In Nottinghamshire the LA is suggesting new schools install a Cisco Callmanager Express around £10k for 12 phones+server, and then one day the LA will buy Callmanager, and link them all together.
They pay someone from BTInet to set all the command line bits up, then give you training on using the web GUI where you can add phones, extensions, directory entries, hunt groups, voicemail boxes.
In theory it supports SIP, never got it working.
It's something we're looking into at our school. Although saying that we're keeping it local. I think the biggest fear (from a schools point of view prehaps?) is that telephone systems have almost always been outsourced. I know the biggest fear with our school about Asterisk is that it'll be mostly in-house support (while they dont have a problem with that, it's the fact that if I or the other technician leave... they would be stuffed).
I think it is a good idea, the majority of schools over here are connected to the same network, so it would make sense to move to VOIP.

Spotted a big bright yellow thing in the sky on the weekend. It hurt to look at it.
It's gone now though.

An interesting rumour. I certainly wouldn't put it passed them SYNACK
Ah but have you heard the new rumors floating about, that Steve is looking to classify all music as uncool in 2010 banning it from iPods completly and replacing it with a selection of Apple branded 'motivational material' the effects are said to be so strong that you will 'leak' said material out to others around you uncontrollably. The material is also said to be that potent that earphones and even the new flake earphones will be unable to channel it sufficiently. Helpfully this new device will be implanted in the brain stem negating the need for headphones. This will also allow the device to leach un-needed energy from its hosts brain in order to provide the customer with uninterrupted access to Apples extensive library of 'persuasive content'.
Flamebait anyone??? I hear it's in season
and its still raining
Rain rain rain.
Hope everything goes well for you.
It's good for you. Only a few years ago I couldn't wait to be back after the summer, it was the only place I really, *really* felt at home. (Still do, sometimes.)
Rained yesterday, too.
yeah it's a series. The whole lot is available from Dawkins website.
When was this on? Is it a series?
Just spotted it's on again tonight. I'll try and catch it on '4OD'.
