I am looking at setting up a lab using Cisco Unified Comms manager 7.
So far, the i believe the best fit for what i need is the Cisco Unified Communications 500 Series (UC520-24U-4BRI-K9).
I will need to use several phones with this, have been looking at the 7960G-CH1. My questions are as follows:
1) is the licences included in the 7960G-CH1 compatable with UCM 7? If not, what licence do i need?
2) Do in need to use the multi-channel phone, or does UCM handle this, in which case, what would be a better option.
3) The 500 series comes with analogue connection ports (BRI or FXO), i assume that we can use a voip termination provider to do away with the analogue lines comming into the office. Is anyone aware of a good service provider for this kind of service. Thats to say, we buy a non-geographical number from someone and point it at an IP address for making calls from our voip system to a customers external analogue line
