American Blues Network is 24-hr programming fed on an Internet-based delivery system. We recommend the use of a BARIX ANNUNCICOM 1000 for optimum programming. It has balanced audio and supervised I/O. It is ideal to serve as a gateway between IP PAGING, VoIP, and Intercom Systems. Any type of basic high-speed Internet (cable modem, DSL, “U-VERSE”, etc.) can be used for this system but they MUST be reliable. Satellite Internet (Sky-Blue, Hughes-net, etc.) has NOT been tested but might also work. NOTE: additional monthly “data plan” bandwidth limitations, usage fees, overage fees, and bad weather interruptions may apply if you have a satellite Internet Service Provider!
