The Switchvox 80 cold spare is the perfect addition to your Switchvox 80 IP PBX Appliance. The 80 cold spare is an exact duplicate in technical specs as the Switchvox 380 appliance. Keep it on hand so if your 80 appliance ever goes down, within minutes you can be back up and running.
The Switchvox 80 cold spare can replace your primary 80 appliance in a pinch. It is a fully functional machine without user licenses. In the event of a primary server failure, you can easily reload your user licenses onto the Cold Spare and be up and running.
If you have Digium telephony cards installed into your primary Switchvox 80 appliance, you would either need to order spares for your Cold Spare, or uninstall them from the primary and reinstall them into the cold spare. For this reason, many IT admins prefer to use Digium Gateways instead of telephony cards because they can easily be disconnected from the primary and plugged into the Cold Spare.
