Automated FXO Testing?

Brian Carscadden

I'm looking for a way to  automatically test and report on FXO/POTS line failures. I have a client  with an extensive SRST deployment and local POTS primarily for 911.  Service will largely lay dormant until the critical need arises. Anyone  know of a way to accomplish this testing either with IOS or a third  party dialer solution?

Thanks,

Brian

This is old post. Just adding response in case it helps others looking for similar answer. I did a similar solution little while ago.

It included a bash/expect script to telnet to 500+ devices and call out from 2 FXO ports on each device. I used CSIM START to call out from devices. Scrip was automated using cron jobs to run twice a week  and it calls out to same number from all devices. When all devices are done, script compares calling numbers to baseline data of calling numbers and prints out lines that didn't call out. That gives you bad lines to work on. Simple solution -saves a lot of time and money
