    I've never used one myself. Not a big Nortel fan. A bit of googling turned up this though.

    i've seen that,

    hopefully i can setup a trixbox alongside as the cost of handsets all in one go will be prohibitive to the project.

    @john uses voip with his i think,

    From when i spoke with somebody in brighton who had done the trixbox thing and said it worked fine.

    If you are looking at sip handsets i can highly recommend yealink ones.

    might have a look at them,

    do they have integrated ethernet switch ?

    going to setup trix tomorow/monday got 2 cisco handsets coming and a freebee sip trunk over tinternet for testing.

    hopefully trix will talk to BCM then i can get the real SLA'd sip trunks to the trixbox and have that communicate with the BCM and slowly move people over.

    integrated switches in the phones would be a big selling point and would avoid overpriced data point installation when we want to add a phone somewhere which already has a pc.

    No problem - if i remember correctly what happened was the trixbox machine received the sip trunks then had routes setup for any extension on the nortel. Personally i found trixbox a touch strange to use and went with freepbx. The yealink t28p and t20p both have intergrated switches which also support vlan tagging for data etc.

    They are also very customizable and can be configured via pxe boot which is nice as it means they can be setup from the server and just plugged in.

    I upgraded my box to the 450 as the 400 was widely regarded as pants for VOIP and very buggy even with the last firmware Nortel made for it (Both BT and a number of resellers I found said the same thing). It was also a decision to move to the 450 as our upgrade as the 400 is all finished and discountinued by Avaya now so you cannot get new keys, hardware etc... so for us having a CCU that is not supported is not an option.

    I don't use SIP Trunks for calling though I just use IP Handsets and have the genuine Avaya ones for the 450 they are good value for the features so cannot complain and it seems to be working fine for me which is great as our second campus is completely IP handsets.

    i'm thinking more bridge a trixbox/asterixnow/freepbx (something asterix based) to a BCM and slowly migrate users so i don't have to buy 200 handsets all at once and re-train 500 users monday morning.

    BCM400 for voip isn't looking great looks like you need a license we don't have and @john 's comments aren't promising. I'm certainly not upgrading to another BCM, the idea is the (pick 2 not 3 ) cheapest, easiest, least hassle migration path.

    To bridge ISDN to Asterisk (trixbox or whatever) you'll need an interface card. The dual port Sangoma A102's I usually use cost ~£500 each.

    You'll also need an E1 crossover cable.
