X16 System - How To Add Phones & Lines

Adding Phones:

Up to 16 digital telephones can be added to the system by connecting them to the digital extension ports, located on the left side of the communications server. Since there are only four digital ports on the unit, a splitter can be used to accommodate all 16 connections. Alternately, a data or telephone wiring technician can use a telephone connector block known as a "66 Block" to cross-connect cables together to accomplish the same outcome.

Adding Lines From The Telephone Company:

The X16 Communications Server supports up to four telephone company lines (also called "Central Office" or CO lines). Two additional CO lines are supported, then the communications server is equipped with an expansion module. The CO lines are connected to the ports on the communication server designated as central office ports.
