Network alarms (SNMP Traps) can be generated for configurable events such as loss of audio, audio levels above a certain threshold and the like.

Specific application firmware is available from Barix or can even be programmed by Barix and integrators alike to suit special, non-standard applications. One example is the Barix SIP application, which turns the Instreamer in an audio-dial or call-in monitoring device.

The Barix Instreamer can be easily configured and managed with a web browser. A link on the UI allows direct listening to the audio feed in real time.

With serial and Ethernet control APIs, open IP-standards and support for PCM, G.711 and MP3, the device can be integrated with other components, controlled by automation systems, or used with a Barix Exstreamer 100 Audio Decoder to create flexible, standards based and cost effective solutions in many markets.
