Interfacing NodePhone To Your PBX
A fair degree of technical expertise is required to interface NodePhone Business Trunks to IP PBX phone systems. This should be considered carefully before committing to the service.
NodePhone Business Trunks require certified interoperability of the IP PBX or phone system with Broadsoft, or acceptance from the customer that their equipment may not be supported (from a technical support perspective) by Internode. Each case will be assessed individually to determine the level of support that may be available for the given equipment.
Many IP PBX systems already successfully interface to NodePhone Business Trunks, including: Cisco Access Servers, UC500, Cisco Call Manager Express, Mitel 3300, Zultys MX series, DrayTek VigorIPPBX 2820, LG-Ericsson iPECS, 3CX, and Asterisk. While these implementations are welcome, please note that Internode do not provide design, consultancy, or ongoing support services for IP PBX systems.
Most business customers will require the services of a trusted, competent voice/data systems integrator to achieve an optimal outcome. Internode suggest the following systems integrators:
Voice and data communications are mission-critical to the majority of businesses these days. You need to carefully select a systems integration partner based on trust, competence, and experience.
Bandwidth and Quality of Service
For best results, we recommend an Internode broadband service, as dimensioning the broadband connection requires careful attention. Some generic recommendations are a minimum service of 1500/256 kbps for two concurrent calls, and 512/512 kbps for five concurrent calls. That is, generally, around 100 kbps per concurrent call or channel.
'Quality of Service' prioritisation of broadband traffic is also required. The NodePhone platform automatically prioritises voice traffic from the Internode network. Your equipment needs to do the same for voice traffic into the network.
NodePhone Business Trunks are available with one or more 100 number in-dial ranges within the call zones of Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney. Coverage is also available for South Australia, Tasmania, and Australian Capital Territory.
