Hey there, I'm an old phone tech and I'm looking to expand from regular telephone systems into the VOIP market.
What I need to know is whether a VOIP system can be hooked to regular dial-tone?
I basically want to hook the telephone numbers into the system, let the phones in my customers office have access to these lines, and use the VOIP side of things to connect a remote office on the other side of the state.
I need to be able to connect anywhere between 1-20 phone numbers and 1-60 telephone sets.
Can anyone help me out or point me towards a model that will do this?

Right now for 20 numbers you might consider using a T1 instead, take a look at the cost of 20 FXO interfaces and lines against 1 T1 card and interface from telco. Just a thought.
For that amount of analog interfaces for phones you might consider VG224 or VG248 which provide 24 and 48 FXS interfaces.
