UC520 The Right Choice?

Hi,

I am opening a mid sized retail shop.

I have (2) 7970, (4) 7940, and (1) 7925.

I need 1 auto antendant menu (when call comes in via fxo line), 1 FXO Line for in/out bound calling, and 1 voice mailbox that sits on an extension.

Would it be possible to setup the uc520 just for handling phones, and use a cisco smb router for DHCP, WLAN, Firewall, etc?

Can my configuration all be done with the web gui, and CCA for the uc520?

I was looking at thee UC320W, however you cannot use any 7900 series phones, and I do not like how it handles user/phone assigment.

Thanks!

Hello,

Just to add that you should consider buying UC540 or UC560 instead of UC520 because 520 is EOS.

Best regards,

Thank You.

I can get access to a UC520 easier then the 540 or 560.

If I did decide to use the WLAN, and Firewire on the UC520, is there a web gui for that, or do I have to use cli?

The UC500 GUI is supposed to do everything.

Again, the best choice is to give the job to a professional, and not have to worry about.

Re: UC520 The Right Choice?

Please refer to document which compare it's specification between UC540 and UC560.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/voicesw/ps6788/vcallcon/ps7293/UC540_560_2pgr.pdf

With latest softwarepack upgrade,

UC540 has capability for 8-32 users. (32 users are maximum)

UC560 has capability for 16-138 users (138 users are maximum)

If you are expecting growth up to 50 users, you should consider UC560.

I have UC560 with 80 users and UC540 with 8 users for multi site.

With recent 8.6.1 softwarepack update, system is running without any problem so far.

Hello ,

Does it means UC540/UC560 are better to deploy than CME for 50 users , who might be expanded in future ?

Re: UC520 The Right Choice?

Hello Davy,

Above 40 users only UC560, the uc is CME. I did not understand your question clearly.

Best regards,

Thanks.

Due to the time/budget restrictions, I think for the first few months I am going to stick with the basic uc320w, then move up to the UC540/560 later on.
