Experts,

If I have about 20 fax machines and I want to order a PRI just for the faxes, what kind of hardware (voice gateway?) will I need to convert PRI to analog for faxing use?

Will I need 20 ATAs or is there a single device?  What does the PRI plug in to?

Thanks in advance.

you can use a PRI gateway like

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170507782933&rvr_id=129433344966&crlp=1_263602_263622&UA=%3F*I7&GUID=a6a5836412a0a0a9f4d5d9f5fe2c70b9&itemid=170507782933&ff4=263602_263622

Or you can purchase a card for a gateway router.

Once you have it into your VoIP network you can purchase a multi line ATA like this one (http://www.grandstream.com/products/gxw_series/gxw400x/gxw4024.htm) it supports 24 phone lines and would let you connect them all back to you legacy phone network.  No new wires needed.

If all you want is to connect a bunch of fax machines to a PRI then your best option is to get a channel bank that will break a PRI into 30 FXS ports. One example is  http://www.valiantcom.com/brochures/VCL_PRI_ISDN_Multiplexer.pdf   I am sure you can find a budget simple channel bank that will break a PRI into FXS ports.
A voice gateway will be a very very expensive option. I do not recommend it unless you want to integrate it with an IP PBX.
A VG224 by itself does not support PRI. It only has 24 FXS ports.
