Essential IP

An IP upgrade with a small price tag

Essential IP makes updating dial up PSTN systems easy. It connects to your customers’ broadband over Ethernet or wi-fi, has an OLED display and dial capture on board for a speedy install. It exceeds SP2 or SP4 performance levels (equivalent to the old Grade 2 or Grade 4), so it reports path faults to the ARC much faster than traditional digi communicators. Making it the perfect set-up for future-proofing low-higher risk premises.

Why choose Essential IP?
