Hardware recommendations for Asterisk/Linux FXO and FXS/SIP gateway?

Discussion in 'UK VOIP' started by Roger Burton West, Sep 1, 2010.

  1. I have an Asterisk box running Debian which is happily routeing VoIP. I
    would like to be able to send calls via PSTN when that's cheaper than a
    public VoIP provider, which as far as I know means an FXO card. Any
    hardware to avoid, or that people would recommend?

    Similarly, I'd like recommendations for FXS hardware so that I can
    connect a conventional telephone into the VoIP network, e.g. as a SIP
    client. The Cisco/Linksys PAP2T sounds reasonable, but eBay only has the
    PAP2T-NA - is this just a matter of wiring an RJ11 plug to the phone, or
    is the signalling different?

    Forget the cheapy x100 and x100p FXO cards. They're a pain to set up
    and never work really well - I've had 3! Unless you're prepared to pay
    for a top notch digium card, or similar, I'd say go for a Linksys
    spa3102. (also gives you the fxs connection)
