FXOs or Foreign eXchange Offices are those little ports in your phones or fax machines at home or in your office, into which you plug the phone cable in. This is where ring voltage, battery current and dial tone enters your device.
It is always combined with an FXS or Foreign eXchange Subscriber, which is the plug on the wall, providing the analog line. If you have a PBX (Private Branch eXchange)you can install it between the FXO and the FXS, to give you the connection between the analog phone system or the traditional pbxs and the VoIP system or to install it to each other via the Internet.
You can also connect your traditional phone to the internet if you obtain a certain device that can synchronize several technical devices. These are called adapters, or ATA's (Analog Telephone Adapters, which connect Internet-based telephone system to the analog system) in our case. This is the agent, through which direct communication happens between an analog phone and a VoIP server without installation of any further programs.
