    I have a client with a Muzak DMA series paging amp that I need to interface with 3cx. It is currently on an old Toshiba system using the telephone input on the amp. It has music input which plays on ceiling speakers until they page.

    Any ideas on how to interface this successfully with 3CX?

    These old paging systems typically have an FXS port on them (some will support either FXS for FXO). Simply connect a small FXS gateway to your 3CX (attaches via Cat5 to your network) and connect the paging system (attaches to the gateway via FXS), and then the paging system becomes just another extension on the 3CX system.

    Paging System <-----> FXS Gateway <---->Network Switch <----> 3CX Server
