Can I use D-Link Response Point HW w/ 3CX?

    I just installed a Microsoft Response Point D-Link VoiceCenter system (20 DPH-128MS phones, 2 DVG-3104MS gateways for 6 PSTN lines and the DVX-2000MS base unit). Only now did I discover that Microsoft is probably not going to provide any further development on the RP Response Point platform.

    Does anyone know if I can use the D-Link hardware with 3CX (that is, the phones and gateways)? I can install 3CX on a standalone Windows box and not use the D-Link base unit in that case. The phones seem to be highly configurable.

    Unfortunately, the Response Point platform is missing some key features important to most business PBX systems. 3CX seems to have these features covered.

    Thanks for any advice!

    Jeff,

    You really have to speak to D-Link to find out of they provide firmware to change their hardware to open sip rather than RP.

    For instance, Aastra RP products can be flashed to regular units via files provided by Aastra.

    I am willing to bet D-Link does not support this though.

    And to be honest, if changing to 3CX, it would be best to purchase certified and supported hardware.

    Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I've heard rumors that D-Link may stop selling their VoiceCenter RP hardware, so maybe then they'll provide the firmware for opening up the phones as SIP compliant. One can only hope. I just invested in a D-Link VoiceCenter system with 20 phones. Easy to set up and works great for what it does, but missing important features that I was hoping would be added with time, until I discovered that RP is probably dead, according to Microsoft blogs.
