I am avid home hobbyist. For about a decade I have been running a 3CX system hosted in a virtual linux server in a data center and using two different VOIP service providers for outbound calls and to receive DID calls.
I bought a UCM6302, a GXV3350 and Grandsteam Dect DP752 with 2 handsets hoping for a big upgrade.
When I looked at setting it up, I didn’t know where to start.
I was (foolishly) thinking that their would be a user-friendly interface to configure everything – since this was all new equipment and all from same company.
I went low-level to get my 3CX system up and running – including installing linux, setting up firewall rules, installing an configuring the software, using port forwarding at home to make inbound and outbound calls reliable for the handful of extensions I have, and much more… but I really would like to not go through a similar learning curve for this system – plus the UCM6300 ecosystme has some nice features that should help simplify the setup greatly.
Would someone be willing to set up or help me set up my new system?
I’m looking for 2 DID’s, and an outbound trunk. It would be nice to have outbound service from two different voip providers to allow outbound roll-over in case of outage on the primary carrier.
I want two main “lines” so-to-speak. One for business, and one for my home line. I’ll have no more than 4 to 6 “extensions”. I have a plain-old dect wireless system that will serve as the main phone(s) for the “house” line.
Call line appearance (or maybe I have the name wrong) would be good… the idea of treating a recieved call as if it were on an old keypunch system – at least to the extent possible would be nice – but I’m willing to rely on your recommendation of what works well with this system. Parking calls, etc isn’t foreign to me.
Cell-phone integration… easily passing a call back and forth, having simultaneous ring, or some other type of integration or cell phone twinning would be nice.
BLF lights are always good.
PLUS… the UCM6302 opens up a whole new world for having my on audio conference bridge, and browser-based video conferencing with screen sharing.
For anyone who’s set up these systems, I’ll gladly pay you to set me up or get me started.
I’m not clueless when it comes to phones, voip, networking, servers and more, but I really don’t have the mental fortitude to start from square zero on a new learning curve.
BTW, I’m happy to configure accounts for outbound trunking and for inbound DIDs on whatever provider(s) you feel are worthwhile… I can establish a couple of temporary DID’s to get everything going, and then port my DID’s over once everything’s stable.
I’m not looking for a pre-packaged $30 per line per month type of solution… I pay $1 per month for each did and $0.005 per minute for inbound and outbound – so I’m aware that VOIP with our own PBX can be quite economical. I don’t have to have the absolute cheapest services. I’m looking for good value – good call quality, high connection rates, SMS support for my DIDs, etc.
If you’re experience and are willing to help me, let’s talk. $100, or $200 – not get rich money… but something for your time and expertise, are all reasonable to me… Get me going, please, and I’ll be very, very happy… plus, you’ll probably like me. I currently run a Yealink T46G , but I have purchased one of the newer Grandstream desk phones… it has a few hard buttons and a nice touch screen… so I’m looking to upgrade to it as my main desk phone. Thanks… and nice to meet you! -Philip
