Re: Cisco VS 3com in voice solution

Doesn't that really depend on what you need your phone system to do for you?

What are your requirements?

Re: Cisco VS 3com in voice solution

I am a decision maker for a company and we need to implement IP Telephony system.

Actually, our local venders' proposed to me two systems: one from Cisco and other is 3com.

My opinion is to go with Cisco technology but 3com is cheaper than Cisco.

How I can convince my owner to purchasing Cisco not 3com?

Re: Cisco VS 3com in voice solution

Tell us more about your network, goals, and requirements. How many phones? How many sites? How many voice mail boxes will you need? Do you have a separate voice mail system already that you'd like to keep?

What sort of connections to your voice provider do you require, e.g. PRI, analog trunks, etc.? Do you need to connect to PBXs from other vendors?

What Cisco solution was suggested, CallManager or CallManager Express?

We need more information in order to make an informed recommendation.
