Linking 2 ICSs via PRI

Linking 2 ICSs via PRI

Linking 2 ICSs via PRI

We have a situation where 2 sights are connected via
a T1 now. We want to change to PRI so we get more
info to the remote sight. We activated PRI enabler
code at each sight and tried switching but they
didn't seem to connect. whenever you try calling
across it says "no Free lines".
In programming on the main side it says 24 lines
on the remote sight it says 1 loop. We didn't
make any progress so for the shortterm we went back
to T1. Am I missing something?

RE: Linking 2 ICSs via PRI

What Rls of Software has each site got? While I have not ever done what you are trying to do, precisely,  it is my understanding that Rls 5.0 includes a new feature to make your kind of situation easier to impliment.

RE: Linking 2 ICSs via PRI

you need 2ea DTI cards in the host in order to complete this. One for the point to point connection and the other for the PRI.
