I'm not sure this is the right forum for this, but it's not Stackoverflow so...
I'm trying to figure out an architecture to solve the following problem, maybe someone here can help:
I have a T1 with 23 fax lines coming into the building. I have a computer (Macintosh XServe) running Hylafax. If I had one POTS line, I'd be done. However, I have no idea how to get the T1 into the Mac...
Options I've considered:
- some sort of PCI T1-modem (Does that exist?)
- Splitting the T1 into 23 POTS lines and then connecting 23 analog modems to the mac, either via an external modem bank (Do they still make those?) or via some sort of external PCI bank, which will allow me to use more than 2 4-port modem cards.
- Either the T1 or the split POTS lines going into some intermediate device and then transfering the images over IP, or USB to the mac.
- Really, any other option I can come up with
This has GOT to be a problem that someone has already solved, right?
