ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the annual VoiceCon IP-PBX RFP workshop held last month in Orlando, FL, demonstrated that no IP telephony system is perfect, but some are less imperfect than others. Each of the nine system suppliers submitted a single system design, centrally located or distributed primary common controllers, with the sole exception of EADS, who proposed one or more dedicated systems for each location. Redundant common control hardware/ software components and local survivability at distributed sites were vitally important RFP requirements, and there was a varying degree of compliance. Each of the proposed systems mostly or fully complied with the detailed requirements for redundant common control elements, processing, generic software, customer database, service circuits, power, using fully duplicated, shared, or distributed designs, with the sole exception of the EADS solution. Desirable system design requirements included highly redundant common control, processors, memory, power supply, Ethernet uplinks, services circuit interfaces, and fully survivable local communication capabilities at all distributed locations in case of LAN/WAN failure.
