Vonage Unveils New Home Router9/25/2006 6:43 AM Eastern
Vonage is adding to its equipment list, announcing a new combination router and voice-over-Internet-protocol adaptor through gear partner Motorola.
The Motorola VT2142 is a single-port router with a two-line telephone adaptor that can translate VoIP signals into analog for use with any common household phone. The device will sell for $49.99.
The new adapter-router device is part of Vonage’s strategy to provide a variety of connection options for customers. It also offers the Motorola VT1005, a stand-alone VoIP-phone adapter, and the two-line, four-port VT2442 adapter.
"Expanding our device offering with Motorola enables us to continue offering consumer-friendly, feature-rich voice-terminal technologies -- a simple way for consumers to benefit from Vonage's attractively priced, tiered calling plans,” said Daniel Smires, Vonage’s senior vice president of engineering.
