Kiwilink VoIP One Number

The Kiwilink one number service is an enhancement to our Locate Me service. It enables you to have up to 6 devices or phones registered against a single Kiwilink number at the same time. When someone rings the Kiwilink number all phones/devices will ring at the same time. A great example of this is if you have a Softphone and a VoIP handset or dual mode cellphone.

Instead of having a Kiwilink number for your handset/cellphone and another Kiwilink number for your softphone with Locate Me set up between the two - simply use the same number on both and no matter where you are people will be able to reach you. Kiwilink One Number is also useful in a small office situation where you have one number and want it to ring all the office phones at once. Of course if you’re away from an area with internet access you can still use the locate me service to have your cellphone or landline ring as well.

Here’s how it works

First you need to enable the service in Kiwilink VoIP portal. Go to the Locate Me/OneNumber screen, tick the box labeled Kiwilink One Number and then save. 

Next setup your devices correctly. You should choose one device as your primary device. In the SIP settings for your primary device enter your Kiwilink number and password as usual. For each additional device you will need to add a suffix to your Kiwilink number/login. The suffix will need to take the format of a dash followed by the number 1-5. Each device will need a different number/suffix or else the service won’t work. The password is the same for each device. 

The maximum number of devices you can register against one Kiwilink number is 6 including your primary device
Here’s a sample configuration.
Primary Device - Linksys VoIP handset - Login = 028890123
2nd Device - xlite (Softphone) - Login = 028890123-1
3rd Device - Linksys ATA - Login = 028890123-2
4th Device - Nokia E Series phone - Login = 028890123-3
