    We have a Cisco VoIP phone system installed as part of our new build and, while it has some good features, it was very expensive and the administration of even the smallest change is best left to someone who knows what they are doing. I did a days course on it and, even after this I was none the wiser!!! It looked to me like you had about 3 or 4 steps just to change a user's extension and god help you if you do it in the wrong order! Don't even mention it to our Business Manager unless wearing full kevlar body armour

    We are currently now looking at this Premium Quality Hosted IP Business Telephony and VoIP Solutions All hosted externally, as long as the vlans are setup correctly and you have a decent internet line it should work well.

    exactly what we've done. also got a bunch of microsoft lifecam HD's for £25 each - bye bye skype
