I recently purchased and set up the Obi1032. I have a few GV numbers that I setup with SP1, SP2 and SP3. We have a couple Asterisk based PBX devices in a couple different offices and I was able to set up SP4 and SP5 as extensions for each of those offices. I should probably reserve SP6 for a 911 server, but I also already have Anveo set up on an Obi200. ( I think it is strange that I can't use the same Anveo E911 account on the 1032.)
However, have another office that will soon be going to VoIP and I want to be able to use SP6 for that PBX. Maybe I don't need to keep 3 GV numbers...
Here is the main point of my post and my question:
If I can only have a combination of 6 GV or SIP connections, what is the point of having "12-lines" on the 1032? What are the uses of these "12 lines" as advertised.
I will also admit that I didn't see the fine print when deciding to purchase and when looking the Amazon main description, I thought the "12 lines" feature meant 12 SP. I can get by with just the 6.
