Default Anyone here know where I can learn telecom?

I've been tasked with taking over the phone systems here and the most telecom work I've ever done was using a punch down tool.

Are there any books out there on how the basics work, etc.? Things like PBXs, DIDs, etc. etc.

RTFM biyotch.

No really, PBXes are cake. Crack open the manual and all you need is in there. It's nowhere near as complex as, say, systems administration IMHO.

well, it's just 250 employees, 3 sites...connected via T1 lines.

nothing special I'm sure, but I hate not really knowing the foundation of how things work.

You'll probably need to know the provisioning for the T1's. You'll need to get that info from your carrier. You'll need to know the coding (b8zs, ami, or jbzs), framing (d4 or esf), facilities data link (at&t, ansi, or none). If they are actually PRIs, you'll need to know the switch type as well. If they are actual channelised T1s, you'll need to know the signaling.

Most T1s in the US are provisioned as b8zs, esf.

Other than that, everything else should be pretty straight forward in the documentation.

Or you could build a free one with the Asterix open source software.

VoIP is handled by a Nortel Passport currently, and will be replaced by cisco equipment this year, but only for about 30 phones where IP phones make sense.

I'll stick with an actual semi-troublefree PBX where I can.

Welcome to my world. I was just handed over our Cisco VOIP system (running CM 3.3) and our tech support ACD. The hardest part is dealing with the telco terminology (see my rant from last week), but it's not too bad.

Right now we are in the process of converting our remote offices to VOIP and removing their PRI's. We'll be running their long distance out of our headquarter's T1 and local will be on a handful of POTS lines. Now we just have to hope that the Internets stay up.
