This application enables voice connections to landline, cellular network and VoIP. Phoner can be used as a softphone on stationary and mobile computer devices attached to analogue or digital (ISDN) subscriber lines and as an SIP client.
What modes does Phoner support?
SIP is the most used protocol for establishing voice calls over IP connections. By supporting SIP, Phoner can contact a wide range of peers like Asterisk and countless VoIP providers. the advantage is, that only a functional Internet connection is necessary.
If the PC is connected to a PBX or PSTN with an ISDN terminal adapter , all supplementary services can used, that are supported by the CAPI . The PC then acts like a normal ISDN phone. CAPI drivers will be provided by the manufacturer of the ISDN hardware.
TAPI is a generic interface for all kinds of communication hardware. That can be a PBX,a telephone or a built in PC hardware. This wide range of possibilities is a disadvantage on the other side This is the reason for the stopped development of this mode in Phoner.
