That depends. How reliable is your current phone system? If you 
lose power, do you lose phones? What sort of UPS capability do 
you have? If power goes out, does your network connection go 
out? Do you have enough bandwidth? How's the latency to your 
VOIP gateway?

Not with the SPA941. There are boxes which will do that, 
reasonably cheaply ($70-100).
