[quote=“vastdavidson”]I’m just learning about this system too. So here is what I have been suggested.
Get 3 lines from the Phone company. Just basic lines…for inbound
Get a service from a VOIP. Perferably 2 for redundency.
All outbound calls go over the VOIP connection…you can also get a local number with the VOIP company. so you set the system up…
Get two machines and set them up. Both have 1 card in them. One is your live system and one is the backup. You can get basic pentium machines…keep them the same model.
For the Pots lines…if call comes in to line 1 and busy go to 2. if busy go to 3 if busy go to VOIP Extension…
the VOIP will be about 45 a month for unlimited calls. and long distance.
anyways my 2cents worth[/quote]
I appreciate the info… let me know your opinion on this…
I was looking at getting a huge i-net pipe and going all VOIP at first but… after reading a lot on the forums about the service providers for VOIP. I’m concerned about frequent outages and less then high quality voice transmission. These seem to be pretty constant.
The advice you have gotten was based on what info and experiences?
Did they setup what you are talking about above? Please let me know what setup is like (# of phones, # sim users, etc), equipment (T1 card, server, * version, make/model of phones, etc) and what provider used?
I’m currently looking at getting a DS-1 with 24 lines and a separate i-net pipe for surfing. The LAN will have spearate GigE switches for PCs & IP phones.
thanks for the help!!!
