Check out these books:

Cisco Switched Internetworks : Vlans, Atm & Voice/Data Integration (Cisco Technical Expert) by Chris Lewis,

AND

Cisco Packetized Voice & Data Integration by Robert Caputo.


How small a business is a "very small business"? Integrated voice and data networks can be rather costly to implement, and not would not be cost effective for "very small business"es. Something to propose to provide similar functionality to this business would be an Internet-based video/teleconferencing solution based on an ADSL circuit or dial-up connection to the Internet at each of the business' offices. The business would receive similar, yet increased benefit (video capability) at a substantially lower cost for implementation. I think this is a greater value and ROI for smaller businesses that seek to utilize VoIP capabilities.

Good luck with whatever strategy your company decides to go implement.

I was not looking for a voice over VoIP. I'm looking for a wiring intergration ware as all voice and data lines use cat5 cable, patch panels and bunch down blocks. Where as I could have two jacks per wall plate and one is used as data and the other as a phone jack or later on use it as a network connection. I have read at one web site where a gentlemen has done that and can use the outlets for either date or voice. I am also looking for away to have some nice but cheap digital phones with some type of phone system like Medriane phone system with voice mail, intercome, etc. If you have any other sugestion I would appreiate it.

Thanks,
James Taylor
