Another day, another ATA. Apparently this one from Vocal Technologies is different, or so the company claims. It is about to introduce a new kind of analog telephone adapter design based on SIPv2 & patent pending algorithms that will cut per unit cost by over 50% – allowing the smaller ISP cost effective entry into the voice market. In their press release they say that, ” Unlike traditional architectures, VOCAL’s ATA hardware and software designs fully utilize modern DSP resources and advanced patent-pending algorithms to eliminate the need for an additional RISC processor, reducing the cost of typical building materials by as much as $8 per design.” VOCAL’s 2×2+1 ATA solution supports up to two telephone lines, two Ethernet ports and a PSTN life-line port for automated voice service switching in case of a power outage or network disconnection and is stackable to larger port configurations. Aswath always talks about how all ATAs should work with all VoIP service providers. Is this the answer.

  1. The details on Vocal’s ATA is sketchy so it is not clear how it is different from other ATAs(except for cost saving design). Nothing in the press release or their spec sheet indicates that they will register with more than one proxy. More importantly, the user interface is still limited to 12+1 button phone thereby limiting the feature set.

  2. I think this one seems to rely more on the software than anything else. i will be talking to them soon so fill you in on the details

    Cheaper ATAs?

    Om Malik has a blog entry about Vocal Technologies a new Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) for VoIP that is, well, “different” from others out there. The main difference is, in the hardware, or rather the lack of it. “Unlike traditional…
