I have a Panasonc KX-T61610 PABX in the house and (until I completely replace it) I am using an SPA3102 to connect it to Trixbox.  The SPA3102 works as expected with one exception and that relates to intercepting an incoming call from a cordless phone attached to the Panasonix PABX. 

When I go off-hook using one of the cordless phones in the quiet period between rings, the call ringing stops, it appears to have taken the call, but the caller is not there. If I go off-hook during the ring cycle i.e. whilst the handset is ringing, it takes the call perfectly.

Unfortunately there are a lot of pieces in the puzzle:  Trixbox --> SPA3102 --> Panasonic PABX --> Cordless Phone.

So I wondered if anyone else has experienced this behaviour and found a solution in the SPA3102 or Trixbox extension config that helped?

Cheers Mike

Hi vespaman

Trunk one (CO1) on the Pana is connected to the SPA3102, which is configured as an extension in trixbox.  So, from the analog phones hooked to the Pana, I dial 9 to connect to Trixbox and then dial out as though I were using an IP phone.  Incoming calls are handled by Trixbox, which directs them to the appropriate Trixbox "extension" reserved for the Pana, then via the SPA3102 appearing as an incoming call on CO1.

I do not have a PSTN line any longer so the need for the Pana is reducing, I would just like to keep it in service for a while longer until I have the whole house VOIP.

PS: From your sig I gather you might be a Vespa man. I purchased a GTS250ie just before xmas - and love it to bits. Don't know why I waited so long before getting back onto two wheels!

Cheers Mike

Hello Mruane,

I installed those old panas when they were new, so pretty basic is what they are. I'd be guessing some sort of signalling(ringing cadence or ringing voltage) differences between internal(extn) pana calls and the SPA. As you know there are a few settings in the SPA so better the devil you know perhaps ?
Yes I have 2 Vespas - PX200 ride and a 57 Douglas handlebar restoration(nearly easier to get parts for that then to fault find your set-up) Laughing
