We are happy to announce that you will soon be able to purchase the SonicWALL TZ 210 and NSA 240 routers directly from FreedomVoice. Through our testing, we have found these routers to have robust firewalls, be capable of extremely effective Quality of Service (QoS), and we believe they will be great additions to any FreedomIQ service. And remember, when you order any hardware from FreedomVoice, we will preconfigure it for your unique system before shipment.
What is QoS?
QoS prioritizes web traffic going through the router. With good QoS, which SonicWALL routers provide, VoIP traffic can be given top priority over other network traffic, maximizing call quality. Without QoS, HD videos, streaming online radio, other web traffic and your VoIP call all fight over the same amount of bandwidth which can lead to calls with poor call quality. These SonicWALL routers, when programmed properly, will give your VoIP calls the VIP treatment and leave the rest of the traffic to share the remaining bandwidth. Check out our SonicWALL QoS demo below:
The SonicWALL TZ 210 is capable of handling up to 20 phones on the FreedomIQ service. It has a gigabit Ethernet interface, allowing you to connect it to an internal network gigabit switch for faster internal access. The TZ 210 also features application traffic analytics to determine how much bandwidth an application is using, optional wireless b/g/n for secure high-speed connectivity, along with WAN, analog modem and 3G cellular modem failovers to keep your network online all the time. Complete specs.
SonicWALL NSA 420
The SonicWALL NSA 240 is a step up from the TZ210 featuring dual-core processor architecture which allows FreedomIQ service to work for up to 60 locally connected phones. Complete specs.
With the addition of these two new routers to our existing supported list, we are able to give you more options to find the product that works best for your business.
