Executech N0820 installation
« on: October 07, 2014, 05:33:45 PM »

New member here. I am doing volunteer IT work for Habitat for Humanity. They just moved their offices and would like to have a PBX. Someone donated the above unit. They currently have three lines from Comcast. I'm reasonably skilled at working with hardware & software, but I am wondering if I am going to be going in over my head trying to install this. I've looked at the manual and it doesn't look like it would be all that bad. Is it reasonable to believe that a very tech savvy person could install one of these? Or does it require specialized knowledge that only a real phone tech would possess? Or special equipment? They exist on a tiny budget and rely a lot on donations and volunteers, so a pro install is out of the question.

That system uses two pair of wires for telephone connection and it may not work well with simulated lines due to voltage requirements.  That system is over 20 years old and not worth installing. Someone should be able to donate and install a used system much newer than that, I do it here all the time.
