    Phones / VOIP

    What systems are people using for their phone systems ?? I'm looking for different prices - needs to be deployed in a call center type environment, presently we use talkswitch but we've outgrown it.



    Thanks everyone.

    Lync is the way forward. Moving all of our systems on to it now.

    Call routing groups, conferencing, mobile access, exchange voicemail, survivable branch appliances - winning.

    Zultys with Aastra phones and the odd polycom phone. Decent kit, we've had it in 5 or 6 years. Salesforce integration's our next step. Good call centre options for sure.

    I'm in the throws of FreePBX an Asterisk based system @Geoff recommended it. We use Yealink T28P's all which are configured via Auto-provisioning (dead simple!). Going to be using SIP aswell over a Leased Line which we share with internet traffic. using Smoothwall's SIP Proxy probably.

    Avaya IP Office 500 with a mixture of 9608 & 9641 IP Phones, Very good system with plenty of features and very easy to manage. It’s been in and working just over a month and all is well so far, apart from the odd phone freezing.

I am currently using services from therealpbx.com and it is working fine.
    I'd rather not. My inhouse system comes in at 1/10th of the cost with much more flexibility than I could attain by using a hosted system. But I bet I'm preaching to the wrong crowd here about inhouse vs hosted solutions.

    The FreeFBX solution is based on the Mysql version of asterisk and in terms of customization is just as flexible IMHO worth a play if you want.

    There is also Trixbox CE

    Indeed, let me know if you have any issues. I know more about Asterisk based VOIP systems than I care to admit.

    I found Trixbox too clunky and not very logical but could just be me! I'm going live with our FreePBX system next week
