I have Televantage server with Toshiba DKT2010, DKT2020 digital phones and voice T1(23 trunks). We have failover voice T1 other than the primary voice T1. So, the phone line is fine.

However, I'm looking for any cheap, simple PBX which can be kept as a backup to replace televantage server 7. Do you know any recommendation? We operate more phones, but for this backup pbx, if it can handle 10 phones, 1 incomming call queue, takes voice T1 should be fine until we fully recover the main televantage pbx.

I tried many different voip, sip service, but it doesn't seem working well. So voip,sip is not my options. As long as I have voice T1 line, I need to utilize for the situation when Televantage fails.

Have you looked at Asterisk?

I looked at it a while ago. It seems it lakes documents how to set up, what hardware is required for voice T1. When I click more on the website, it brings to commercial PBX manufacturer.

If you have implemented Asterisk, can you share some basic info?

It also looks as it only supports IP/SIP lines, not voice digital PRI

Asterisk is just the PBS software itself.  I've experimented with it, but not used it in production, so I'm no expert, but can help you track down the answer to specific questions.

There is a tremendous amount of documentation, both on the Asterisk web site, as well as by third party integrators and users.

They own Digium now, so that's the interface solution they promote.  I'd be surprised if that's the only one they're compatible with, however.  That said, Digium does offer a line of digital PRI interface cards.

i called Digium, seens like the card is a converter, PRI to SIP. And all client based devices working with Asterisk is sip based phones.

It's not a problem I put SIP soft phones at our workstation so that the softphones and Asterisk server will replace our currently PBX and Toshiba phones but keeps our PRI line, which is good.

To interface Asterisk for administration, does Asterisk provides administrator interface or have to use Digium provided interface solution?

Citel has a digital to SIP converter, if that helps.

I've only ever used the administrative interface (via web browser) that came with Asterisk.  I don't know about anything anyone else offered.

You can download the software itself for free and evaluate the interface and the SIP features, if that helps.
