The low cost MultiVOIP MVP130-FXS Analog Adapter is a single port device that connects to an IP network via 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and, using an FXS interface, to a phone or fax machine via a standard RJ11 connector. This new device turns legacy analogue telephone and fax apparatus into new IP communication equipment over IP telephony networks.

The single port MultiVOIP MVP130-FXS will be shipping this month and has an MSRP of AU$499.

“If your legacy telecommunications network is evolving into an IP communications network, you probably have faced the dilemma of how to incorporate your analog telephones and fax machines,” states Craig Russell, Managing Director of Logical Connections.

“It is difficult to retire equipment that is working properly and hasn’t been written-off on the company books. With this new telephone and fax IP adapter, you can give them a new lease on life in your IP network. This device is designed to operate anywhere on an IP network where there is an available 10 or 100 Mbps Ethernet port. The low cost MultiVOIP’s flexibility allows customers to cost-effectively turn their analog phones and fax machines into IP devices that can serve the needs of enterprise networks, small office environments and single user locations.”

The MultiVOIP supports H.323 or SIP for sending voice over the Internet and Single Port Protocol (SPP) which allows the use of dynamic IP addresses. It supports H.450 supplementary services to provide for call transfer, call forwarding, call hold, call waiting and name identification. It uses voice compression to 5.3K bps per call with support for multiple algorithms, including G.723 and G.729. It also supports T.38 real-time fax relay for interoperability among other VOIP equipment.

This MultiVOIP model is equipped with one auto-sensing 10/100 Mbps Ethernet connector for attaching to an IP network and one FXS interface using an RJ11 connector for attachment to a telephone or fax machine.
