Telos ZIP One


There are some nice videos by Kirk Harnack for LUCI LIVE :

and LUCI LIVE Lite :

In detail

In this manual we will explain how to establish the communication between LUCI LIVE software running on a mobile device and the Telos Z/IP One hardware codec. The mobile device is connected to the internet via a 4G connection and our studio (Z/IP One) is connected to the internet via our local router. To be able to establish this communication we will need to set up the different devices: LUCI LIVE will have to know where to send, the router will need to know how to transfer the communication coming from LUCI LIVE and the Z/IP One will need to accept this communication.

Configuring LUCI LIVE / LUCI LIVE Lite

In this example we will use the G.722 protocol which is present in both LUCI versions, LUCI LIVE and LUCI LIVE Lite.
You will need to create a new station, for more details on the adding stations please consult our online manual.
Name: name your station, this is just an indication.
Protocol: RTP
Codec: G.722
Bitrate: 64 kbps
Jitter buffer: 100 ms
Destination: In our example this should be 82.161.163.12:5010 so the the public destination address of your router followed by the port number which is used for port forwarding.
Channels: Mono
Bit depth: 16 bit
Sample rate: 48.000 Hz

Configuring the Router (port forwarding)


Regardless of what software is on your router, you’ll be required to enter the same type of information. First, you’ll see a text field where you can type in the name of the application or service. Next, you’ll see which incoming port your router should watch for. In our example this will be 5010. Then, you’ll be able to choose which protocol to watch for. In has to be set to UDP.
You’ll need to choose which IP address is the destination for this port’s requests. This is the local IP address of the Z/IP One (example 192.168.1.100). Lastly, you’ll be able to choose which port the request should be targeted to on the destination IP (same as the incoming port 5010).
Every router has it’s own user interface where the port forwarding can be set-up, this depends on the manufacturer.
How to set this on your router depends on your router but here you can find examples for most routers.

Configuring Telos Z/IP One

You will access the Status page of your Z/IP One via the web browser by filling in the IP of the Z/IP One in the menu bar. In our example this address will be 192.168.1.100. from the status page you can access the Network Settings.
To access the Network settings you will be prompted to fill in an User name and password. For default type ‘user’ for the user name and the password can be left unfilled.

Make sure the DHCP is disabled in the WAN Interface.

The port number has to be set for the incoming and outgoing RTP stream. In our example the receive-only port is set to 5009. The Z/IP one will decode automatically any incoming stream coming via this port. But as we want the Z/IP one to reply with G722 we will use port 5010 (this is always 1 more than the base port 5009 in this case). So we enable the reply port for G722 which will provide the correct returning communication to the LUCI LIVE Lite application. For LUCI LIVE with AAC-HE you could enable and use 5011.
