Replace default hold music on Nextiva

Easy On Hold®, an Music On Hold technology and content developer in Michigan, created live streaming music on hold in 2013 to satisfy the demand to replace default music with an easily-managed audio content stream.


In 2020 EOH launched a cloud-based appliance, Streaming Queue Music™ (SQM), that transcodes streams of audio into various stream formats for use on a variety of platforms, including Nextiva (Broadsoft®).

The Easy On Hold® SIP audio stream utilizes an Identity/Device Profile as an “endpoint” into which content is streamed from SQM. The Music On Hold settings in the Broadsoft® interface are configured to point calls to the endpoint, to be used as a kind of “conference room” where calls wait and hear the audio stream.


Easy On Hold® will assign a unique Line/Port name for each stream provided. This information is used to configure the Identity/Device Profile.

What kind of music can I stream in Nextiva?

Content options include: existing client content, or licensed music and/or voice recordings provided by Easy On Hold®. For the convenience and benefit of its customers, Easy On Hold® has obtained performance licensing for a variety of music. Voiced greetings, announcements, and promotions can be added to play between songs or as produced promotional “spots”. End-users are able to control content from a personal management portal at easyonholdcloud.com.
