I have FreePBX running on a Hyper-v virtual machine. Currently my local lines come from my ISP in the form of 4 sim cards inserted into an adapter that provides then standard pstn lines which I plug into a Grandstream GWX4108 then connects through a sip trunk to the PBX.
My ISP would like to provide me with an E1 line (Also known in the US as a T1 or a J1 in Japan). I’m wondering how I will connect their channels to FreePBX. I have read in places that E1 card is what i need for the PBX, but since the PXB is running on a virtual service I don;t want to install the card on the hyper-v server.
Is there a standalone Adapter I can use similar to the GWX4108 to convert to sip through my local LAN? Or is there a better way? Or am I missing the point altogether?
Appreciate your help!
