Analog Telephone Adapter

A phone handset-to-Ethernet adapter that allows traditional (analog) telephone devices to be used with Voice Over IP (VOIP) services and equipment. The adapters are roughly the same size as a home Internet router and contain one or more traditional phone jack ports. The analog phone plugs into the adapter, which then communicates with an Internet router via an Ethernet connection.
