The company has an agreement with an internet connectivity provider for a high quality IP link between the two offices. The company requires a PBX system at the head office, with internal extensions at both office locations, the two offices SIP trunks and PSTN trunks provided for call routing at the head office location.

Configuration:

Both the head office and the branch office are provided with Com.X units.

Extensions:

  • Head office extensions configured as 101 – 105

  • Branch office extensions configured as 201 – 205

Sip trunk configuration:

  • Head office SIP trunk configured as provider

  • Ensure that Proxy, NAT, connection qualification and codec selection options are configured appropriately.

Outbound route configuration:
