Quote from: kirkblackberry on March 16, 2023, 06:05:26 PMI see what you're saying, and I understand that I would probably have more functionality if I went the VoIP route. I guess maybe I should run some CAT5 and some phone lines to each one of the locations in case I decide to explore another method.

Quote from: dsk on March 17, 2023, 05:26:25 AMA single (POTS) phone need 2 wires, hopefully twisted as cat 3 or higher.A data transfer for an ATA well done by CAT5, and uses 2 of the 4 pairs. That makes using a data cable makes it possible to have data + 2 phones on the same cable. (or 2 data outlets) Both systems are designed to end in a HUB (PABX) pretty similar to a Hub with spokes.
Quote from: kirkblackberry on March 16, 2023, 07:08:03 PMYes, as long as I have one pair of wires I can always use it for traditional phone, that's a good idea that way I don't have to buy two different kinds of wire. With your design would each phone have its own extension like the way I would have it set up if I use this PBX? Because what we are mostly trying to accomplish is being able to call from phone to phone.
Quote from: markosjal on March 17, 2023, 03:08:33 PMEach phone would not HAVE to have its own extension. You can put two phones on the same ATA port if you want. That way it would work just like 2 phones on a single home phone line
