I am planning a possible configuration change, and I’d like to get your input on it.
We currently have a NEC PBX System. We have PRI lines connecting our 2 offices. The PBX at each site connects to a Kentrox Satellite 932, which in turns connects to the PRIs. This allows each site to call one another.
We have a data connection between the sites and I’d like to find a way to use that connection to facilitate the communications.
This is what we currently have:
NEC PBX ------- Kentrox ------ NIU --------pri -------- NIU----------- Kentrox ------ NEC PBX.
This is what I am considering:
NEC PBX ---- Kentrox ---- Serial Port_2821 Router _ Fa Port ------ IP/Ethernet data connection ------ FastEthernet Port_1811 Router _ Serial Port ------Kentrox------ NEC BPX
So basicly, I would be using the routers to simulate the pri. The idea is that I could conver the converstation from the Kentrox into SIP or SCCP and then convert it back at the other router.
Is this even possible? Could I do it with WIC cards or would I need VIC cards?
Would the voice configuration require a certain level of IOS on the router?
What type of configuration examples should I be looking at?
