722 codec support for HD Voice
  • Isolated and balanced audio output
  • Automatic level control
  • Internal zone control relays (3)
  • Multicast for cost effective scalability - mix with any number and variety of Algo speakers, strobes and/or paging adapters (e.g. 8128, 8180, 8186, 8188, 8301, 8373)
  • Multicast receive or broadcast capability

  • SNMP supervision
  • Multiple SIP registration for Page (50) extensions
  • UL/CSA, FCC, CE

 

Applications

  • IP voice paging for a school, campus, hospital, retail store, and office
  • Multicast wide area emergency, safety and security notification alerts (e.g., lockdown, evacuation, reverse evacuation, medical emergency, safety alert, etc.)
  • OSHA compliance
  • Scheduled or automated announcements. Using the Algo 8301 to multicast, announcements/tones can be played over any model of Algo IP speaker. For example, school (i.e., class changes, recess, playing an anthem, etc.), retail and healthcare announcements (i.e., store closing, visiting hours, etc.), and workplace shift changes, breaks, etc.
  • Combine with all variety of Algo visual and audible IP endpoints to create more comprehensive notification alerting solutions (e.g. 8128, 8180, 8186, 8188, 8301, 8373)
  • IP loud ringing to avoid missed calls in a higher noise environment where telephone ringing is difficult to hear
  • Play background music (e.g., multicast via 8301 music input)
