Your PBX

What's the coolest thing about it? Have they really improved anything yet?
If you like it, tell me the brand and the number of people on it, please.

I'd love to hear about this because I've got to replace an aging PBX in a
school. 250 analog lines, 50 digital lines.

Currently they're using a Samsung DCS 400si. A very unique dinosaur.

We've got a Cisco Call Manager set that we're upgrading shortly. Since it's voip, we can use our existing cisco switch infrastructure. We've got 400 or so devices. There are a limited amount of analog devices pulled into the system through a few routers with a few VICs installed in them. I haven't really had any issues with the system. The issue is, it's expensive. The MCS(multimedia convergence server) boxes list at $7000 a pop I believe, and you're going to pay a premium for phones and POE switches with cisco. I'm guessing you can do a bunch of SIP stuff with it(as opposed to MGCP), but doing that would invalidate almost any reason you would go with the cisco gear in the first place.

Re: Your PBX

But do you like it? And does it do anything special or just make and
receive calls? 🙂

I'd do this in a heartbeat if I had the time. Unfortunately, I do not.

Re: Your PBX

Our Nortel system is slick, we have Callpilot Desktop Messaging which allows
voice mail messages to integrate into GroupWise. Nortel finally got around
to fixing their GW client integration and it works well with GW 8

Re: Your PBX

Just in time! 🙂

Isn't Nortel under now? Nortel AND Groupwise seems like a fun combination!

Re: Your PBX

Nortel is alive and well, Avaya bought them for almost nothing and the
biggest change has been the increase in support contracts (So far).

Yea, Nortel scared the crap out my group, we upgraded out entire center core
and implemented 10 Gb to edge switches and then a few months later they
annouced bankruptchy...

But as we discussed when we found out about Nortel there are other venders,
If GroupWise goes away, we may just thow the email into a cloud and run away
before it falls back to earth.... Problem is, my company can't afford the
cloud, that's why they love me, I keep email going, they pay me as little as
possible and the users have a face they can call up complain when GWIA
crashes the server or the Soap threads get maxed out on the post office.

Re: Your PBX

"they pay me as little as possible "

But you really help their bottom line! What a team player!

That old thing? I've been quite happy with Groupwise over the years, as
long as you don't use it for Internet email, IMAP, or mobile phones it
really just keeps on going!

Not a problem. It is the parent company of asterisk. Just for the record.
