VoIP - POTS Patch

I am suscribed to a VOIP provider which allows me to make free calls to the
48 states. I have however kept my POTS system intact. I would like however,
to find a way through which I can patch an established incoming call in the
POTS line to an established call on the VOIP line (or vice-versa). Is this
possible? What additional equipment do I need? Where can I get such
equipment? Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated.

If one of the two calls weren't established and your voip/pstn gateway
provider allowed you to use your own equipment then you could use
something like the Sipura SPA-3000 to answer the PSTN call, and allow
the caller to dial another number via your VOIP-to-PSTN service.

If you really want to bridge two established phone calls then the only
way I can think of is to set up a conference bridge and transfer both
calls to that. The open-source program "asterisk" does that, but it
seems like an awful lot of tinkering just to allow established calls
to be bridged. It would be simpler if you could get one of the party
on the voip leg to hang up and wait for a call back.

Sounds like you want to be able to make free calls from any phone by
patching through your POTS:VoiP connection.

The Sipura 3000 should fulfill the requirement. Here is a link to the
product page:

Do you mean allow a caller on one line to dial out on another, or do you
mean conference two established calls together..? A device like the Sipura
3000 will do the former, while pretty much any PBX system will do the
latter. If you don't have or don't need/want a PBX then a 2-line phone
such as the BT Converse 2025 will do the job. It's a UK product but I'm
sure someone in the US produces something similar.

You can get a "combine-a-line" to join the pstn and voip to a single point
for ease of use. No power supply and the hum, and all lines surge protected
to save your equipment. Low cost, new and very reliable.

And if you are on one line and someone calls the other line while you have a
combine-a-line connected, the second caller gets dumped and you don't even
know they called. The device doesn't conference the lines, it just switches
from one to the other. Then, the last incoming call determines the default
line, which is a problem if it is connected to your phone system in a remote
area.
