New music on hold device provides live streaming audio for business phone on hold and overhead music systems.
Music On Hold System Connection
For a music on hold messaging system, the device connects to the internet to receive its 128kBps stream (192kBps for Brandi Music background retail business music service), and provides continuous audio to the phone system MOH port.
Connect to your internet router (or use the built-in wifi) and connect the audio output to your audio or phone system. Use optional volume control on the device.
This professional-grade audio player device is compatible with most phone systems. The output is ideal for the connection required by your phone system. The audio cable (included) connects to your phone system's MOH input. An audio adapter plug is included for systems using alternative connections.
You'll hear full quality sound from the internal audio processors.
The device is configured for you by Easy On Hold® technicians. The player can be used in DHCP mode, or assign a unique IP address.
- There is no web process or server on the unit.
- No serial connection is available.
- SSH is disabled by default.
- The known methods for hijacking a “black box” on the network will not work.
- USB port will not allow Linux commands.
- There are only three outgoing requests:
- To listen to the stream on a single server.
- A status request, which goes to the same server to report uptime (not a vague internet check, only that the one specific server is up)
- To get the correct time (port configurable).
Recommended: use a “guest” network or DMZ to simplify network settings.
- Onboard Speaker Push monitor button once to hear what's playing on channel one. Push again for channel 2; again for monitor off.
- Remote Updates Every device will check for updated software and firmware releases. No need to ever send the unit back for updates and upgrades.
- Failover In the event the internet connection is interrupted, this player will automatically switch over to music files on an attached USB drive, or will play internally-stored content. The device scans for a network connection contstantly and connects as soon as possible.
