I am in the discovery phase of Operator for a 65 user company and would have to utilize PRI. Problem is their current PBX also has an output where 4 analog lines are connected to a fax server. Can Operator 3210 do this? Have a RJ45 output and then I can split that to this fax server?

Hi Nick,

Operator does not support Digium cards with the FXS ports. But you can easily replace that with an ATA or a SIP-to-FXS gateway.

Thanks, I'll look into this. So this device would allow multiple numbers to be handed off from Operator, and then converted to analog to be used with a fax server?

Does that make sense?

If the fax server only has analog input and they want to keep it, then using an ATA is the only way. You could also have direct analog lines that would bypass Operator.

Ok cool, that helps answer my question. I am also contemplating purchasing a separate Operator to handle JUST fax numbers. So I would have one Operator for voice and one for fax.

I rememeber seeing a post about having more than 100 routes, so that is why I am thinking about two boxes, unless that isn't a problem anymore?

Editing many numbers is not easy and also the dial plan generated for Asterisk gets more complex which might be an issue with some low-power CPUs.

You can have as many routes as you need, just managing many numbers on the external interface is more difficult.

Sorry to bring this up again ... but this is getting more real ...

So blunt question, can the Operator 3210 handle more than 100 call routes? Is there a better way to manage this many numbers? Can I modify Asterisk config directly? I see the Operator 3210 hardware specs state 150 concurrent calls, so obviously it can handle the traffic, and if I need (for growth) I could just buy another one and link them together?

Thanks!

The routing is simpler if you have 10 or 100 external numbers. Otherwise you need to enumerate all the external numbers which is difficult.

Load balancing/clustering is not supported. Is that what you are asking about?

So alot of these numbers are in chronological order, so that should make it easier, is that what you mean?

I am aware load balancing is not supported, just wondering if I could make use of the option to add external PBX?

Hi Nick,

If you have 10, 100, or 1000 external numbers, Operator lets you use a routing rule like the following:

(External) 55512XX <--> (Internal) 1XX

This is much simpler than enumerating all the external numbers on the interface.

You can create an interface that connects your Operator instance with another PBX. If you need to do call relay (routing calls arriving to an external number on PBX1 to some extension on PBX2), you will need to use speed dials on PBX1.
