Is the Cisco SPA112 IPv6 ready?
Q: Is the Cisco SPA112 IPv6 ready? What other ATA adapters do you sell that are IPv6 ready? Thanks! A: The Cisco SPA112 is IPv6 compatible. It is set to IPv4 by default but can be upgraded to IPv6 with ease. All of our adapters are IPv6 ready. Nowadays, most every adapter is IPv6 compatible.
Questions about VoIP devices and services are regularly submitted to VoIPSupply.com through a technical support ticket or via the “Ask The Expert” tab on our product pages.
We respond to these requests directly but more often than not, this Q & A would be helpful for lots of other folks.
Below are your VoIP questions answered – Real questions from real people just like you.
Q: I want to use this Wireless headset [Plantronics Voyager PRO HD] with a VOIP system that I plan to install on my iMac… does it only function with a mobile device (phone), or will it work with any desktop/laptop computer as well? Thanks!
Personally I haven’t had the best luck pairing Bluetooth headsets with my Windows 7 laptop – it can never seem to install the correct drivers. My desktop computer at work, on the other hand, has no problems working with Bluetooth and wireless headsets that are connected via the USB adapter.
Then again, you’ll probably have no problems with your iMac. And the USB adapter is a good backup plan if the Bluetooth won’t sync.
The Lynsys PAP2T, if you can find one, might still work for what you need. But since it is no longer being sold and is no longer supported by Cisco, we recommend going with the SPA112 replacement.
Q: I am traveling to the US and my parents will remain in Puerto Rico. I want to know if this equipment [Grandstream GXV3140] is recommended for daily contacts with them via SKYPE. They are at a elderly home facility which has internet connection, but i am not sure what i need for this. Please let me know if you recommend this or something else.
You can make free voice and video calls via Skype on the GXV3140 just by plugging the phone into your network or, internet connection.
Since this phone is Skype certified, Skype comes pre-installed. With this phone you can call any other Skype users whether they’re using a GXV3140 of their own or a webcam, laptop, cell phone, or tablet. You just need the internet or, network connection to make this happen.
