I don't have a link right off hand. What you move on to at this point is
a channel bank and at least a T100P card.  It doesn't take much growing
at that point for you to be in need of a T1 incoming. Having already
moved to at least a T100P card puts you down the road to preserving your
investment. Especially since the 6 FXO interfaces otherwise would have
cost you $600 anyways, and then you have to buy FXS ports or VoIP

As was mentioned before, this level of pbx is relatively more expensive
because you are just almost to the break even point for going all
digital. So while the step up from say a 2 port pbx is pretty fair, the
step up from the T100P to more lines ends up being just a trivial
configuration change.
