VoIP solution using pots
Posted on 2008-10-06
My company (small, 10 employs) is wanting to switch from our current really old PBX.
We'd like some sort of bridge from the POTS that run from the phone company to a voip system. We currently have 2 lines that make use of the same phone number. I'm not phone guru, so not how this is configured.
A couple of our goals are:
Spend less than $2000 for hardware (10 phones).
Support for caller id, call waiting, hold music, automated attendant, and other usual features.
Multi-line pots support. (2-3 lines).
Easy / minimal maintenance. We have a lot of tech-savvy people (niche software company), but no dedicated systems admin to spend time with it.
Ability to place a phone at another physical location via VPN or the like. Perhaps softphones or use of the VoIP software on many smart cell phones.
What would be a few good systems to consider?
