OBi110 or OBi100 - What is the Difference?

Obihai have two telephone adapters, currently – The OBi100 and the OBi110.  The two products function the same except for one feature.  The OBi110 has a physical port for an analog line service.  This port, labeled LINE on the OBi110, can be thought of as a gateway to a traditional phone service.  The service can be from a land line carrier like AT&T or Verizon.  It can also be from a VoIP service like Comcast or Vonage, when the phone port of the Comcast or Vonage phone line is plugged into the LINE port of the OBi110.  This gateway functionality is useful for a number of reasons…

OBi110 LINE Port:
- Allows you to keep your current land line service yet take advantage of the OBi device’s VoIP services.
- Provides for an emergency calling services route when connected to a service supporting the same.
- Acts as a gateway and bridge to the PSTN for calls originating on a VoIP service from a remote OBi device or soft phone.

The OBi110 has a port for connecting to traditional land lines.

For people who do not have a land line, the OBi100 is the perfect choice. It is smaller than the OBi110, yet features identical VoIP calling functionality.

The OBi100 is a 'pure' VoIP' phone adapter.
