After months of development, the Yeastar S-Series PBX Firmware 18.104.22.168 is now available. This update introduces changes that improve our ability to a number of useful new features and squash pesky bugs, since firmware release 22.214.171.124.
Here is an overview of the changes brought by Yeastar S-Series PBX Firmware 126.96.36.199:
- New App Conference Panel.
One of the most noticeable changes we made in the new firmware is the new app. Enter S-Series VoIP PBX App Center, you will find the new App Conference Panel. This Conference Panel could realize all conference management based on Web interface. You can initiate and administrate a conference on Web.
- SLA feature.
Path: Settings > PBX > Call Control > SLA
The Shared Line Appearance (SLA) feature helps users share VoIP trunks and FXO trunks. It also helps monitor the status of the shared line. When an outgoing call is made by the user, all members in the SLA group are informed about the call and will be blocked from this line appearance until the line goes back to idle state or the call is put on hold. When an incoming call is received, all the members are informed of it and may join it depending on the line appearance linked with the SLA extension.
- New network mode “Single”.
Path: Settings > System > Network > Basic Settings
If you choose Single mode, only LAN port will be used for uplink connection. WAN port is disabled. The default network mode is Single.

On the upper-right corner, you can see the new added Notification icon and Recourse Monitor icon. Click to check news and alerts, click to check the PBX information, network status and storage status.
- Web alert when the PBX power is off or the PBX is off-line.
If the PBX power is off or any problem of the system network, a dialog will display on the webpage to inform you.
- Added SIP “Jitter Buffer” settings.
Path: Settings > PBX > General > SIP > Jitter Buffer
Jitter is the variation in the time between packets arriving on a VoIP system. These variations can be caused by network congestion, timing drift or route changes. Jitter buffers are used to counter delay or latency, dropped packets, and jitter. They temporarily store arriving packets to minimize jitter and discard packets that arrive too late.
Configure the Jitter Buffer settings on S-Series PBX will improve the call quality through VoIP.
