I need some help please with installation of a Meridian 1 Option 81c

I need some help please with installation of a Meridian 1 Option 81c

I have been approached to head a very large project to upgrade a call centre in France both from
a business point of view [e.g. Process Re-Engineering, CRM] and from a Technical point of view
[PBX, ACD, CTI, IVR, etc...].

Whilst I have experience in about 85 % of their request, there is one area which I have not YET

This is the area where I wonder anyone of you would have some usefull experience?

In short, we are talking about a BT Meridian Option 81C that need to be installed in lieu of two older

What I need to understand is the following:

1. What are the main TASKS which need to be performed during this swapping?

2. What are the main pitfalls one should expect during this swapping?

Unfortunately speed is [as usual] the essence as I have to make a business presentation this Friday.

Any help you can provide will be great!

Many thanks in advance to you all.
