I’m new to the site and not sure where to post. Any advice is appreciated. I’m a well versed “phone guy”, not so well versed IT guy, and diving into SIP, so please excuse my ignorance.
I have a rather unique situation. Campus environment with some more remote sites, already over-subscribing PRI’s (to multiple PBX and channel bank) via Adtran Atlas 830. Currently utilize “leased P2P T-1” to feed remote sites. I need (advise/what gear) to feed SIP trunk to FreePBX across LAN that will have a PRI fed by Adtran Atlas. The FreePBX resides on a server in separate building from the PRI’s and Adtran gear, so I can’t just plug them together. I also want to find/test a possible solution to replace the P2P T-1 down the road.
I have and use an Adtran Total Access 908e. It works OK, but seems to “not like” certain equipment (linksys SPA), and seemed limited to certain types/protocols etc. when setting up the SIP trunk. I never got a SIP trunk to function properly from 908e to the Linksys SPA (with Adtran support), but the Linksys worked fine to several SIP providers.
Bottom-line, what’s a good place to look for a PRI to SIP conversion? While I’m wishing, I want something that’s compatible with FreePBX/Asterisk, reliable, easy to install, and most of all inexpensive? I know, **** in one hand and wish in the other.
