Smart PhoneX, an Internet of Thing (IoT) device to bridge landlines (PSTN, PBX) and smart cell phones, replacing traditional corded or cordless phones. Smart PhoneX, an innovative product based on VoIP technologies, works as a gateway (bridge), enabling landline calls to be received and to be issued from cell phones, such as Android and iOS phones andtablets. More importantly, internet-connected Cell phones, can make and receive landline calls, at cheaper local rate or even free-of-charge. Smart PhoneX is an ideal IoT gateway for smart homes (e-Homes), SOHO, SMB, Hotel Chains, etc. applications.

Existing contact list in the Cell phones and call-log can be used conveniently for dialing out from landline (PSTN) and with valid landline caller ID, which can be used directly for call-back. This is a sharp difference from SkypeOut or other VoIP off-net services, via which the callee can neither know the real caller’s ID, nor return calls.

Incoming landline Caller IDs are notified immediately to internet-connected Cell phones, anywhere in the world. Moreover, the missed incoming calls can be forwarded to Cell phones via internet at no additional landline or cell phone charge. Cell phones can also call home for free via the optional FxS port, connecting to (corded or cordless) phones.

Smart PhoneX is an embedded device, providing one RJ11 port to landline (PSTN, PBX), one RJ45 and an WiFi connection to internet AP Router. It offers “plug-and-play” registration to cloud-based services with the one-touch secure pairing button. Its voice is NAT-friendly in that it does not require a public IP via PPoE or the tedious hole-punching for NAT traversal. Smart PhoneX delivers crystal-clear, full-duplex and echo-free voice quality, thanks to the leading VoIP technologies.

Smart PhoneX features can be available as a USB adapter to be integrated into NAS, Media Server, Set-top Box, Home Server, and WiFi AP Router. OEM/ODM and other partnerships are all welcomed. As an IoT device, Smart PhoneX also collects vital call history which may be valuable for Big Data Analytics.
