Please let me know your opinion on what to do with this setup…
In December I’m helping a friend put up a 12 person office.
support up to 20 ppl
assume 12 concurrent lines in use at all times (including faxes)
both office and home office (IP phones)
2 dedicated fax lines
internet connection required for surfing business sites
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.
full DS-1 (24 lines)
separate GigE switches for PC/server LAN & IP Phones (keep traffic separate)
- software on Compaq DL380 (dual 1.4ghz P3 w/ 1GB RAM)
Please advise on direction and equipment needed to give a good level of overhead for services.
Also please reccomend…
make/model T1 card
thanks for the help!!!
