What are the capabilities of the UC500 Series to support basic calls between itself and a 3rd party PABX via IP (H.323).
We have a corporate Telephone network, with multiple sites and offices around the world. Everything is linked together via satellite, consequently we have an internal extension numbering system and a number of common standards to conform to.
I have a number of warehouses and workshops that require internet and phone connectivity. These are generally within microwave link range of a Regional Office with direct VSAT access to the international corporate network, providing access to the corporate phone system and intranet systems, web applications etc.
Local ISP and phone providers are unreliable, an independant system is desired.
The Sub Offices are equipt with BP250 PABX which can provide basic call support to 3rd party PBXs via H.323.
The UC500 Series is attractive because in one box with a microwave link I can provide staff with internet connectivity to the corporate network without VPN etc. It will also provide a stand alone phone system, with PSTN connectivity in the event of link failure.
What I really need it to do (and I haven't been able to find any docs to confirm) is link to the PBX in the regional office, via microwave link, ie, the 10/100 WAN uplink Port, and extend the corporate phone network.
I can see how it can be done via the PSTN interfaces, but this doesn't help me (why is a long story).
Thanks in Advance
