Anyway you can choose SkyATA if you are a heavy Skype user, so you don’t worry about incoming landline call when you are on a Skype call. The worldwide smallest USB dongle – SkyATA is suitable for you to carry during a business trip.
For office application, SkyATA is a good option if office has a free trunk line. If there is no spare PBX trunk line, SkyBox S1 can be connected between telecom carrier line and PBX trunk line.
