Connecting to buildings
« on: March 02, 2012, 11:02:27 AM »
The company bought a building across the street (less than 50m) and would like to connect the existing IVX S-Class esi phone system.  Is this possible with a directional atenna and additional equipment?  If so could you give a brief description of what would be needed?

Hi Philip,

I am not familiar with the ESI product line - so I don't know if it's a VoIP system, but are you wanting to connect the buildings by point-to-point wireless?

The ESI S-Class connections to extensions and other components are physical only and the limit is 1000 feet. To do what you are trying to do would require replacing the S-Class with at least an ESI-50 (not 50L).

If all they want is analog phones a wireless shot with Multivoip on each end would do it. If they want ESI Digital Sets you will need copper in between, one option is to rent pairs from the telco. Otherwise as others have said upgrade to a CS-50 and put some IP sets out.
