Porting over phone number to another circuit
Posted on 2016-10-11
I have a customer who has a bank of 300 phones numbers that come in via SIP trunks over a 50Mbps Comcast Cable circuit. I am going to install Cisco CME and Unity Connection for a portion of the business. Their old phone system will service another entity in the business that is less critical. So I have to split up these 300 phones numbers to put about 1/2 of them on the new system.
On their data network, they have a Comcast enterprise fiber circuit they just installed, its a lot more reliable then the cable modem they use to bring in the SIP trunks now, and the SLA is way better. So for the portion of the business I am installing the Cisco VOIP in, I want to know if its possible to port over 150 phone numbers from the bank of 300 they have from the current Comcast cable modem to the Comcast enterprise fiber. Meaning I want to split them up so I have a 150 on the cable modem for the old less critical system, and 150 on the fiber. Its the same provider, just different circuits. I just want to know if this is possible. Thanks!
