When an office loses connection with an off-site telephone system, local telephones are unable to communicate with each other or the outside world.

beroNet’s SBA-App transforms a beroNet VoIP Gateway or Card into a Survival Branch Appliance, enabling the beroNet device to function as a local backup telephone system. With the SBA-App installed, local phones will continue to function when:

» the main telephone system fails
» the VPN/Internet connection to the main office is lost
» the Internet connection to the hosted PBX is lost

In these situations, local phones are registered directly with the beroNet device, allowing them to continue communicating with each other and the outside world.

The SBA-App was designed for branch offices with up to 20 users and is able to fulfill essential functions such as:

» Users can call each other
» Hold / Transferring Calls
» Outgoing calls using SIP trunks or Gateway ports
» Installation of call groups

The SBA-App is independent of the primary telephone system used.

Users, call groups and SIP trunks are easily configured using a CSV file. The structure of the CSV file is very simple, allowing it to be created and edited using a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel. Alternatively, users can be exported from the main system as a CSV file and then imported into the SBA-App. This import can be done using the interface of the App.

Another special feature of the SBA-App is that the CSV file can be downloaded from a web server at regular intervals, functioning as an automatic update for the App. The file can be protected on the server with a security password.


Once the App has been purchased for a beroNet VoIP device (PCI Card, SBL or Gateway), it can be easily installed from the beroNet Market via the web interface on the Gateway. Alternatively, the SBA-App can also be pushed to the Gateway via the beroNet Cloud.

In case of a failure of the central PBX the SBA-App takes over rudimentary telephony features.

If the connection to the cloud PBX breaks, the SBA-App jumps in as local replacement PBX.

  • We tested the beroNet Gateway as a solution with the Swyx PBX (SwixWare 2011). With the help of beroNet support most teething problems could be eliminated quickly and as adjusted for the firmware beroNet the beroNet Gateway is now running smoothly with SwyxWare 2011th.

  • As part of VoIP2day’s Best Product Jury, I gave very high marks to beroNet’s New Appliance BNTA 20. It’s a beautifully engineered and solid product, which simplifies the complexity of TDM cards and their drivers by offering an ethernet interface. This greatly helps the logical separation of equipment in a VoIP deployment: there is a PBX, and there is a gateway to the PSTN, even if they are physically on the same box. Furthermore, this product enables users of operating systems for which there are no TDM card drivers available to forget about the problem. The design is certainly the result of many years of industry experience and problem analysis.

  • beroNet products are especially inspiring due to their wide range of capabilities. Now we can use the same products for our appliances and servers as for our virtual solutions. This saves us building knowhow for a number of different products, casually simplify our warehousing and all for a great cost/performance ratio.
