Figures 3 and 4 show ATAs that appear to be the first fruits of its acquisition of Sipura earlier this year - essentially re-brands (with minor repackaging) of the equivalent Sipura products. I didn't get pricing or availability, but you can just check Sipura's site for product details.

You won't, however, find any info on the WBP54G Wi-Fi Dongle for VoIP seen in Figure 4. Paraphrasing the description I got from the Cisco rep, it's essentially an 802.11g-to-Ethernet adapter / bridge (think WET54G) in a cute little package. It's aimed at applications where you want to put a VoIP adapter, but don't have CAT5 run.

The most interesting find, however, was the SPA9000 Compact IP Key System (Figure 5) that was displayed next to an SPA941. I didn't have a chance to grab anyone to find out more details that night, but when I returned the next day to get a run down of all the products, the SPA9000 had vanished.

I asked a few Cisco folks about it, but it seemed like I was asking about Bigfoot. So all I can say is that I have proof that it exists and that it might be the first glimpse of the small business product hardware that Vonage CTO Louis Mamakos alluded to in our discussion at last year's fall VON.

Other vendors showing ATAs included ZyXEL, Clipcomm, ATCOM, and Grandstream. A quick stop at Grandstream didn't turn up any new products announced at this show, but instead the promise of new stuff coming next month. Grandstream's Handy Tone line now includes two non-routing and three NAT routing versions with various combinations of FXS, FXO and PSTN pass-through ports.

Clipcomm was showing its CG series of "VoIP gateways", along with its CP series of IP phones, which I'll touch on in the next section.
