Is there any reason why this cannot be made compatible. I have been testing with the SPA9000 and the SPA3102. The 3102 almost works - I can see Invite being passed, Trying and Moved Temporarily coming back but it keeps on looping on this.
I do feel that this could be an important feature in the SPA series and this would be a major selling point to the SME market. A small company using SBS 2008 and SPA series equipment could have an excellent VOIP/PABX/UM system for probably around the £1000 mark.
I'm not 100% sure I understand the kind of integration you are looking for, could you please elaborate. Currently our SPA9X2 and SPA500 phones interoperate with Microsoft Active Directory (or any other LDAP enabled DB) via LDAP queries for corporate directory applications. There is no integration for Unified Messaging.
Customer with say 5-10 users. Customer has Microsft SBS 2008 (Windows Server 2008 and Exchange 2007).
Customer also has SPA 9000 and SPA3102.
SPA 9000 is his PBX and talks out to a VOIP provider (Sipgate etc)
SPA 3102 acts as VOIP gateway to POTS
Customer would like to have the following:
If user is out of office then SPA device would pass unanswered call to Exchange UM and let caller leave voice message which then would be attached to an email in his mailbox.
This would then be pushed to his mobile phone using Exchange push mail.
In the same way during out of office hours the any incoming calls would also be diverted to an Exchange shared mailbox and messages would be left there and could be viewed during the next working period by anyone who has access to that shared box as an email with a audio attachment.
At present the only 2 VOIP gateways that are supported by Microsoft are produced by Audiocodes and Dialogic and to buy them you would not see any change out of $2000
As I said previously this could be done for a total cost of SBS 2008, SPA's (including SPA phones) for less than the cost of a Dialogics or Audiocodes gateway.
The SPA 3102 almost works - I think it only needs a minor change to the firmware
