VoIP Adapters Explained
What is a VoIP adapter? A VoIP adapter is a device that converts analog voice signals into digital IP packets for transport over an IP network. A VoIP adapter also converts digital IP packets in analog voice streams. Standard VoIPadapters connect to analog telephones via an FXS port. The VoIP adapter then connects to your Local Area Network (LAN) with an Ethernet cable via an RJ45 port. Some VoIP adapters also feature an FXO port so you can connect to the Publically Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) (you’ll read more about that later). FXS and FXO Ports FXS and FXO ports are important terms to know when dealing with VoIPadapters. An FXS port is an interface that connects station devices such as your phones or PBX to a VoIP adapter. An FXO port is an interface that connects your Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) line to a VoIP adapter.

The number of telephones, PBX systems or POTS lines you are looking to connect to a VoIP adapter determines how many of each port you will need.

How does a VoIP adapter work? VoIP adapters are rather simple. A VoIP adapter works as a bridge between an IP network and an analog station device (desktop telephone) and or the PSTN. Depending on where the voice traffic originates from a VoIP adapter will convert voice traffic into the proper form for receipt by the destination network or device. If the voicetraffic is originating from an analog telephone or the PSTN a VoIP adapter will convert the analog voice signal into a digital signal. This digital signal is then compressed using a codec and broken into a series of packets that are transferred across the IP network using a signaling protocol. If the voice traffic is originating from an IP network the VoIP adapter will decompress the digitalpackets into a digital signal that is then converted into an analog signal for receipt by the station device or sent across the PSTN.
