Obi202 2-Port VoIP Phone Adapter with Router and USB
With Support for Four (4) SIP and OBiTALK VoIP Services

The Obi202 is designed for home and small business use. Via the OBi202’s two on-board phone connections as well as via the Internet to other OBi endpoints via Obihai’s free OBiTALK network or up to four (4) available VoIP services, you have the power to make and receive phone calls and faxes as well as bridge mobile, fixed line and Internet telephone services. It also offers integrated router and USB port.

The OBi202 is targeted at Internet phone service providers world-wide, as well as power-users of Google Voice and literally hundreds of Bring Your Own Device SIP services. The OBi202's innovation and sophistication in the areas of speech technology, voice traffic prioritization, call management and ease of set-up are catalysts that will ignite excitement among consumer and small business users who want the best product for their VoIP communication needs.

Easy to Set Up and Use

Based on comments from Obihai customers, there have never before been VoIP devices that can be setup so easily and used immediately, with absolutely no prior technical knowledge of VoIP or voice & data networking by the end-user. The OBi202 is no different than its brothers, the well-reviewed and market-leading OBi100 and OBi110 VoIP phone adapters. When used in conjunction with the www.OBiTALK.com web portal, anyone can have an OBi up-and-running – making and receiving calls in minutes.

Fully-Matrixed VoIP Service Routing with Four VoIP Services and OBi-to-OBi Calling

Phones connected to the OBi202’s 2-phone ports are able to access any of up-to-four (4) SIP or Google Voice services and the OBiTALK OBi-to-OBi calling network to make and receive free and low-cost calls from across town or to anywhere in the world.

A Mini-Phone System via Phone Collaboration

While the OBi202 phone ports can function independently with any of the available VoIP service providers and OBiTALK, the OBi202 also offers collaborative features which allow its phone ports to work together as a mini-phone system.

The user can dial a “#” key to call from one phone port to the other. Depending on the current state of the called phone, one of the following can happen:

- If the called phone is idle, it will ring normally with a Caller-ID indicating the call is coming from the phone connected to the other phone port of the same OBi202.

- If the called phone is already on a call, the calling phone can automatically join the call.

- If the called phone is on-hook with a call holding, the calling phone can pick up / resume the call.

- If the called phone is ringing, the calling phone will pick-up and answer the incoming call.

The Industry's Most Comprehensive SIP-Based VoIP Platform

Service providers Vonage, MagicJack, Nettalk, Ooma and Skype (via FREETALK) do not currently support anything other than their own device, locked-down to only their service. Obihai devices, on the other hand, can be used with a multitude of services – actually four at the same time. The OBi202 can be used with any Internet phone service that supports the SIP open standard. For example, the OBi202 may be used with hundreds of Bring-Your-Own-Device service providers like; Anveo, Callcentric, VoicePulse, VoIP.ms. By using the www.OBiTALK.com web portal, customers can easily set-up the OBi202 with their BYOD service username and password. The OBi202 also supports the T.38 real time fax-over-IP standard protocol for reliable faxing over the Internet.

Native Support for Google Voice

From the telephones connected to the OBi202, anyone can make free calls in the USA and Canada. Users may also receive calls to their Google Voice phone number(s) and get new / unheard voice message notifications on the phones attached to the OBi202. If outside the USA or Canada, users may still use their Gmail account with the OBi202 to place calls to over 150 destinations worldwide at incredibly low rates – For example; USA and Canada for 1? per minute, India, China and Hong Kong for 2¢ per minute. Up to four (4) Google Voice accounts may be configured on the OBi202.

High-Speed Fast Ethernet Router or Bridge with Voice Call Traffic Prioritization

The OBi202 is designed on-top of a powerful purpose-built processing platform. The OBi202 is equipped with a one-port Fast Ethernet router with firewall and integrated quality of service (QoS) that ensures voice conversations are prioritized on the network, before all other traffic.

USB Port for Network Flexibility and Application Extensibility

The OBi202 USB port is designed to serve multiple purposes. Using the OBiWiFi Wireless Adapter, the OBi202 can be placed anywhere within range of an 802.11b/g/n access point. Or, the USB2.0 port can be connected to a storage device to enable local and remote access of digital files via the Internet by authorized users.

Cloud-Based Configuration and Software Management

The OBi202 includes the ability to be managed by the OBiTALK cloud configuration service. From anyplace where there is an Internet connection, OBiTALK allows users to add OBi devices, configure VoIP accounts and share services amongst their own OBi endpoints and those of their trusted friends. In-service software updates are easily performed either automatically from the OBiTALK portal or by dialing ***6 from a phone attached to the OBi device.

Zero-Touch Provisioning with Remote Management / Diagnostic Troubleshooting

With Obihai Zero-Touch provisioning (ZT), it is very easy for service providers to purchase OBi units in quantity and realize the benefits of touch-less provisioning to lower operational costs and speed-up customer deployments. OBi units provisioned via ZT can be fully customized so that the OBi factory default settings are those of the service provider and securely locked to the OBi device after initial power-up and ZT provisioning. Subsequent subscriber-targeted profile configurations can be directly served from the service provider’s network with security and reliability.

