Ike Elliott has an often interesting blog. Today he is agreeing with Garrett Smith about how VoWifi has been dissappointing. I’ve echo’d this same sentiment many times previously.
Ike recommends an ATA and traditional cordless phone. That combination will certainly be more reliable that most Wifi SIP phones. I’ve used a Sipura SPA-2002 and a Panasonic 5.8 GHz cordless phone to good effect in my home. Since Smith’s original post referenced Vonage no longer providing a VoWifi offering I suppose it does target home users specifically.
However, SOHO users who are looking for more business class features (hold, transfer, conferencing, etc) or integration with local or hosted IP-PBXs should also consider SIP DECT solutions like the new Snom M3 that I’ve been using for the past week or so. Polycom also has the Kirk SIP DECT systems.
