Is a TDM400P all i need?


#1

Hi, i have 6 analog phone lines from verizon. can i just build a pc and install two TDM400P cards and plug the verizon lines directly into them? then just buy some cisco sip phones and connect them to my network? is that all the hardware i need? then of course configure asterisk…

Sounds like enough to me. Just make sure the TDM400P’s have the right personality daughter boards on them (determines whether the ports are FXS vs. FXO ports.)

yeah i researched a little more after posted my question… so i would need 6 FXO daughter boards right?

Yes. You would need 6 FXO ports. It may be easier for you to get a channel banker. I know some one on the asterisk-biz list (store.digium.com/ .
