The Intertex IX66
This post on the Voxilla Forums pretty much sums up why I like my IX66 and, even though it’s pricy, why it’s worth looking into getting.
I have the IX66 with the SIP Switch and get the following benefits
- Absolutely no set up to do, port opening, STUN, or Nat traversal, every device (SPAs, Cisco phones, softphones work straight off, as do multiple service providers)
- No excessive traffic due to frequent re-registrations due to STUN and NAT Traversal
- My email address is also my SIP Address, (ie [email protected] rather than [email protected] mine to keep forever, even if I change service provider)
- Where every I am in the world I can register on my IX66 via an internet connection and make and receive calls
- I host my own SIP domains (currently 3) (just like hosting websites)
- Least cost routing is very simple, the IX66s dialplan routes calls from my 7960s or analogue devices via my SPA-3000
- My father-in-law 60 miles away has a SIP domain (also his email address) hosted on my IX66, and he can share my outbound minutes and call me by dialling a single digit, as I can him
- Family and friends in the UK can call local numbers to them, and reach my where every I am. I’ve even got a New York number that forwards to my SIP address.
- Call forwarding, the IX66 can simply divert calls to say my mobile (using the dialplan and the cheapest service provider)
- Also, itâs a really effective stateful inspection firewall, router, DSL modem with two Ethernet ports (great for providing separate NATed and DMZ zones), SIP Proxy & SIP PBX.
- Whatâs it missing, just voicemail
Best bit of hardware Iâve bought in years.
