Asking ATA -->Asterisk


Want to know, can i put the analog line in the ATA as the inbound and outbound for asterisk. Cause most people i saw using fxs/fxo pci card at the asterisk machine.

Drawing like this :

Telco Line —>ATA/Analog gateway—>Asterisk —>client extension

Is there any one experience of this ?

only some ATA’s work.

I think the card solution is the better, as, to do this, the ATA is another box in the setup. With a card, everyting is handled on bord the server and I am generally happiest with this!
