I have a friend who has a business in Wellington CBD. Currently his landline and Internet is with Spark. His landlines appear to be a simple PBX though I am not sure and Internet is xDSL.

 

He is looking at DDI (extensions) and VoIP seems to be the way to go. He could move ISP's since I can't see anywhere on the Spark site where they offer VoIP, only some sort of Centrex service over ISDN. (correct me my research is wrong here)

 

Anybody have any familiarity with Vodafone VoIP service in the Wellington CBD or perhaps should I just get fibre to the office and go with a VoIP provider?

 

Thanks

Look for "IP Telephony", I think that's what you're after.

How many extensions do you require? Why not ask a specialist to provide a solution as opposed to a 'one size fits all from a normal ISP?

it is my understanding the Concetrix service supports DDI's.

 

 

 

That's all i can comment on though, i'm not trained in Fixedline.

Pretty sure hio is on the money, Centrix should be quite capable of doing what your friend wants - with that said, I'm also pretty sure that if it's a new implementation, instead of something already in place, going with a SIP service is a no brainer.

 

Any reason he can't get a naked connection and have all his VoIP running through 2talk or another provider?




Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

Centrex is essentially just DDI's with the extra features added to it. Every phone has a proper phone number, ie DDI, and then has an extension number too.

 

This day in age though you would be utterly mad to get Centrex as it is super expensive and lacks many many features. They do however now have IP Centrex which I think is Mitel based - only guessing though.

 

If it was me I would look to a PBX vendor who can also manage your broadband and SIP services too. 2talk is great, but would only use it as a PBX for maybe 3-4 extensions max. Anything further and moves/adds/changes just become an absolute nightmare to manage without a provisioning platform for the devices.
