    It looks like there's at least one standalone GSM VoIP gateway
    but I haven't found anyone selling them.

    Is there any support in Asterisk for GSM hardware? I'd like to
    use my Option Globetrotter GSM card
    or my SE T68i over Bluetooth or data cable.

    It looks like work has started on a Bluetooth channel
    but what about hardwired GSM devices?

    Thank you.

    Oh! It looks like there's something new (to me) for this.
    It supports both wired and Bluetooth connections. This at least
    means it can be done.

    I might try one but I'd rather avoid the analog conversion step
    (using another FXO).

    In response to my query about Option GSM cards handling digital
    voice streams, I received this.
    No, our cards are data only.

    That's an odd response. Their cards certainly do handle voice.
    I've made voice calls on mine. There's an analog headset port
    for this.

    I assume that this just means that they don't have the firmware
    to make voice data available. Too bad.

    I see that QuesCom claims to be "THE ONLY GSM GATEWAY FOR IP TELEPHONY
    ENVIRONMENTS". Does this mean it makes the GSM/VoIP gateways sold by
    other companies? Does it sell the smaller (one and two line) units?

  7. Kyler,

    It means currently, we do have the only product that does not need to
    add a VoIP gateway. The DSPs and the software attached is native. I am
    sure our competitor are working to get those kind of solutions...

    Our range of product have 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 SIM channels in 1U.

    So what is it about the product I posted earlier in this thread
    that doesn't fit that description?
