1. Configure your Positron PBX

In this step, you'll configure your PBX to connect to your Telnyx account.

  1. Log into your Positron PBX portal.

  2. Go to PBX > Trunks/Lines > Trunks/Lines.

  3. Click Add.

  4. Provide the following:

    1. Name: Give it a name that makes sense to you. We called ours Telnyx.

    2. IP Address/Domain: sip.telnyx.com

    3. Username: Your Telnyx SIP account username (The 100000 is just a dummy value)

    4. Password: Your Telnyx SIP account password

    5. Port: 5060

  5. Click Save.

  6. Click Edit on the trunk you just created. You'll see you now have additional settings you can configure:

    1. From User: remove the username from this field

    2. P-Asserted-Identity: Select Custom and in the text field beneath this, enter your DID you provisioned as part of your pre-requisite activities.

  7. Click Save.

  8. Click Apply. You should now be able to apply the trunk in the VoIP section of the status screen.

2. Configure outbound rules

In this step, you will configure rules that will manage your outgoing calls. These rules will control things such as long distance calling, call patterns (i.e.: 10 digit dialing), and the line groups that various types of outgoing calls are using.

  1. From the Positron PBX portal, go to PBX > Trunks/Lines > Outgoing Line Groups.

  2. Create a new group.

  3. Find your trunk in the dropdown. (This will be the name of the trunk you just created in step 1)

  4. Once this is created, go to PBX > Call Handling > Outgoing Call Rules.

  5. From here, you can choose the ruleset your extensions will be using.

Note: It's a good idea to create a few rules to test patterns you plan to use, to ensure that the outgoing line group you created is using them correctly and as expected.

3. Configure inbound rules

In this step, you will configure rules that will manage incoming calls, such as where incoming callers are routed first.

  1. From the Positron PBX portal, go to PBX > Trunks/Lines > Incoming Call Rules.

  2. Create a new group.

  3. Link the new group to your trunk using the checkboxes.

  4. Once you have finished creating the group, click Edit.

  5. Find the DID field and enter the DID you provisioned as part of your pre-requisite activities.

  6. Choose the Extension (IVR, ring group, or simple extension). This is the destination where incoming calls should be routed.

Note: If you have another SIP trunk through another provider, make sure you go to PBX > PBX Settings > SIP in your Positron PBX portal and set your SIP Registration Timer to a minimum of 600.

That's it! Your Positron PBX will now work with Telnyx to allow you to make/receive outbound and inbound calls.
