what exactly are you wanting to plug into the ATA? An analog phone? If so, what is it plugged into now, an FXS card on the voice gateway router?

Yes, ATA stands for "analog telephony adapter".

From CISCO ATA guide:

• Two RJ-11 FXS (Foreign Exchange Station) ports-The Cisco ATA supports two independent

RJ-11 telephone ports that can connect to any standard analog telephone device. Each port supports

either voice calls or fax sessions, and both ports can be used simultaneously.

Note The Cisco ATA186-I1 and Cisco ATA188-I1 provide 600-ohm resistive impedance. The

Cisco ATA 186-I2 and Cisco ATA188-I2 provide 270 ohm + 750 ohm // 150-nF complex impedance.

The impedance option is requested when you place your order and should match your specific

application. If you are not sure of the applicable configuration, check your country or regional telephone

impedance requirements.
