The Cisco ATA186-I1-A (Analog Telephone Adapter) converts traditional telephone handsets into VoIP endpoints, allowing you to use your existing phone hardware on network based telephony platforms. This can be a convenient and cost effective alternative to fully upgrading your companies phone hardware to VoIP handsets, and can allow for the integration of specialty phones that may not have a specific VoIP equivalent.
Each Cisco ATA186-I1-A can provide service to two independently numbered telephones or fax machines, making them ideal for call centers or other high-density telephone deployments, allowing for savings on Ethernet cabling and hardware by requiring only 1 ATA 186 for every 2 endpoints.
The ATA186-I1-A has 600 ohm impedance – for applications requiring complex impedence you may require an ATA186-I2-A. If you’re unsure as to which ATA your project requires, just forward us your hardware information and project details – we’ll be happy to assist you.
