Norstar VoIP Gateway imageThe Norstar VoIP Gateway is a four port VoIP trunk-side networking solution that enables voice applications to be handled over the data infrastructure. The VoIP Gateway allows existing small multi-site Norstar customers to enter into the VoIP environment in a cost effective manner while providing an opportunity for large multi-site companies with Norstar systems to migrate their voice network to IP at their own pace.

The Norstar VoIP Gateway is an external box that interfaces to the Norstar CICS and MICS system over up to four loop start analog lines, providing a 10/100 Base T Ethernet connection LAN.
