Hi murefu10,

The first thing you need to think about is "contention".  This is the number of central modems compared to the number of remote sites.

How often will the remote sites be connected, and for how long each time?  How critical is it that they can get through when they need to?

For example:
If you have remote workers who cannot work unless the line is up, you'll have a 1:1 ratio.  This is, 1 central modem for each remote modem.
If all you need to do is occasional sending of mail from remote email servers, you won't need a dedicated modem port for each remote site.

This is the first thing you need to work out.  It will form the basis of what you do next.

Modem banks are a collection of modems, generally with the same phone number.  Dependant on how intelligent they are, they can deal with the call in it's entirity.  The name covers a wide variety of different pieces of equipment.

Can you please let me know the answer to the above question?  We'll then be able to advise you further.

Also, do you have ISDN2 (BRI) or ISDN30 (PRI) available at your central site?  ISDN could well be the most effective approach.
Finally, do you want your remote sites to connect into an actual server - or just connect to the network itself?  You can either attach modems/ISDN terminal adapters to a server/PC - or use a router or remote access device for this purpose.

I hope that this helps - let me know if I can be of any further help.

murefu10,
Eek - sorry, I thought I'd replied to this one.

I obviously didn't click Submit properly!

Right - thanks for the info.

The next question depends on what's available in terms of telecoms.  I don't know what country you're in, so I'm not going to assume anything.

You'll need 10 lines as the remote users must be able to work.  Your options are:

ISDN30 with 10 channels
5x ISDN2 lines
10x PSTN analogue lines

I'd advise going the ISDN route if at all possible.

Take a look at the Eicon options for ISDN PCI cards at - http://www.eicon.com/worldwide/products/MediaGateways/all-in-one.htm

If you do need to use analogue lines, speak to your telco about it.  They should be able to provide the lines with all the same telephone number - in the UK this is called "auxiliary working".

If you need to go analogue, take a look at the Multitech options at:
