Hi All,

Need a suggestion about an ATA. I am about to go nDSL at home and get rid of the telecom land line. I need to get an ATA that would support 2 lines (Voip numbers). We currently have a NZ Voip account and a UK one (for calling folks back home) which are both set up through a sipura IP phone that has 2 lines on it, incomming calls on either number rings the phone and you can select which line you want to use when dialling out.

We have a cordless phone (with extra stations) that i would like to function in the same way, but that would mean finding a ATA that i can put 2 accounts into so that the cordless will ring upon either account being called. (if i can get it to work i'll get rid of the sipura phone so i dont run into problems with multiple connections to the voip account).

Are there any ata's available in NZ that will do this (that are reasonably priced) ? All the units i seem to have found so far only support 1 line / phone. Probably want to avoid having to install tribox/asterix or something like that as this point.

Again, if there isnt such a box it isnt the end of the world as we can just keep out corded voip phone to use for one account a get a simple ATA box for the NZ voip on the cordless. I dont need the ATA box to be a router or anything of the sort as thats already being taken care of.

Thanks,

Do you use the UK account for both inbound and outbound calls or just outbound? Who is your NZ provider?

Any of the Linksys devices can support multiple providers in the dialplan - you can create a custom dialplan in the devices that would allow calls to UK numbers to be routed via one provider and all other calls via your NZ provider. It doesn't register the 2nd provider though so doesn't support inbound calling, just outbound.

We do use Inbound and outbound for both, we have a local number in the UK that people can call that rings us here so they only pay the cost of a local call when phoning NZ. Am about to switch everything over to Xnet and their fusion plan so will have a VfX account.

The Linksys 942 IP phone would allow this

I do already have one of those phones (or the old Sipura equvalent) that we do use in that fashion. What i would really like to try and do is give our cordless POTS phone, attached to an ATA device the same functionality as such a phone, with 2 lines inbound and outbound.

I haven't seen an ATA that do that. The closest is the Linksys range which means having two phonses - 1 for each provider.
