HI all.? I am a very basic system user who's company is trying to compare the benefits of using a virtual PABX verses a standard in-house PABX.? We currently run a head office which has approx 25 phone users and are setting up microsoft one office in 3 of our other locations.?

We also have 3 other locations which are too small to run "one office" at present.? We are moving into a building which has an existing 3 year old PABX system which has just had a software upgrade.? We need some advise on whether we should go virtual with our PABX or not.? The cost comparision over a 3 year period is the same.? The provider we are looking at for the virtual option is still running tests on intergration with the "one office" so thinks it will be year before it is ready to roll out.? What is the general opinions of you all.?

Are we too big for a "virtual" and should stick to an in-house system, or are they old hat?? What will technology be like in 3 years?? Any suggestions would be welcome.? Thanks? Tracey

{MOD : SP : Moved to the "VOIP" forum as a best option, NZ Communications is a new (coming soon) cellphone network.}

Sounds like your requires would be larger then Virtual PABX requirements
Would you be interested in your VOIP Appliance located at HO and having remote extensions over your one office and VPN links?
