I’m an computer programmer, not a phone or super duper IT guy, so be gentle…
I have 100+ retail store locations and our legacy phone equipment has finally had it’s day. We are handed analog dial tone from our ISP (they call it a smart T1 and it gives use both data and phones from an Adtran unit). We simply take a Panasonic KX-TA824 phone system and 6 phone extensions and it just works. Costs about 800-1000 bucks per store to do this.
Can I do something without having to immediately contact our phone carrier. I just take 6 RJ-11 phone jacks plug them into as Asterisk compatible card, then the existing phone units (or cheap generic ones) into some other card and all is happy???
Looking for some recommendations also for equipment. I’d like no moving parts (SSD, etc) if possible.
Thanks for any information you can provide.
