These devices are used by customers of Deutsche Telekom as ISDN-to-SIP gateways. Currently there doesn’t seem to be much public information about it, so I’ll make a start.
Deutsche Telekom offers broadband network connectivity and telephony services via a combined ADSL2+ and LTE router, the Speedport Hybrid, which unfortunately comes without ISDN S0 ports. Attempts to use other ISDN-to-SIP gateways behind a Speedport Hybrid have failed for reasons still to be determined. Plus, there’s no known router available which could replace the Speedport Hybrid without losing its unique channel bonding feature. So if you want to keep using your PBX, the Speedport ISDN Adapter inevitably comes into play.
[Edit: According to a blog post at qyz.de, the information regarding other ISDN-to-SIP gateways is obsolete.]
The adapter features one 10/100 Mbps ethernet connector and two ISDN S0 connectors.
When the device starts up, the following network activity can be observed:
- Requests IPv4 settings via DHCP
- Obtains network time from ntp1.t-online.de or ptbtime1.ptb.de (port 123/udp)
- Requests external IPv4 address via STUN from stun.t-online.de (port 3478/udp)
- Requests settings from https://acs.t-online.de/ (using a client certificate)
- Optionally requests a firmware update from http://fw-acs.t-online.de:8880/, probably depending on the reply to the previous request.
- Registers at the SIP server _sip._udp.tel.t-online.de (SRV record)
Upon removal of two rubber feet from the bottom of its casing, two Philips screws appear. Unscrewing them allows to open the device. The PCB features a Lantiq PXB 4210 EL processor and has a serial port connector.
