Retaining existing digital handsets with VoIP PABX-replacement

pts.

VoIP
We have 300 extension PABX that is dying. We want to replace it with a VoIP-capable syste, but not implement VoIP until we have reduced bandwith use and purchased more capacity. (Don't suggest "buy it now and it will pay for itself". We are a charity, so conventional ROI calculations go out of the window.) We'd like to keep the existing 300 digital handsets, and down the track migrate to soft phones and headsets. Is this a) feasible b) sensible ?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What make/model of PBX do you have currently?

We have several Mitel digital PBXs, and their IP-based system has several options for sitting along-side or replacing the main controller for the digital system, allowing for a pretty seamless transition to IP-based telephony — at your own pace.
