Spreading the outbound call load across two trunks

If I have two trunks in one domain - one that can handle five simultaneous calls (let's call it TrunkA) and the other which can handle one (TrunkB), is it possible for me to setup the dial plan to prioritize TrunkA such that the first five outbound calls travel through it and the sixth goes out on Trunk B?

 

Here's a simplification of the dial plan that I created:

 

Pref Trunk Pattern Replacement

100 TrunkA xxxxxxxxxx 1xxxxxxxxxx

200 TrunkB xxxxxxxxxx 1xxxxxxxxxx

 

I have CO lines setup for TrunkA - co1 co2 co3 co4 co5. For TrunkB, I have co6.

 

If co1-5 are in use, pbxnsip 3.1.2.3120 doesn't use co6 for the sixth outbound call (assuming I'm dialing 10 digits).

 

Is there a way to do that? Seems like it's trying to get the sixth line on TrunkA.

In Trunk A, set the Failover Behavior to "On all error codes"

 

I believe that will work with your current Dial Plan.

Bill,

 

Thank you so much for your reply. I'll set that up. Might be a while until my lines fill up again but this sounds like the logical solution.

 

Thanks again,

Nate
