ISDN Phone Setup

Hi, I have been asked to set up a 4 ISDN phone lines for a business and I would like tips on the best way to do it.

From my research I know that I should order a BRI line from the telco and have them install it in the office. After that I plan on having the BRI terminate at an NT1 and from the NT1 into an ISDN telephone, a Tone Commander 6220 to be exact.

In simpler terms

BRI->NT1->ISDN Telephone.

My question is this. What is the best setup for terminating the NT1's and phones at the users work desk?

I do not want to terminate the NT1s in a telecommunications closet, I want each workstation to have its own NT1 termination. But, I want to ensure that I get to run two telephone lines off of each BRI.

Thanks in advance for any advice and input. PS, I have been looking for the right desktop NT1 that will meet my requirements but so far I have not been able to find any. Any sugestions will be welcomed, thanks.


Where are you located? USA?

Is this a #5 switch or a DMS100 (Lucent or Nortel)?

I just noticed you had a .mil address, so you might be off an SL100. Can you confirm?
