Key Product Features

  • Line Sharing –up to 4 devices sharing a single standard telephone line.
  • Programmable –accessible through a standard phone line and programmable using touch tones.
  • Caller ID Compatible –when the feature is enabled the CallerID is presented. The feature is enabled by setting the “Rings to Answer” parameter to more than 2 rings.
  • DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) Compatible –The Stick connects just like your phone in a DSL scenario. The DSL filter is installed between the DSL service connection and the line jack on The Stick. Analog devices (phones, FAX, Dialup modems) connect to ports on The Stick.
  • FAX Tone Detection –when activated,this feature allows The Stick to detect FAX/CNG (CalliNG) tones and connect the call to the FAX port.
  • Barge-In Protection –This feature prevents Barge-In on voice or data calls connected through The Stick. This becomes especially useful when a data call is in progress, because it allows the data call to complete successfully.
  • Security Access Code for Modem Port –A data call is only connected to the Modem Port when the calling Modem sends the expected security access code. This is particularly useful when the dial-up modem connects to devices deemed critical and security is a top priority. All other ports on The Stick have the Security Access Code feature as well.
  • Call Transfer –A variety of transfer options are offered. These are especially useful because they enable special handling of incoming calls during “after-hours” conditions.
