HCX5000 Info

I am in the process of replacing an HCX5000. Know next to nothing of the PBX. Part of the process in doing this we create a port map of all analog extensions at the blocks at the cable coming from the PBX.
We try to use existing cable connectors where possible and we simply connect our 25 pair cable direct to the cable that came off the existing PBX. Sometimes if we do not get the correct gender information from whomever does the site survey we have gender changers sent to site. This is a not an issue. However , for this particular install we came across in our port mapping that they are as suspected using all 24 pair on the amphenol cable but the analog extensions came up as follows. Just an example : 7101,7101,7102,7102,7103,7103 all the way to 7112,7112. This meaning that in our finding we will have to move half the cross connects for us to our pre-configured units and cables. This is fine as we often come across this with other tyeps of PBX. Sometimes we get lucky and others we find only 8 analog extensions per 25pr cable.
My question is, as you can see each extension shows the 2 extensions with the same #. I have seen this done with Avaya systems. Is this done per port and they are actually same extension per port or is this done via CID manipulation?

RE: HCX5000 Info

Don't know the system at all. But they're likely hybrid extensions> 4 wire digital, 2 wire analogue.

Poopy bubbles!
