So I have WxC Fusion at home (have done for many a year now), and have a Linksys Router with an Linksys ATA plugged into it. If my router turns into toast can I just replace it with anything or does it need to be a specific model eg that WxC have vetted? Is it the ATA which is the managed device from their perspective?

Thanks in advance

Given that you currently are using an ATA, you'll be able to use any router in front of it (older plans allow this).  If you are on the unlimited variant you can only use the Audiocodes MP264 which comes with the plan. 

If you're interested in Unlimited you could give us a call on 0800 123 456 to discuss your options.

More than likely that the ATA will be managed/auto provsioned and the Router itself open.

If your router goes you could simply replace and retain the ATA for your VFX services or alternatively upgrade to an all-in-one Router/ATA device from WxC approved devices.

The managed devices just have the VoIP settings managed and most to the other user settings that dont affect the actual delivery of the service are unlocked e.g wireless key , name etc etc

Thanks guys. looks good.

@Cameronn - I have chatted to the sales people around the MP264 and can't justify either the cost of purchasing it, nor going unlimited...besides if I am going to replace it with something new, I will be wanting something that supports wireless ac.

^^ reason number 207 why the strict hardware enforcement on unlimited Fusion is both illogical and a turn off. Sigh.
