    Hi I am currently trying to replace my phone system but would hope not to have to replace all of my hardware of Cisco 7940 handsets.
    What kind of hardware would I need to purchase in order to handle the following?

    23 x Local Cisco 7940
    4 x Analogue Phones (1 x fax & 3 x dect phones)
    3 x Non-Local Cisco 7940 (1 in Scotland, 1 In Nottingham & 1 in Spain)
    It needs to be able to handle up to 16 concurrent calls.

    Our current system uses 2 broadband lines (I believe are BT lines) which only get about 4.2 meg actual speed on a good day (Up to 20 meg lines). The system isn't hosted locally so if there are any problems with the host we lose our whole system for up to 2 hours some times hence why I'm looking for a locally hosted solution so external problems fall with the broadband line suppliers.

    Once i've purchased a Server to handle your system what would I then need to purchase from yourselves to be able to have the 16 concurrent calls, some call reporting software and some managment software for moving phones about and call forwarding and stuff?

    If you need any other info let me know

    First off, be sure that the Cisco sets will work with 3CX. Do they currently have SIP firmware? See...http://www.3cx.com/sip-phones/cisco-7940g-7960g/
    For the 4 analogue phones, you'd need ATA's, like a couple of SPA-2102, or one of a number of four ports units.
    For the remote sets, again, they would have to have SIP firmware.
