IPO Configuration

IPO Configuration

IPO Configuration

I have a customer that  has 3 locations in the same town.  I want to sell them Avaya IPO.  I am recommending a IPO 403 at the Main site and 2 IPO Small office edition at the two remote sites.  I want to connect the offices together so they can do desk to desk dialing and share the voice mail and external paging system and make local and LD calls.  What equipment is needed to accomplish this and what type of leased lines are needed?  The Main site currently has 12 centrex lines and the remote sites each have 2 lines and 2 stations.

Thank you!

RE: IPO Configuration

For best case scenerio, I would have point to point T-1s from the main office to the remotes.  Use a WAN 3 module and four cheap CSUs from Adtran.  If the remotes are in the same town the point to point T-1s should cost around $300-400 per month each and will give you the best connections.  The beauty in this is that the IPO can do all of the routing so there is no need for other equipment other than the CSUs.  We usually bring all of the internet and dial tone into the main site to add ROI for the backbone investment.  If this is too expensive you can go down the Frame Relay road, or the Internet via VPN road.  Both of those have good and bad points to them, but the point to point T-1 option is by far the best.