Complimentary to ZT, Obihai have a specialized web-portal for VoIP service providers. Via the portal, service provider support engineers can access each device individually to troubleshoot and configure specific parameter settings as well as set up and perform loop-back calls and other tests without requiring the end user subscriber’s assistance or intervention.

works for me, so far 12/25/2018 5:33:31 PM

Pros: - easy setup if you've already set up google voice

- easy to understand if you already have a separate phone you can test with

Cons: none so far

911 has to be added

Overall Review: for newbies

This is my first voip. I've been putting it off because I didn't want to hassle with the problems I knew I would encounter. I was nervous after reading the reviews but when this went on sale I thought why not. I don't use my landline much; spammers use it more than I do. I currently have cox as my ISP and phone and the service is ridiculous. It costs me about $20 a month for the phone and I have to pay them to keep my number out of the phonebook, plus another fee to not show my number. I can only make local calls and I can't get caller id without paying another $15 a month which is pretty useless since I can't block numbers anyway. I've thought about switching ISPs but the only other provider in my area (the old telephone service) wants $45 a month for phone. Anyway, the setup of this box was pretty straightforward and easy until I got to GV. Sure I use chrome and I'm logged into google all the time but I don't use anything except calendar so I wasn't sure what to expect. I wasn't sure what if anything I had to do on the GV side to set this up. Every time I tried configuring the line on the obihai website it kept giving me cryptic error messages after waiting and waiting. So I went to the GV site and for reasons unknown when I tried selecting a number it kept pointing me to numbers clear across the country. Fortunately, I did not pick one because as I learned later, GV charges a fee to switch numbers. Finally I got a local number and after that the configuration on obihai's website it showed I was configured and the line worked so hurrah. The GV website has a minimalist interface which I personally find very confusing. Fortunately if you scroll down the menu they offer an option to switch to the legacy interface and after doing that it all started to click. And since I kept my old phone service and I had a spare phone set I was able to test many of the features. GV is not perfect. The main reason I decided to try this is because I'm sick and tired of robocalls. I got to the point where I don't answer the phone at all because it seems with computer generated calls hang up right away if it goes to voicemail and they're less likely to call back but this ticks off friends and family who think I'm just ignoring them. With GV I get caller id and I can block numbers though it doesn't stop someone from using a different number. As far as I can tell you can't block 'anonymous' callers but you can configure it so your phone doesn't ring and it goes straigt to voicemail which is easy to skip thru on the web interface. So, so far I'm happy and I can cut the cord to my ISP. The only problem is that this doesn't have 911. You can add the service for a small fee but how do you know it works until you have to use it. My cell has 911 but I don't know how well that works and I'm not going to test it and tie up the 911 service so who knows. One thing to consider, and as far as I know it works this way, with my old ISP service if someone dials 911 the 911 operator knows the location where the call comes from, which you want for a variety of reasons. I'm not sure how this would work with a service added to this box. OBwhine - they threw the box in my yard and according to newegg customer service they don't have any control over delivery

Nothing but trouble, frustation and lack of customer support 12/14/2018 9:58:08 AM

Pros: none

Cons: Would not stay registered. Little or no response from customer support. Line 1 quit working within warranty period, requested replacement but could not get response from support. This unit had real problems but more troubling was the lack of customer support from Obihai. I think they were recently bought by another company but regardless I would avoid all their products I replaced unit with a Cisco SPA112 that has operated flawlessly.

(Update) Analog performance better than OBi200, BUT... it does not work with PhonePower out of the box! 11/1/2018 8:13:39 PM

Pros: This is a really nice ATA. There is no analog noise on the line, unlike the OBi200.
It has two phone lines.
It can be used behind another router, or it has a router built in (only 10/100, so not that good).
It can work with many older wired phones, but some older phones need too much line current and may not work properly.

Cons: FW update in May 2018 and following ones (3.2.2.5898EX is the most recent) broke PhonePower (and perhaps other VoIP providers, but I don't know) - hence, I am subtracting one egg for this. The problem is that the device loses registration, so it will drop a call without warning and you will not be able to redial, even though you have a dial tone!
FW is updated automatically and cannot be rolled back to a prior version, without a lot of manual work (however, it is possible). There is a version that will work with PhonePower (3.2.2.5859EX) and automatic updates can be blocked in the Expert Configuration section so the configuration will remain stable.
OBi support seems to have gone downhill since Polycom acquired Obihai.
Manual configuration is not the easiest process, and if you have any technical issues, be prepared to spend a lot of time hacking it until you get it working.

Overall Review: Prompt shipping and easy ordering from Newegg, as usual!
Check with your desired VoIP provider (not just their web site, but forums too, and maybe call customer service) to make sure you won't have issues with this device. Also look at the Obihai support forums. Try it out as soon as you get it to make sure it will work, and return it if it doesn't.

After a lot of work with PhonePower and Obihai/Polycom, I now have something that is working reliably.

It does work with wired phones and internal house phone wiring, but you have to be *absolutely* certain that you are not still connected to the phone company's incoming wires or else you will blow out the device. This will not be covered under warranty! (I used completely separate pairs and rewired my phone jacks, but simply disconnecting the phone company wiring at the outside box will also work.)

There are not a lot of good ATA boxes left on the market.

Great VOIP device 8/26/2018 6:22:48 AM

Pros: I was able to setup 2 google voice numbers within 10 minutes and it worked flawlessly. I had dial tones on both lines and I have a verizon fios internet. Remember you should have a good internet provider for this to work well.

Cons: I have not tested the FAX line with this. From other reviews I believe if you can adjust the baud rate (reducing the baud rate) it will work as good as any fax machine. FAX depends on a good internet connection and it is more important than a voice line.

Overall Review: Yes definitely. Easy to setup and FREE phone calls to anywhere in USA and cheap calls to the rest of the world. This works with any phone best to use a cordless phone with 2 lines.If you only want one line then use OBi200
