Is SPA8800 working without PSTN lines when integrated with BE3000 ?

Hi Guys,

I have a SPA8800 configured with static ip address 192.168.1.2/24 and BE3000 with ip address 192.168.1.250 in the same network. I would like to connect a fax machine to SPA8800's  fxs port however there are no PSTN lines connected to FXO ports , will this fax machine work? 

All the technical documents for spa8800 i can find online only tell you how to integrate SPA8800 with  BE3000 with PSTN lines.  thus, the connection type between BE3K and SPA8800 is "FXO".  what if there are no PSTN lines available ?  can the fax machine send or receive faxes via ISDN E1/T1 service on BE3K ?

if the answer is yes, where are the configuration document links ?

Is SPA8800 working without PSTN lines when integrated with BE30

You can connect FAX machine to the FXS port of the SPA8800. There is no mandatory requirement to have FXO lines also connected to SPA8800. If you want to use E1-PRI line as PSTN connection for fax calls, that is fine as well.

One caveat is that fax-passthrough on E1 is supported.

Will review the admin guide to see if it requires update.

Thanks

Guys one more caveat. SPA 8800 does not get along with T38-SG3 combination. That shouldnt be a problem with E1.
