Call Center - Multi-site connectivity

By if6was9 ·
I am looking for feedback on the evaluation points between two call distribution methodologies for a multi-site call center: CPE based point to point network vs. PSTN based take back and transfer routing. Circuit switched solutions. VoIP is not under consideration at this time. I wish to establish the critical evaluation factors as well as get feedback on possible weighting of factors. Finally, I would like any case history information that can be shared.
* Costs - Capital costs for additional infrastructure and OA&M costs VS. network transfer charges
* Fault tolerance and redundancy
* Routing flexibility
* Impact on CTI and call reporting

Call Center - Multi-site connectivity

CPE and PSTN are both obsolete, as several IT people can tell you, as they recovered from the 9/11 disaster.
But, since you can not consider VoIP at this time, I would go for the lowest capital cost.
That is going to be PSTN in most cases.
Now tothe articles. is the place to start.
(That's not a typo. It has two Cs in front.)
This is part of CMPnet.
This is a trade publications group that is directed at Solution Providers. (VARs)
This will give you the links to themanufacturers white papers, and articles you want.
