Hello, we are moving from analog phones to SIP running on trixbox or freepbx.
We have 1 SIP trunk for testing and we can call internall, outgoing, and incomming just fine.
My question is what do we do on the day we go live?
I know how to add SIP trunks, do I create a new trunk for each phone number that is being switched from our current analog system to the SIP system? Telephone company#1 handles our current analog phone system and manages the phone computer and voicemail computer in this building. Company#2 provides our Fiber Optic and will also provide a seperate fiber connection dedicated to the SIP phone system.
I have a list of our current phone numbers - what exactly will I do with them. Also they are all the same unlimited plans, no special long distance or anything. Do I just make a new trunk and change the name and context to the phone number I am entering?
One of the telephone SIP techs said the dedicated SIP line was NOT on the Internet, just went to their office. Does this mean it is secure and no software or hardware firewall is needed?
How do I tell freePBX that all incomming lines go to the IVR? I have it set now so that “any DID any CID” goes to the IVR, but again we only have 1 trunk running.
