Is their a device/adapter to connect existing digital phones to callmanager? Customer is interested in Cisco UC but does not want to pay for all new phones. Hoping to remove PBX and connect phones to IPadapter, then up to callmanager (just like an analog phone connected to ATA then to CCM, just digital phones).

Hi Daniel,

Currently there is no adapter (like ATA) to connect digital phones to CCM :( Have you thought of perhaps connecting the PBX and CCM via PRI Gateway? This is what we did between Nortel and CCM to allow phones to reside on either system with full access to each other via 4-digit dialling and shared resources to reach the PSTN. We still have a combination of both Nortel and Cisco phones.

Just a thought.

Hope this helps!
