250 analog phones


I got a hotel customer who wants to keep their analog phones for a while and migrate in a slow pace. Initially they want to keep around 250 internal analog lines. Any suggestions? Would 12 * 24 port cards do (1AEX2406EF) ?

Another option might be a couple of 8 port T1/E1 cards like the TE820, connecting multiple servers to multiple channel banks. But starting small with a single server, single port T1 card, and single channel bank – to see how the phones work – might make for a good demo and test run.

We are actually running 9 Audiocodes MP124 24 ports with asterisk 13.5 without any problems.
It might be an option for you.
