Digital transformation is an umbrella touching all points of technology. The cloud and VoIP are charging onto the scene, but in this age of innovation change still poses a challenge – especially in terms of investment of legacy hardware. The transition of business communications from legacy to IP need not be herculean.

This week Grandstream took the wraps off the HT813, the newest addition to the HT series of Analog Phone Adapters. The HT813 Featuring an FXS port to introduce fax machines and analog phones to VoIP services.

The release touts an FXO port for call termination and interfacing with PSTN networks, and features user friendly and flexible auto-provisioning options as well as advanced security. LEDs make for ease of use as port indicators.

The HT813 includes the below:

  • Support for up to 2 SIP profiles through 1 FXS port and FXO port
  • Advanced telephony functions including 3-way conferencing, T.38 fax-over-IP, wide range of caller ID formats, carrier-grade line echo cancellation, and more
  • In addition to the full feature set of a PSTN/FXO gateway, the device offers Lifeline support in case of power outage (FXS port will be hard-relayed to FXO port in case of power outage)
  • Strong security protection including unique security certificate per unit
  • Automated and secure provisioning options using TR069 and XML config files
  • Exceptional voice quality with support for wideband HD codec such as Opus, G.722 and all the popular narrow band voice codec such as G.711, G.729, G.723, G.726, iLBC, etc.
  • Redundant SIP server failover and dual firmware image for enhanced reliability

The cost of transformation is quite tangible, so instead of making it truly penal, get the most out of legacy investment. While it’s VoIP or bust, it doesn’t have to break the bank.
