I am looking to convert this system to Vonage and not sure what I need. I have 3 lines coming in plus one fax. As this is analog do I simply get two Vonage routers and unplug from the wall into the router?

Do I have to re-program the Panasonic system or will it simply work as before? Continue to hunt, roll over etc.,

Appreciate any help.

I suspect that the answers to your two questions are yes and yes, but why don't you tell us more about how the Panasonic system works for you now. That will help us better answer your questions.

Basic system, 3 lines come in and roll over if one is busy. A lot of international calls. Dedicated fax line is fairly busy most of the day.
I also host own web site so have server on hosting appllcations all day. Have voice box, conference call, nothing fancy.

I was looking at a Covad system, they offer one that is $3,000 set up, this gives you a Siemens Router 5950, 2 Netgear 8 port switches, 3 LG phones, 1 Cisco 186 2-port adapter for fax machine plus it is $400 a month - $55 per phone, $200 for 768 VOA DSL.

Seems expensive, the euipment can be bought much cheaper but the monthly cost doesn't seem too bad, although $55 per phone?

They tell me this is a real business solution compared to what I could configure with a Vonage system. I read elsewhere some people have problems with DSL speed, anything 384 or below might cause problems. The Vonage would be much cheaper, especially if I could hook up to my exisiting Panasonic System.

Any comments would be appreicaiated.

rail, realize that you're almost talking apples to oranges here.

Covad offers business class (read: has SLAs, but uses the same technology) Voip for businesses. It is this business class that (arguably) warrants the higher cost of their Voip. You get a turnkey solution, made to work like you request.

On the cheaper side is Vonage. Yes, you can use Vonage for business, with PBXes, with multiline phones and fax machines, but none of it guaranteed to be compatible (or up) and you or a consultant must set ip up and configure it. Look at the numerous posts and responses on this forum for PBX or related issues. Those that frequently respond on this board are the business Vonage support at this point.

Vonage is marketed to the masses - the average home consumer. Covad markets to business. I can't say if Covad is better (I had them as an ISP for a while with no complaints) from perfomance. I might venture that for questions like "why can't my PBX get a dial tone", Covad will answer. Vonage hold the line they don't support PBXes. That, for a critical business tool like phones, support may be your decision point.

imagine, if you get the 384 kbps dsl, you'll quickly run out of upload bandwidth since each call takes up 90kbps with 4 lines, that 360 kbps just for the 4 phones which means no one will be able to use their computers to get to the net nor will your server be able to function properly. I would imagine the first thing to go will be your call quality and probably a lot of other things.

If you want to use 4 lines with a server, you will need to get a business speed dsl or better.
