Hey all, hope you had a Merry Christmas.
Sorry if this is in the wrong group. I posted here because the quoted system mentioned below is a Cisco.
Our company, a small retailer with 2 branches 1000 miles apart, is considering migration to a hybrid or IP phone system, with the end of connecting these locations via fiber link. We've had a system quoted and found that labor is (shock shock) about 20% of the price. Aaggh. Now although I am a computer guy, I don't know much about IP phones in particular and what peculiarities can be expected from the difficulty level.
So, I'm looking for opinions: Can a normal computer tech read a book and install a small, simple IP phone system? Or is this equivalent to a 3-year-old entering the Chess Olympiad?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
