You have a limited budget and you love your old phones. Does that mean you can’t ever enjoy the benefits of VoIP that everyone is talking about? No, not at all. A VoIP adapter is your answer.
A VoIP adapter, also known as an Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) converts a VoIP signal to an analog tone so that you can use existing analog devices such as your old phone or fax machines with VoIP service. In other words, you will be benefiting from VoIP just like other VoIP users without having to replace your existing analog equipment! Better yet, you can get a new ATA for just under 60 dollars! Here are 5 popular ATA choices to get your foot in the door:
The OBi302 by Obihai is a 2-port ATA that allows you to use your analog devices with any SIP trunking provider. Simply plug the ATA into your router and then plug your analog devices into the ATA, you are ready to go!
The OBi302 features 2 FXS connections. You can connect 2 analog phones, an analog phone, and a fax machine, or 2 fax machines to the Internet for VoIP calling. It also has 2 RJ45 ports for you to connect to your router and to another IP device such as a computer.
