We are currently looking to get Verizon to setup DID services on our fax
line so that we can use the DID information to route incoming faxes to
particular users/groups. According to the Verizon rep, they only sell
DID's in blocks of 20's.
At the moment, we have not invested in any particular hardware for the
You'll want to review the hardware manuals to get this information, but
First, I have been asked to provide Verizon with the following
information before they can even provide me with a quote:
1) Trunk start - Ground-Start or Loop-Start
This depends on how you configure the modem. See the manual.
2) Trunk signaling - DP (Dial Pulse) or DTMF (Dual Tone Multi Frequency)

Analog DID lines are receive-only. If you need to use the modem to send
as well then you'll need a second line for that. (The modem handles
Lastly, will I be able to receive and send via the fax line once it is
set up for DID? I have read elsewhere that users can only receive
(inbound) calls via the line that has been assigned DID numbers.
