    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 appreciated

    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!!!

    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 … is doable.

    Shoot an email to for more.
