Delivering consumer VoIP without ATAs

New Zealand ISP Orcon has found a way to deliver VoIP to consumers without requiring them to purchase an ATA. In this podcast, Patrick Gray chats to their CTO Thomas Salmen, who explains how the company pulls off the trick!

Our guest on this week's edition of A Series of Tubes is the Thomas Salmen, CTO of New Zealand-based ISP Orcon, the first ISP in the land of the long white cloud to get access to the incumbent telco's copper.

That means they've put in their own DSLAMs, and now, SIP cards.

Instead of selling VoIP solutions that require the installation of an ethernet ATA at the customer's home, Orcon can churn them to VoIP with no change required on the customers' end.

Also on this week's show we're joined by Fotios Kotsiopoulos from our sponsor HP ProCurve. This week Fotios joins us to update us on the latest with 10G ethernet.
