I have a nortel 6X16,NT 5B01, and would like to know if as long as I use an analogue to digital converter, would I be able to still use the nortel 6x16 for VOIP? thank you

Perhaps you could provide more details because what your asking does not make sense.

The 6X16 is a Digital system

If you are talking about sets:
It does not use VoIP phones
There is no such thing as an Analog to Digital phone converter for Norstar systems
There is however an ATA -Analog Terminal Adapter (Digital to Analog Converter) but it has nothing to do with VoIP.
VoIP phones utilize the onsite Network infrastructure such as the Switch like all the other PC's and Printers

If you are talking about trunks:
There is no such thing as an Analog to Digital trunk converter for Norstar systems
It is possible that it might be using "SIP" Trunks via a VoIP Gateway which converts the SIP protocol to Analog, commonly used by Cable companies that provide telephone lines.


"would I be able to still use"
My first answer would be if it's working now then of course it will still work.
Did you mean "would or can" you be able to use the 6X16?

Curlycord explained it very well for you - but your question is lacking for info.

IF you are meaning - as it is happening these days - that a company like Spectrum wants to bring in new phone service, they
will hand off the phone lines as analog and your Norstar will continue to work.

Most local providers will give you an analog handoff. If you are going with a VOIP only service provider you would be responsible for doing the Sip to analog conversion. If you are doing the conversion yourself then you need to get a test trunk and a conversion box and make sure that everything is A-OK before doing a full port of the numbers.

Yes i should rephrase myself, I would like to eventually switch over to voip and was told that my nortel 6x16 would work with it, could someone give me some idea of how I go about switching over to VOIP, and yes it would be on the trunk side, Line 1 Line 2 etc. which now the phone co provides. thankyou

First see if the provider you are looking at either provides or recommends an fxo or ata device.

Second see if they will provide you with a test trunk so you can see if there are any potential issues with with either your network or inter interoperability between your phone system and the fxo device.

Before all of that you need to be sure that your network connection is both fast enough and stable enough for voice traffic. If you have network hiccups either internal or external that will be devastating for voice traffic.
