Hi guys, couple of questions if you don't mind.
Am currently with Vonage, using a DECT phone which is plugged into the switch via a converter. Currently, LinuxMCE does no more than provide tinterweb, and I would very much like to change that.
Is it as simple as changing from Vonage to Sipgate, and re-running the setup wizard in order to integrate it all into the system? Can I continue using my DECT phones to take advantage of all the features on offer, or do I have to upgrade to proper IP phones?
Look at the Siemens Gigaset IP range. These are DECT handsets that talk to a basestation (like all DECT phones do). But the IP models have a POTS RJ11 and an RJ45 for connection to your VOIP Switch ie your Core. On the SIP side all the Gigaset handsets can make or receive calls consurrently (they all appear as extensions to the Asterisk server) and you can also switch back to analog quickly at any time to make a call over POTS.
Very nice products all around actually.
all the best
