Hi I am currently looking at various IP-PBX and learning how to use them. I am happy with the connection to VOIP providers and setting up IP phones to connect to them etc. What I am looking at now is connecting the IP-PBX to the PSTN using a FXO gateway. (For failure over purposes, and just trying out the routing of calls, and for the IP-PBX to pick up the incoming PSTN calls as well).
What I was wondering is are there any FXO gateways for sale in New Zealand that come with a Telepermit, or have I missed some thing. (I have been looking around various websites but I can't seem to find any)
Snappernet are the NZ distributors and they have a lot of resellers.
A Telecom (or Choruspermit as it's now known) is legally required on any piece of hardware connected to the PSTN, or for any VoIP hardware (even if it's SIP) that is used to interconnect calls with the PSTN. Whether you choose to abide by the rules or not is like everything else in life.
