BT Versatility System????
Just signed up to the forum to hopefully get some feedback on the BT Versatility PBX system.
The reason why I'm asking is that a friend of the family has ask for some assistance on setting up an Intercom/Telephony system in the pub/hotel he has recently bought. I have some networking experience, system configuration experience as well as being a newly qualified Cabling Install (Ethernet and Data primarily).
His idea of an intercom system seems pretty rudimentary and doesnít allow for the fact that the telephone install currently is a real mess. The BT system seems to check all the boxes for his requirements but I need to find out some basics before I suggest it and get myself into trouble.
There are two analogue lines coming into the building, I assume that I'm wiring both into the PBX from the Master Telephone LJU's, does this involve IDC's or RJ11 sockets? With this in mind is there a 'soft switch' function within the system that allows me to route calls from one analogue line to specific handsets? Or is the Auto Attend feature best for this?
The pub currently has a Wireless ADSL router, can this still be installed on an existing extension and whatís the best suggestion for filters? At the Master LJU or on each subsequent LJU? if the later, does the PBX require filtering at source?
Once installed how intuitive is the programming?
Finally, based on the above questions am I biting off more than I can chew? Iím willing to give it a go but obviously he is stumping up the cash for which ever system is installed. Also any other pointers are greatly received
Apologies for the long winded post in advance
