CME Question

Hello Experts

I am new to IP Telephony, can you experts advice on the scenario

Today we got Nortel PBX, management agreed for IP Telephony POC

To start for 40 users, is Cisco Callmanager Express Ideal on Router 2850

Can the endpoints be Apple Iphone as we got 100% iphone users.

Iphone supports SIP / SCCP

My goal is to get Iphone working as extension i.e

  • allow call dial / call receive
  • Integartion with Nortel
  • Address book on Iphone
  • Call forward

Appreicate your input.

Warm regards

Re: CME Question

CME dos not support the full Cisco architecture for IPhone integration, that is quite complex and expensive, requiring a lot of additional components to Cisco CM.

However, any competent Cisco Voice engineener will be able to integrate the iPhones for basic calls with CME, and VPN to the office LAN, using free or cheap iPhone apps.

A 2811 router is enough to do all you want to do. Please note, the most important thing is that you locate a reliable Cisco partner or consultant. If you attempt to do this yourself that will cause endless frustration and poor results.
