VoIP solution


I would also like to implement VOIP on a particular network on pilot basis. The District Headquarter(AP) has 3 tel. lines(POTS) ; these lines should be extended via VoIP to the 3 remotes. The 3 remotes should be able to make calls within themselves and to the PSTN network through the 3 individual tel lines. Incoming calls to the 3 tel. lines should be automatically forwarded to the VOIP in the remote.

Can anyone provide me the best & cheapest solution based on my requirement? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Re: VoIP solution

the answer is 'it depends'

What kind of phones are you looking at? regular analog phones?

You could get a 3700(or similar) with the appropriate voice cards at each location - this would work. You could get IPphones and run ITS on the remote sites.

It all depends what you want to accomplish.

Re: VoIP solution

I was looking for ATA186 like devices where you plug in the regular analog phones. What would I need in the "HUB" side that transparently switchs calls from the PSTN to the VoIP circuit and vice-versa. The "HUB" side has 3 POTS. It is for rural applications hence want the cost to be bare minimum.
