Deat Daren, Here are details

Deat Daren,


Here are details of EPABX


1)Make of EPABX: Crompton Greaves
2)Model: NODEX-NE-1200
3) It will not Support LAN Port
4) IT will not Support Digital Trunk lines
5) It will support only Ordinary Digital Exchange Trunk lines similar to taht of BWTL/BWTD (Both Way Trunk Dial)/Both Way Trunk- Loop), E&M Trunk with certain restrictions.
6) The existing exchange not even VOIP compatible or ISDN Compatible.


Honestly, I think you are

Honestly, I think you are flogging a dead horse keeping that EPABX in place. As a matter of interest what is the main reason for doing this? cabling?


If your only option is E&M, then you will need to use a Cisco VoiceGateway with E&M VICs.


how many of these E&M trunks are we talking about?
