Interfacing with Paging System on 2 Lines

Not sure if this is even possible, but figured I would ask.

We need to interface with a Valcom paging system with our voice gateway. No problem there as the Valcom only needs us to patch an FXO port to it's input and that works. The problem is that this site has two Valcom systems that run seperately. However, when they do an all page, they want it to page through both systems. I was planning to patch an FXO port to each system which will make it work, but that won't let them page to both simulateneously. They are currently using a Meridian system that somehow or another can open up a connection to both paging systems at the same time when the right pattern is pressed.

Here is ideally how it would work. I would have a route pattern like #1XXX that would page to the appropriate room number (XXX) on the 1st paging system. I would have a route pattern like #2XXX that would page to the appropriate room on the other paging system. And I would have a #9999 that would do an all page to both systems.

First, is this possible by simply using the FXO ports I currently have? If not, is there an adapter I can get that would let me page to both at the same time. I realize this might mean using 3 FXO ports and that is fine. I just need it to work.

Re: Interfacing with Paging System on 2 Lines

One of the easiest ways is to buy a Valcom V-9970 which is a trunk port adapter. On an analog gateway create your VGC phone and connect the V-9970 to the punchdowns for the VGC phone. From the V-9970 you run a pair to the paging system. This is a single port adapter so if you have multiple systems you will need multiple 9970's.
