Cisco VoIP PBX

Smaller organizations, offices in remote locations, and locations were internet service is intermittent or costly would benefit from using Cisco VoIP PBX. The ability to combine the internet and phone service results in improved and consistent connectivity. And the overall expense to outfit a small to medium size office is extremely cost-effective.

Sangoma Asterisk

Digium Asterisk is well suited for a city government as a communications solution for internal and external use. Other options like PBX are more expensive and hard to escalate. VoIP makes it easier to use the communications infrastructure instead that already exists rather than having to wire every phone when the solution is a digital or analog phone. In my city, government offices are not in the same place, which makes it harder to communicate everything together.

Cons

Cisco VoIP PBX

  • There are no outstanding issues with this system to-date.
  • Aesthetically speaking, the actual devise could use a sleeker and less "boxy" look.

Sangoma Asterisk

  • Documentation is scarce, so you have to learn by trial and error.
  • Not cloud-based, and there's no mobile app.
  • The ability to email voicemail messages would be great.

Cisco VoIP PBX 8.0

Cisco offers online instruction on the use of the VoIP but it has to be sought out. Likely, the do offer additional support but this is managed by our IT department so it is difficult to determine just how accessible Cisco has been regarding the implementation and ongoing support for this product.

I have asked in the not so recent past about having my phone updated with my saved Digium "favorites" list but it doesn't seem that this is possible

Alternatives Considered

Cisco VoIP PBX

All of the Cisco VoIP products have been intuitive, appropriate for the size of the organization, effective, and easily accessible.

Sangoma Asterisk

[Based on] my experience, we initially had to deal with Avaya PBXs, the same applies to client instrumentation (telephones, etc.). Surely we are talking about a product much more "business-like", but the management and implementation has a high cost and is not as simple as it can be (or better) with Asterisk.
