Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Andre Gronwald, Mar 2, 2005.

  1. hello,
    i am going to migrate my telephony to voip - at the moment i am using
    standard isdn. therefor i am looking for a voip-gateway, which enables
    me to plug-in standard analogue telephones. on my search for such
    gateways i only found devices integrating a router. but for
    routing-purposes i want to use my wrt54g furthermore...

    is that possible without problems? can you recommend any hardware?

    thanks a lot,
    with friendly regards,

    How many phones..? Which VoIP service..? For one or two phones in a
    domestic or small business environment, take a look at www.sipura.com.

    I use the SPA-2000 unit which has two analogue ports and works very well.

    Andre, you may want to look into http://www.packet8.net . I just subscribed
    to their service and installed their DTA310 adapter to attach my analogue
    phones to my Belkin WiFi access point/router and not only did it practically
    install itself, it works flawlessly. The DTA310 plugs into any Ethernet
    router port on one site and a RJ11 phone jack on the other. The service
    itself is a real bargain at $19.95/mo. I decided to buy a Vtech expandable
    cordless phone set to take advantage of all the new free features of Packet8
    and all get along famously with my 802.11g WiFi network. Cheers, Wizzzer

  6. 2 phones at the moment, they are connected to a telephone-system
    (t-concept xi-521)
    sipura is known by me, i read something of their products. the 3000
    seems to support the telephone-system. do you know something about that?

    with kindly regards,

    If you're in Germany, take a look at Sipgate - they are based in
    Dusseldorf. Their German site is www.sipgate.de. I've been using their UK
    service for a few months now and I am very impressed.

    cause why i need hardware for using voip efficiently...

    Ok, well I don't know the Sipura 3000 you mentioned personally, but
    looking at it on the website I see it only has a single phone port,
    whereas the 2000 that I have has two. If a single port is sufficient for
    you then go ahead, but I'd prefer the flexibility of adding a second phone
    without buying a second device..!

    The 3000 does have additional features like automatic call routing but I
    don't have a need for this.

    All the best,

    The newer MediaTrix VoIP ATA does IP Passthrough out of the box so may
    be closer to what you're looking for. It will pass your public IP back
    to the router and continue to chug on like a champ on the VoIP side of
    things. Keep in mind that any device you find, so long as it's in front
    of your Linksys, is going to take priority over port 5060 and whichever
    RTP ports are being used to send the voice data.
    Other than that, if you can find a similar device that will strictly
    passthrough the public IP then I think you might achieve what you want.

  12. In the 3000 one FXS port is replaced by an FXO port, so that the device
    can work as VoIP <->PSTN gateway. For more details see
    http://sipura.com/support/spa3000faq/ and the user guide at
    http://sipura.com/Documents/SipuraSPAUserGuidev2.0.9.pdf (which also
    covers the 2000 and other models).

    I live in McAllen, Texas, USA. Vonage and Lingo cannot yet offer a
    local toll free number, so it was important that my SBC number be
    ported. Packet8 could not only port my SBC number, but they offered a
    local temparary number that could be called from the McAllen area toll
    free. I ruled out RoadRunner (Time Warner Cable) by price alone

    I signed up with Packet8 on March 7, 2005 at $19.95/month. I faxed my
    application to have my SBC number ported to my Packet8 account on March
    8, 2005. I received my Packet8 device, hooked it up, and activated it
    on March 17, 2005. My old SBC phone number was ported on April 8, 2005.
    The transfer was almost seamless (a phone call to Packet8) when my SBC
    service was terminated.

    So far, everything seems to be working as advertised. Call forwarding,
    Call waiting, Caller ID, Voicemail, Etc. Also, my use history is
    available on the Packet8 site and is impacted within 10 seconds of my
    hanging up the phone.

    Quality of the voice is as good as my experience with SBC. I wear
    hearing aids and voice quality is important.

    So far, so good. Time will tell..

    And tell us please, what happens if you need to dial 9-1-1 ??
    On the off chance that you haven't made a "test" call, I certainly would
    recommend doing so.
