Linksys SPA9000 PBX

The SPA9000 marries the rich feature set of high-end PBX telephone systems with the convenience and cost advantages of Voice over IP. It has common voice system features such as an auto-attendant, shared line appearances, three way call conferencing, intercom, music on hold, call-forwarding and much more. The SPA9000 opens up access to the benefits of VoIP, including low cost long distance service, telephone number portability, and one network for both voice and data.

The SPA9000 is so easy to configure that a fully working system can be set up in minutes. New telephones are automatically detected and registered when they are connected to the SPA9000. The SPA9000 has an integrated web server that allow features to be configured using a web browser. The web server has multiple levels of password protected access to user and service level features. Service level settings may be locked by the Internet Telephone Service Provider to ensure they are not inadvertently corrupted. The Internet Telephone Service Provider also can remotely update the software and settings through a secure encrypted connection.

With its integrated router, the SPA9000 can be either connected directly to the internet connection or to another router on your network. The SPA9000 has separate WAN and LAN Ethernet ports. The WAN connection can be connect through DHCP or a fixed IP address. The LAN port can assign IP addresses to IP Phones and computers using NAT and DHCP.

While the SPA9000 will work with any SIP compatible IP Phone, it is the ideal host for Linksys IP Phones, such as the SPA901, SPA921, SPA922, SPA941, and SPA942. Powerful configuration capabilities enable the SPA9000 to support a greater set of advanced features with these IP Phones, such as shared line appearances, hunt groups, call transfer, call parking lot, and group paging. With its two FXS ports, the SPA9000 can support traditional analog devices such as telephones, answering machines, FAX machines, and media adapters.

Interoperability - SPA 941 IP Phone Configuration guide to work with SPA 9000

Linksys SPA 941 IP Phone is designed to inter-operate with SPA 9000. When a SPA 941 connects into the same Local Area Network that a SPA 9000 resides, it will sync-up with it. You do not need to configure either device for them to identify each other. SPA 941 ships with 2 extensions and can be upgraded to 4.

Step 1 After power-up, obtain the IP address of the SPA 941 by pressing the MENU button on the phone Globalink Cisco Linksys SPA9000 PBX Setup
and the number 9 on the keypad.

Step 2 Enter the IP address of the SPA 941 in your browser, click on the Admin and then, the Advanced link.

Step 3 If this is the 1st SPA 941 connected to the LAN that the SPA 9000 is connected, User ID of 100 is automatically assigned by the SPA 9000 to this phone's EXT 1. You can see this in the USER ID field of EXT 1. No password is needed or assigned. If you connect a 2nd SPA 941 to the network, EXT 1 of the 2nd SPA 941 will show 101 and so on.
