What is a VoIP Gateway?
A VoIP gateway is a device that uses Internet Protocols to transmit and receive voice communications.
A VoIP Gateway is used to convert voice and fax calls, in real-time, between the traditional network (PSTN) and an IP network. Traffic coming in from the traditional network (PSTN) is fed through a VoIP gateway and converted to digital packets and sent to the IP network.
How to Use a VoIP Gateway?
VoIP gateways have been designed with different purposes, basically come in two types: Analog and Digital.
- Connect the VoIP phone system to the Analog Phones (Traditional)
- Connect the VoIP phone system to the traditional telephone networks (PSTN).
- Connect a VoIP phone system to The Digital voice lines
- Connect a PABX phone system (traditional) to an VoIP network.
How to access the web configuration?
- HX4E/MX8A/HX4G/MX8G Gateways start DHCP service by default, and automatically obtain an IP address on the LAN; you can use the factory-default gateway IP address if it is unable to be obtained (e.g. when connected directly with a computer).
- By default, the MX60E/MX120G uses a static IP address.
Enter the gateway IP address and verification code (case-insensitive) in the browser address bar (e.g. 192.168.1.203). You can enter the gateway configuration login interface by entering a password on the login interface:
- User = Admin
- Passwords = hx4
- Random code = i4Jt
- Finish = Login
