How to Setup your XLink™

Direct Connect

This is the recommended method for residential users. You will not need anything except a regular corded or cordless phone.

  1. Find a spot in your house/office etc where you get good cell phone reception.
  2. Plug XLink into a wall power outlet.
  3. Plug any regular corded or cordless telephone into the telephone jack on the back of the XLink.
  4. Pair and connect your bluetooth cell phone to XLink.

A multi handset cordless is a good option if you want to have multiple extensions through out the house. You can use a single handset corded or cordless phone if you only want to have the cell phone ring in one location, for example a den or office.

Using House Wiring

  1. Find a spot in your house/office etc where you get good cell phone reception.
  2. Plug XLink into a wall power outlet.
  3. Disconnect your home wiring from your local telephone company. This can be done at the demarcation point where your telephone service enters your house. Consult a professional if you are unsure of how to do this.
  4. Use a regular telephone cord and plug the telephone jack on XLink into a nearby telephone jack.
  5. Pair and connect your bluetooth cell phone to XLink.

All phones plugged into telephone jacks throughout you house will now become cell phone extension sets.

PBX or KSU

  1. Using a regular telephone cord, plug the XLink telephone jack into the CO line card of your PBX or KSU. Treat the XLink as just another regular landline, except, the dial tone, ringing voltage, CLID etc. is coming from the XLink, not the central office.
  2. Plug XLink into a wall power outlet.
  3. Pair and connect your bluetooth cell phone to XLink. This cell phone can be a shared one that remains in the phone room.
  4. You can optionally use an extra pair of wires to position XLink so that it is located in the office of a particular user, instead of the phone room. This will allow users to have access to the cell phone.

Any handset on your PBX or KSU that has that line appearance will now ring when the cell phone rings.

VOIP Gateway

XLINK can provide the signaling required by Gateways for billing system use on most GSM networks.

  1. Connect XLink to the FXO port of an IP gateway or channel bank.
  2. Pair and connect your bluetooth cell phone to XLink. This cell phone remains in the same room with the Gateway.

Calls coming in through the IP gateway are connected through the cell phone to the final destination.
