Cisco SPA2102 Phone Adapter with Router - SPA2102-NA
|Inexpensive, easy to install, and simple to use, the Cisco SPA2102 Phone Adapter with Router connects a standard telephone or fax machine to an IP-based data network. Voice over IP (VoIP) service providers can offer residential and business users traditional and enhanced communication services via the customer's broadband connection to the Internet.
The Cisco SPA2102 features two basic telephone ports to connect existing analog phones or fax machines to a private branch exchange (PBX) system. It also includes two 100BASE-T RJ-45 Ethernet interfaces to connect to a home or office LAN, as well as an Ethernet connection to connect a broadband modem or router (WAN). Each phone line can be configured independently via software controlled by the service provider or the end user. With the SPA2102, users are able to protect and extend their investment in their existing analog telephones, conference speakerphones, and fax machines, as well as control their migration to IP with an extremely affordable, reliable solution.
Installed by the end user and remotely provisioned, configured, and maintained by the service provider, each Cisco SPA2102 converts voice traffic into data packets for transmission over an IP network. Compact in design, the SPA2102 can be used in consumer and business VoIP service offerings, including full-featured IP Centrex environments. The SPA2102 uses international standards for voice and data networking for reliable operation.
Customer Reviews of Cisco SPA2102 Phone Adapter with Router
Great for VoIP do-it-yourself!8/5/2011
The SPA-2102 is an adapter that lets you use your analog (traditional) phones with a VoIP service and your existing broadband Internet connection. Some technical knowledge is required to set this up (or assistance from your VoIP provider) but once you get it installed, it is rock-solid. It is inexpensive enough that if you're not sure if VoIP is for you, you can still justify buying one of these to give it a try. I use this with voip.ms as my provider and I have already paid for this adapter/router many times over in savings on my phone bill
Works great, but try not to be overwhelmed3/23/2009
This is a great product, and performs exactly as expected. Sound quality is excellent. I've even had people tell me on the phone that the sound quality was amazing. Be aware that this is a complex device with a potentially overwhelming amount of details for a less technical user that is simply trying to connect to a voip service. The good news is that most voip providers can tell you exactly how to setup your device for their service, so ignore the techno docs and follow a few easy steps from your providers help page to get going quickly. One tip for those that are installing this device behind an existing router rather than using the devices built in router. The easiest way to get going is to connect an ethernet cable to the lan interface from your computer (restart your network interface on your computer...you can just reboot), and log into 192.168.0.1 in your web browser, which is the spa-2102 web interface. Enter an unused static ip on your routers subnet. Set "Enable WAN Web Server" to yes, and submit changes. Move the ethernet cable to the wan port and connect the other end to your existing router. Reconnect your computer the router, and restart your network interface. You can now access your spa-2102 at the ip address that you entered for the wan interface.
