  • Two Mediatrix devices connected to a SIP Trunk

For example: Cascade for incoming calls:



Note: When all channels of the primary Mediatrix unit are in use and there is a new incoming SIP call, by default, a Busy SIP message will be sent to the IP-PBX. If the analog/digital link is down, an error message will be sent. In both cases, the new incoming call will fail.
