Hi guys
At work we have 8 extensions off a pbx with 2 incoming pots lines going into it.

The boss wants to get voip lines (well is getting), I'm not sure who through. Instead of using the two voip phones he got, can I use the routers Ata and connect both lines of that into the pbx to continue using all 8 extensions as we currently are?

Yep you can do exactly that. Just ensure your ata is set up properly to mimic NZ pstn lines as your pabx may not function properly without hearing NZ tones for busy etc.
Must will be fine though with an ata.

Many routers do a very poor job of this as they don't support features such as clear forwarding so the PBX can correctly detect a hang up. A good ATA such as a Cisco will support this.

 

So yes in theory it will work, but YMMV as to how well it works without knowing the exact hardware.

The PBX will function fine  using the default tone plan that goes with an ATA..
