The thing I struggle with most is getting the correct parts. I have spoken with two VARs and gotten two conflicting answers. I thought I would open it up here.
I have a remote site that is very small. I plan to purchase a 2901 ISR to configure as the Gateway within our Call Manager. I would then route the calls locally over POTS lines. Which module or card do I need to plug in my POTS lines.
I have both a VIC3-4FXS/DID and a VIC2-4FXO card. Which one will allow me to utilize the inbound and outbound calls on the POTS lines to work?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for confirming what I know to be true, but I must ask. What would be an application of a FXS card? It is for me to run an RJ-11 cable to an analog phone while the FXO card is for me to run an analog line into our system? Am I grasping this correctly?
FXS can be used for any analog types of services. For example a fax machine can be connected to an FXS port for outbound use. I have them connected to Paging devices, postage machines, etc.
Correct. It is important to say too, that you can configure your FXS card to use it as a SCCP device, so you can create an ephone and ephone-dn for each FXS port.
I have certainly fallen victim to that before. Thank you for the reminder. If you buy a "Voice Bundle" it comes with the PVDM3-16. This of course is not enough when a full T1 is involved....
