The POTSwap allows landline telephones and modems to replace their POTS (plain old telephone service) connection with a wireless cellular connection.
An internal landline modem allows legacy dial-up modem equipment to connect to remote TCP/IP networks. Fixed location voice applications can connect directly to the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). Both dial-in and dial-out data and voice applications are supported.
An FXS connection (RJ11 jack) provides complete Central Office emulation including dial tone, ringing and busy signal generation as well as DTMF detection and generation. The POTSwap emulates all the functions of a wired telephone connection, is fully compatible with all common modem standards and can be configured to emulate all international telephone line standards.
Wireless connectivity is provided by the Janus line of Plug-In Terminus modems which are available for a variety of wireless carriers. Support is available for GSM/GPRS, CDMA-1xRTT, EDGE, UMTS, HSPA+ and EVDO wireless networks.
Configuration of the POTSwap can be achieved via external web page query, SMS message, or a local serial interface connection.
