Digium's New Analog Gateways

Digium has developed a new line of analog gateways to fill a product gap in Switchvox's recently exciting appliance product line. Prior to this new line of gateways, Switchvox's new appliance rollout did not support bays to install Digium cards. An analog gateway can connect SWV on premises to the PSTN, as well as virtualized Switchvox (SWV). Making this gateway a fundamental part of a SWV architecture, especially when an analog interconnection is needed. However, it can also be used to connect analog phones to the PBX.

Digium’s new G080 VoIP Gateway is an 8-port analog gateway available in 3 separate analog loop-start configurations: 8 FXO ports, 8 FXS ports, & 4 FXO with 4 FXS ports.


  • GA080: 8 Port Analog FXO
  • GA800: 8 Port Analog FXS
  • GA440: 4 Port Analog FXS and 4 Port Analog FXO

Consistent with Digium's existing gateways, this is an industrial-grade and high-performing appliance. The new line boasts a state-of-the-art embedded hardware and an architecture that requires no fan and consists of no moving parts, all on a metal 1U case. Physically, the unit is the width of half-a-rack, so you can allocate two gateways in a rack or one E510 with a gateway. Not to mention, it's cost effective with a low power consumption and seamless integration with Switchvox.


  • Intelligent call routing
  • Easy-to-navigate GUI
  • Loopstart signaling support
  • Solid state (no moving parts)
  • Remote configuration and software updates
  • Built-in echo cancellation
  • Per-port LED indicators to show interface type
  • Up to 8 concurrent calls
  • T.38 Fax Gateway

This analog gateway highlights for its software architecture built upon the Asterisk communications platform, which allows to use the Digium configuration server to provision trunks and outgoing call rules in a very easy way. This procedure is called interconnect discovery and can be used when there is a direct access between the Switchvox and the gateway, and when Switchvox version is 6.5.1 or later.

This Digium gateway is available for ordering now at a MSRP of $895 (USD) and has optional warranty extensions of 3 or 5 years.
