Is it possible to use Cisco 5300 as a Pbx and at the same time use it for VOIP. If so please advice on the requirements both hardware and software. Urls as references will be highly appreciated30th March 2003 at 18:30 #24032nonameGuest
I do not know about the 5300 ,but it could be done with the MC3810.You could have a channel bank with 24 lines, attached to single line phones or trunks to it.
Not the easiest thing to do, but you get a dial tone and you will be able to make local calls, VOIP calls from the same phone.
Hope that helps!!!6th April 2003 at 01:01 #24033RadiumGuest
Is there a reason why you want to use a 5300? (i.e. you have one lying around)
a 5300 can carry calls but it doesn’t have any of the features people expect from the PBX, such as call holding, call waiting, etc, etc…
A 5300 is just a gateway. If you want PBX features you need Cisco Callmanager at least one gateway. Callmanager can scale from a few users to 100,000s of users with Callmanager clusters.
This means it can be “right sized” for what you need.
Here’s a list of all of Cisco’s Voice software, Callmager is one of them and it interoperates with any H323 gateway.

And if you mean to use in a fashion like:
1. Receive PSTN calls from 1E1 and send them to another E1, AND
2. Receive PSTN calls from 1E1 and send them to VOIP …
YES..it is doable.
