We have a requirement for Cisco voice to be implemented at our satellite teleport. This is basically to connect our teleport location HO to Barge (sea platform - rig) via the satellite. At the rig we would require data, voice, video & fax services. The satellite WAN BW is 256kbps. The Barge users will use four telephones, one fax & will do videoconferencing. They will communicate with teleport HO & use the PSTN for internationatal dialling using the HO voice gateway.There is no Cisco call manager in place. There is PBX (Brand-NEC, Model- NECX 2400) system at the HO.

Appreciate if somebody can recommend as to what would be the best way to provide voice, fax & video connectivity to the users in the barge.Thanks.

Buy Unified Communications Manager, SageCom XMediusFAX, and a Cisco ISR G2 router for the head office to provide PSTN calling and faxing support. Buy a second ISR G2 with Unified Communications license, the appropriate CME license count, and a ISM running CUE for voicemail. Configure UCM and CME to communicate using a SIP trunk and configure QoS on the satellite to prioritize the voice and signaling traffic. You will not get video calling across a link that small.
