Music on Hold
Download a music file, and name it holdmusic.wav
To roll your own, the music file must be in the following format:
|File Type||File Name||Bit Rate||Sample Size||Channels||Sample Rate||Format||Length|
|WAV||holdmusic.wav||128kbps||16 bit||1 (mono)||8 kHz||PCM||< 90 seconds|
Copy holdmusic.wav either to the IP Office from Manager, using ADVANCED ➤ EMBEDDED FILE MANAGEMENT, or directly to the System SD using a card reader. Place the music file in the /system/primary folder.
- Enter * 341 # from any phone to listen to the (source 1) system hold music.
Alternatively, the Manager should upload the file(s) automatically if they're placed in the Working Directory, and the built-in TFTP server is enabled (check in Preferences). You may also setup a TFTP server such as SolarWinds or PumpKIN to upload the file(s). An IP Office will automatically look for a TFTP server in the same subnet when it reboots.
In the Manager application:
- Go to System and select the Telephony tab.
- Select the sub tab Tones and Music.
- Select System Source = WAV file.
You can add up 3 additional hold music files, all copied to /system/primary, under "Alternate Sources".
Enter * 34N # from any phone to listen hold music from source N (1 = System).
