Deploying Algo Solutions in a Cisco Environment

Algo products are feature rich, supporting secure SIP using TLS and SRTP, central provisioning and network supervision. Multicast is also supported to permit solutions to be scaled over any size building, campus or enterprise in education, healthcare, government, commercial office, manufacturing, utility / plant, transportation, distribution / warehouse retail and hospitality sectors, to name a few.

Any Cisco telephone supporting RTP multicast, as well as Singlewire InformaCast and Syn-Apps Revolution, will permit audio from voice paging, notification alerting and scheduled announcements / bells to be simultaneously broadcast over Algo IP speakers and telephones. Strobe lights can also be included in a multicast for additional notification awareness.

Integrating a legacy analog paging system to a Cisco telephone system is simplified with Algo paging adapters. SIP registration and multicast are supported on Algo paging adapters to ensure audio from voice paging, emergency notification alerting and scheduled announcements / bells can be easily bridged to most traditional analog amplifiers. This makes it possible for audio to be simultaneously broadcast over legacy analog infrastructure, multicast supported telephones and Algo IP speakers. With Algo paging adapters there is no limitation to creating a hybrid solution to achieve complete integration of analog and IP endpoints. Regardless of how future needs may change for any organization, business or enterprise, the Algo IP paging system is flexible to accommodate public address (PA) application requirements.

Simple Configuration.

Discover how to configure an Algo 8180 on your Cisco Call Manager System. Algo IP Endpoints, including the 8180 IP Audio Alerter, have been tested for compatibility and interoperability with Cisco VOIP platforms.

The 8180 IP Audio Alerter is a wall mount IP speaker for voice paging, emergency alerting, and loud ringing applications. Learn more.

Note: For all other Algo SIP doorphone / intercoms, similar firmware is used and the same CUCM interoperability and configuration steps will apply.

All Algo IP products are 3rd party SIP compliant and able to register with Cisco Unified Communications Manager Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) and premise-based platforms including CallManager (CUCM), CallManager Express (CUCME), and Business Edition 4000/6000/7000. Please note: Cisco Webex Calling (Spark) does not currently support 3rd party SIP endpoint registration. For additional configuration notes and videos, please visit: Compatible VoIP Phone Systems.
