Both of this client's offices are on a 100/50 fibre connection so don't think two extensions outside the main office will be a problem.

Should be ok, but a cir may not apply to your voice, so keep an eye on taxing uploads and downloads.

is that it's built around a TDM core and SIP is very much an addon.


Yep i definitely do agree there. They started off with their TDM product and just added SIP stuff to it. I think that is where most of the licensing issues comes from because you need a license just to interface a SIP trunk with a digital phone for instances.

I am really torn between Asterisk based systems and the Samsung (and NEC for that matter) kit we sell.
The Samsung stuff is such a breeze to install. Their propriety IP phones are pretty great, as well as their softphone. Security is also quite well catered for too with the OfficeServ range - even down to the licensing you have a degree of natural security. So although the kit is more expensive, we put less time in to it.
When it comes to do an Asterisk install there is more time put in to it so although hardware cost is down we put much more time on the job as there is a lot more to think about and actually do. At the end of the day the customer ends up paying around the same. But then I look at an Asterisk system (FreePBX in particular) and there is just so much flexibility in it in terms of hardware and software features that the Samsung just doesn't have.

I think at the end of the day it really is 100% up to the customer what they want...

I'm not really sure what my point was there to be honest... Just started typing.

If you're on UFB you'll always be able to access the high priority CIR with the correct 802.1p tag. You just don't have any control on the downstream CIR, and you'll probably find most ISP's who have a VoIP offering will only be interested in tagging their own VoIP traffic.

It is.. And I think the one key difference is basically vendor lock in. Opt for a Samsung system and you've just committed yourself to their product. Opt for a SIP based solution and you can use pretty much any piece of hardware you like, the only difference will pretty much be the user experience across different phones.

I personally sell the IPECS phone systems which work extremely well and are good value for money, else Cisco gear is generally pretty good too.

I've never had to configure a Samsung system and possibly never will ;)

So would something like the Yeastar MyPBX SOHO work OK for this small business and with 2talk?
It sounds to me like the Samsung is probably overkill for them.

They are only a small business and will have a max of 5 voip phones/extensions at the main branch and 2 at the smaller branch.

I would be far more inclined to stick in a FreePBX server. Most of those pre-built PBX's are just glorified VoIP gateways and they either run Asterisk at the core with a rubbish GUI or they run a crappy SIP stack of their own.

I've deployed a couple of these and they work well. Also becoming a fan of 3CX too.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

What hardware do you run 3CX on?
Would something like an Intel NUC be good enough?

The Yeastar MyPBX SOHO are pretty good little boxes, based on the typical Blackfin DSP chip from Rowetel running Asterisk with a modified (not open source any more) GUI.

One benefit of a system like that is that there are no moving parts to worry about.

Our feedback has been all positive so far, they seem to do what they are made for.

Thanks for that.
And they work OK with 2talk?

where in the country are you, have a look at the Compass business page, not sure if they have changed the graphics of the phones yet, but the snom 7xx series on their cloudpbx server would work well.
