We have a PBX receiving an E1 (Nortel M1), the thing is we need to give a message for all incoming calls, and can’t do it on an extension of the Meridian because we need the DID calls to go directly to their destination.
So I’m planning to set up an asterisk and collect the calls on one E1, prompt the caller with the message and then route the calls through a second E1 to the Nortel PBX, keeping the DID/ANI information and hence being transparent to the Nortel PBX.
anyone done it?,
anyone think it is not possible for some reason? please share your thoughts before I got far too deep to back out.
