Default Recommend ATA please

Please could you recommend an ATA for the following scenario:

- Accomodate a single DECT phone which needs to be able to use the
PSTN by default (important!)
- Pressing a specific key on the DECT phone and then dialing will
route via a SIP account
- No interest in incoming calls via VOIP. This is purely a solution
to gain cheaper outgoing calls
- Fallover, so if the ATA is switched off, the DECT phone can still
make calls over the PSTN.

I see many different ATA's but they all seem to route via VOIP by
default with a seperate key to route via PSTN.

Thanks in advance.

With a suitable dial plan, it is easy to setup using an ATA such as a
Linksys SPA 3102

Cheers from Mike

Linksys SPA-3102 will do all that no problem.

You could get the ATA and DECT phone all in one by buying a Siemens C460IP.

There is a setting in the web interface to choose whether calls go VoIP
or PSTN by default.

All Grandstream ATAs works fine after a firmware upgrade.

Unless you're calling other SIP endpoints, i.e. your calls are entirely
VoIP, then I'd be really interested to know what VoIP provider you're
using that's cheaper than a landline, please?

Cheers,
Chris

Look carefully. Linksys bought Sipura who actually made the SPA3102.
Linksys are now owned by Cisco.

If you look under the roiginal brands you may well find some bargains.
Whatever brand they are physically identical.

Seconding this suggestion, I've got one of these beasties and it works
well. If you set the default to PSTN calls you can suffix the number with
* to route via VOIP.

Voipcheap.com, is one such example. For EUR10 of credit (which gets EUR2
of VAT at German 20% rate plus 0.50 payment fee - which works out in total
close to GBP10.00 in all) you get 90 days free calls to 01/02 numbers plus
many international landlines, including USA, Canada, Australia, most of
Western Europe. UK mobiles are EUR0.08/min - including Three. Billing is
per minute, with no connection charge. Once you've used the 90 days' free
calls (or exceed 300 mins free calls in a 7 day period) the free
destinations are EUR0.01/minute. Your EUR10(+2.50) top-up is used for
these calls, and isn't depleted as a service charge for the free calls.

Mine doesn't work at all. It stopped working several months ago. I'd not
recommend them.
