3Com NBX interoperability


Is there anyway to integrate the Call Manager with 3com NBX? We have a solution that might need a Call Manger to be able to forward and recieve calls from another 3com NBX in the same site.

How could we do that? anyone has a similar installtion

Re: 3Com NBX interoperability

I have not used the 3com but I do know that it is sip based adn call manager is not. if the 3com can support an h.323 trunk you should be able to tie the two together. if it can not do h.323 you may have to go the the least common demonator being a isdn line. one last thought would be the callmanager 4.0 supports sip trunks and may work with the 3com.

hope this help

Re: 3Com NBX interoperability

The 3Com NBX 100 and Superstack 3 doesn't support SIP today. It is their intention to implement it in the future. Today, your options to connect the two are via analog or digital (T1 or PRI). 3Com has a 4-port fxo and fxs board for the NBX, and they also have a 16 port high density fxs board from Citel available. The route you choose may depend on how many simultaneous calls you need to support. If 3Com would support Analog E&M, that would have been the best solution.

If you want to do this via software, you can open up H.323 on the NBX as well. The H.323 licensing is based on ports, and is $800 list per port for 3Com.
