You need a router in the branch. As small as an 857 or 877 can do. The difference is that the 857 doesn't support QoS, VLAN and other features, beside that will work fine. The following url will help you:


look not much further than here, I've used this to implement Auto-Qos:

u can deploy what is called callmanager expers which is a call control based in a cisco router

this CME will be resposible for all call control

like phon numbers assignment, routing calls to PSTN and from PSTN

in ur case if u gonna use it for one office

the only thing u may benifit from is useing ur internet connection with ur router and CME to provide VPN remote access

then by useing cisco ip communicatior which is a software ip phone

u can remotly login to ur office (VPN) and use ur office phone system

good luck

rate if useful
