Basic MVP810 phonebook setup example with 8 PBX extensions (ext 310 - 317) connected to the FXO ports of a MVP810.

There are many possible ways to configure your phonebooks. This example offers information on the most-basic configuration. We assume you have IP connectivity between the sites and will not go into that.

First, some basics about the phonebooks. Basically, the Outbound Phonebook contains a list of numbers you are allowed to dial to reach remote MultiVOIP channels and the Inbound Phonebook contains the numbers a remote voip user can dial to call your voip. In the simplest sense, whatever appears in your Outbound Phonebook must appear in the remote unit's Inbound Phonebook to allow successful calling.

Here is information on a very basic configuration. The numbers used for Destination Patterns / Remove Prefixes are arbitrary (you can use whatever numbers you like). I chose simple numbers for purposes of illustrating the concept.

VOIP A (FXO) VOIP B (FXS)
192.168.1.10 192.168.2.10

OUTBOUND PHONEBOOK OUTBOUND PHONEBOOK

DESTINATION PATTERN = 101 DESTINATION PATTERN = 201
TOTAL DIGITS = 0 TOTAL DIGITS = 0
REMOVE PREFIX = BLANK REMOVE PREFIX = BLANK
ADD PREFIX = BLANK ADD PREFIX = BLANK
IP ADDRESS = 192.168.2.10 IP ADDRESS = 192.168.1.10
DESCRIPTION = WHATEVER YOU WANT DESCRIPTION = WHATEVER YOU WANT PROTOCOL TYPE = H.323 PROTOCOL TYPE = H.323

INBOUND PHONEBOOK INBOUND PHONEBOOK

REMOVE PREFIX = 201 REMOVE PREFIX = 101
ADD PREFIX = BLANK ADD PREFIX = BLANK
CHANNEL NUMBER = CHANNEL 1 CHANNEL NUMBER = CHANNEL 1
DESCRIPTION = WHATEVER YOU WANT DESCRIPTION = WHATEVER YOU WANT
CALL FORWARD = NOT ENABLED CALL FORWARD = NOT ENABLED

The above entries are sufficient for either VOIP to call channel 1 of the other. To enable calling between all channels, create 7 more entries in each VOIPs Outbound and Inbound Phonebooks, following the above patterns. For example you could use 102-108 as Destination Patterns in VOIP A's Outbound Phonebook, in conjunction with 7 more entries in VOIP B's Inbound using Remove Prefixes of 102-108, each mapped to channels 2-8, respectively. Conversely, you could create 7 more entries in VOIP B's Outbound using 202-208 along with 7 more entries in VOIP A's Inbound with Remove Prefixes of 202-208 mapped to channels 2-8, respectively. This information is intended to familiarize you with how the MVP810 phonebooks are formatted and should allow you to configure them in a manner to best suit your needs.
