Hosted Office Phone System™ (HoPs)
At FonAngle, we constantly strive to deliver the best user experience possible. An important factor in that respect is your phone. FonAngle's HoPs works with most SIP compliant phones, which includes the major IP Phone vendors such as Cisco, Polycom , Aastra, Linksys, SNOM, & Grandstream.
We typically recommend the Linksys, Aastra and Polycom brands [links to hardware under pricing], as each has their own strengths depending on your specific requirements. With FonAngle, you won’t be forced into buying your hardware from us since we support the option to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). However, equipment purchased from us arrives pre-configured and ready to use the moment you plug it in.
ATA (Analog Terminal Adapter)
Not ready to cut the cord on some of your old analog equipment? No problem. You can use an ATA to convert the signal from your analog device to a digital signal that works with FonAngle.
This could be your fax machine, cordless phone or specialty device that requires a telephone line. Our preferred vendor when it comes to ATAs is Linksys. If you have a special need or specific question about the compatibility of a certain device, pleasegive us a call.
When it comes to softphones there is only one company we trust to deliver the high quality, reliable service you expect from FonAngle. That company is Counterpath. From the basic free application (X-Lite), to the paid versions with enhanced features (eyeBeam & Bria), Counterpath is sure to have a model that meets your needs.
Instant Messaging clients (Jabber clients)
There are a number of free Jabber clients available which you are welcome to use with our service. If you plan on using Counterpath, Bria has a Jabber client built in. Depending on your operating system, you have a couple of choices. Our recommendations are as follows:
- Windows - Bria/Psi
- Mac OS - Bria/adium/Psi
- Linux - Psi
