We’re eliminating our router-based FXS and FXO ports and looking for something that can provide SIP connectivity to our existing paging systems: we dont want to do forklift upgrades of the paging systems in multiple facilities.
My questions are:
Can we use the HT800 series ATAs to connect to most paging systems (we have several different flavors)?
Would it support dtmf zone codes for those systems using DTMF to select zone or allpage?
How would you handle a paging system that requires page-port input?
could we use a HT813 for a site that did zoning via separate inputs? how would you ‘all page’?
could you use one port of a HT802 for a site with a single zone (or using DTMF passthrough) and the second port as a nightring port?
I will mention our phone system is a Cisco CUCM 11.5.
If anyone has experience with this type of configuration and/or knows any of the answers to these questions Id love to hear from you.
