We now use an Alcatel PBX, 15 years old, with Lucent 8410d digital phones. We have 200 users at one site, and 100 users at three remote sites, with data T-1s connecting them. Is VoIP absolutely the best way to go, or should I look at mid-range PBX solutions. If VoIP, is the Cisco brand the worth the extra money? Thanks. jc
That is correct. The IP Phone acts as a two-port switch; It trunks up to the switch with a Voice and Native (Data) VLAN and provides an access port on the native VLAN to the PC.
