      Thanks for the info ‘big’ John. Our company is also looking for our pabx (NEAX 7400) replacement. Even though that it is working fine currently, we have a problem of maintaining it. The company that put our system did not give us the service manual for us to configure the system (e.g. trunk hunting, changing of caller IDs, and some even basic tasks). The maintenance contract price is what drives us to evaluate a VOIP system. We also use Lingo and Sunrocket (before it closed) for our int’l calls. We also would want to connect our sister institutions in this country through VOIP.


      I will read the links you gave. I hope we can find the right solution.


      Thanks again!

      1.) "Great" help, I'm not sure..  Depending on the solution you choose, you should be to provide the ability to Trunk various lines and route calls accordingly, perhaps saving costs and enable you to provision an extension policy that can expand or contract depending upon your need.  You can also come up with an architecture wherein you will be able to provision staff or certain individuals from home (even abroad) to be part of your extension list.

      Then you can record, see who's online on the system, view reports of calls being made from your system.  You can also enable an app to create a calling card system wherein you allocate specific call credits to certain staff and individuals (pre-paid) so that you can "control" calls coming out through your system :)

      On second thought, maybe it would be of "Great" help to schools :)

      2.) Set-up your own PBX solution to replace your existing analog system.  An easier starting point maybe to try out Trixbox (or Asterisk) and plug in your required FX0 PCI card or perhaps utilize an FXS/FX0/PSTN switch and register it with your system as an extension :)  Here are a couple of nice urls to start with:
      This is old.. but still useful (at times :)) - http://dumbme.voipeye.com.au/trixbox/trixbox_without_tears.htm

      Is it feasible?  Well, that's something you'll need to determine..  but if your solution is going to mean "buying" IP phones just to use VoIP... that's a load of crap and someone is just trying to sell you some products, only purchase what you need :)

      3.)  Done properly, none.  Properly test your digital solution and come up with a study that provides the best solution for you.

      Hope that helps.

      hi, im just curious to know how Voice over IP can benefit schools like sacred heart and springdale . i think some of you are knowledgeable in that area so i would like to ask your thoughts about this.

      1.      Will VoIP be of a great help to schools right now such that the budget for it is easily justifiable and has results that are easily tangible/sensible to the common (non-techies) people?

      2.      I don't know if this is right, but how can a VoIP solution be a feasible replacement of the traditional PBX system?

      3.      What could be the problems that may arise from migrating from the analog PBX to the digital VoIP?

      Your answers will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
