July 28, 2006 by Garrett Smith

Yes, Yes, we all know that the Motorola VT1005 has been used by Vonage for quite sometime. But until recently, the only way to get a hold of them was to A) be Vonage or B) be as large as Vonage. VoIP Supply is proud to announce a partnership with Motorola that allows VoIP Supply to sell the un-locked, non-vonage version of their VT1005 SIP Telephone Adaptor.

The adaptor features a compact, low profile design with easy web based configuration. Add two 10/100 Base-T Ethernet ports for Wan/Lan connectivity and two RJ-11 telephony ports and you have the ideal solutions for your residential VoIP service customers. The VT1005 also allows for Voice over data prioritization, PPPoE support, and VPN-pass through. with a suggested retail price of $79.99, and an estimated street price of $65.00 in single quantities, this telephone adaptor will be a great alternative to the Linksys 2100 and Grandstream 486.
