Hi There!

I am trying to investigate ip telephones in my office. I am beginner in this area.

We have a Samsung OfficeServ 7030 with an expansion card to take us to 16 (I think) digital extensions.

I think I'll need a POE Switch and then suitable phones. Does anyone know if any brand of phone works? I want something with a reasonable screen so I can have a list of previously called numbers or present number calling without spending the earth.

Do I just replace our existing managed 24 port gigabit 3com switch with a equivilent POE one, or my phones and other devices all go on the same switch?

Best bet would be to ask the vendor who supplied the system. With most of these brand name systems you can only use their own branded IP phones, and would no doubt need the vendor to configure the system for IP phones if you're only using hybrid digital phones now.

As for using a single switch it very much depends on how the system is configured. Best practice is certainly to have voice and data on individual VLAN's to isolate the traffic.

Hi, to get IP phones working off the OS7000 series you will need MGI licences, and advisably Samsung IP phones, I recommend you contact your Samsung vendor.
