New Linksys Voice Over IP (VoIP) Solutions Help Consumers

New Linksys Voice Over IP (VoIP) Solutions Help Consumers And Small Offices Save Money On Phone Calls

Linksys Enters Voip Market with New Hardware That Connects Standard Telephones and Fax Machines to a High-Speed Internet Connection

IRVINE, CA – August 24, 2004 – Linksys®, a division of Cisco Systems, Inc., the leading provider of broadband, wireless and networking hardware for the consumer, Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) and small business markets, today announced new Voice Over IP (VoIP) products to help consumers and small offices save money and get more use out of their broadband connection. Linksys is offering three new affordable and easy to use Voip products that enable users to connect their standard telephones and fax machines to a cable or DSL broadband connection so they can make and take calls: The Linksys Phone Adapter with 2 Phone Ports (PAP2), a Wireless-G Router with 2 Phone Ports (WRT54GP2) and a wired Broadband Router with 2 Phone Ports (RT31P2).

The new Linksys Voip hardware solutions were developed with its parent company, Cisco Systems, Inc., the worldwide leader in IP Telephony. After signing up for a Voice over IP service through a specific service provider, both families and small offices can use the Internet to make phone calls, getting substantial savings on local, long distance, and International calling while also enjoying additional features at no cost such as call waiting, voicemail, caller ID, call blocking, repeat dialing and more.

“Today broadband in the home and small office is used for a variety of applications including surfing the web, sending email, sharing photos, games and music. We believe adding voice capabilities to this high speed network is the next important step and provides users with more capability,” said Charlie Giancarlo, president of Cisco-Linksys. “Our new line of consumer Voip products allows users to do all of this with a single broadband connection, all at the same time. Over time we believe IP networking is the future for all telephone and communications services, given its significant advantages over traditional telephone systems.”

In-Stat/MDR, a leading market research firm, reports that by the end of 2008 10.3% of the 59.1 million broadband users in the US will use IP telephony, and from 2004 through 2008 over 33 million Voip enabled broadband access devices will ship worldwide. “Linksys’ strength in consumer sales channels and its ability to offer low cost, easy to use solutions will help popularize Voip to the mass market,” said Mike Wolf, principal analyst, consumer content and connectivity at In-Stat/MDR. “Combining Voip hardware with basic networking hardware will help make the buying decision easier because buyers will get everything they need in one solution to set up a home network with voice capabilities.”

Phone Adapter with 2 Phone Ports for Voip (PAP2)

The New Linksys Phone adapter, combined with a subscription to a specific Voip service plan, turns your existing Internet connection into a high-quality phone line for placing and receiving phone calls. The phone adapter comes equipped with two standard phone ports (RJ-11) and one Ethernet port (RJ-45). Users connect their existing cordless or stationary phones or a fax machine to the phone adapter; connect the phone adapter to a router or gateway via the Ethernet port. Each phone jack operates independently, with separate phone service and phone numbers – like having two phone lines. With the high-quality telephone service provided by Vonage®, you get clear telephone reception and reliable fax connections, even while surfing the Internet at the same time.

Wireless-G Router with 2 Phone Ports (WRT54GP2) and
Broadband Router with 2 Phone Ports (RT31P2)

This latest version of the best-selling Linksys wired and wireless router integrates phone adapter functionality to deliver all-in-one solutions that lets customers share a broadband connection while making phone calls (with a Voip service subscription). Both the Wired and Wireless-G router comes with a 3-Port switch for connecting three Ethernet devices directly to the network. Like the Phone Adapter, there are also 2 phone ports for connecting standard phones or fax machines. Linksys also incorporates Quality of Service (QoS) for prioritizing voice packets to achieve clear telephone reception, and Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) for easy setup and configuration.

Giancarlo said, “Home or small office workers, telecommuters and other users who need more than one line for both phones and faxes will find Voip particularly appealing.”

Both the Phone adapter and Voice Routers also include a number of other features that make setting up the units simple while achieving high quality voice:

  • Supports Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)
  • Web based configuration through a build-in web server
  • Supports DTMF tone detection and generation
  • Supports multiple voice compression methods G.711, G.726 G.729 and G.723.1
  • Supports FSK Caller ID, DTMF Caller ID and FSK VMWI
  • Supports echo cancellation and Voice Activity Detection (VAD)
  • Password protected access and configuration
  • Supports auto-provisioning with remote firmware upgrade

Price and Availability

The Phone Adapter and wired Router with 2 Phone Ports is immediately through select retailers in the United States or through Vonage® at The Wireless-G Router with 2 Phone Ports will be available in a few weeks. Estimated Street Pricing through retail is as follows:

  • Phone Adapter with 2 Phone Ports (PAP2) $59
