Anyone have any update on the 6900 series phones on the 5000? Does it look like SIP mode with Phone Manager is the ONLY way these phones will be implemented in the 5000 or will they be MiNet phones?

My sales guys are just looking for some info and Mitel isn't telling them anything other than "first quarter of 2018"... nothing about SIP mode or requiring the MiVoice Office Application Server.

Having 6900 series phones in sip mode only and required to have phone manager isnít much of a upgrade for me...might as well use 5300 series

So Mitel is requiring people purchase a server and services they don't want in order to get the latest phones... This is my problem with this, and in the general direction Mitel is headed recently, of making people get something they don't want. In the last say 2 years since they have been pushing Phone Manager we have installed maybe 40-50 MiVO systems and TWO had Phone Manager installations with them, and one of those was a customer who got MiCollab and hated it so much that we had to give them an alternative or pull the system. I think we added one to an existing 5000 because their old UCA server crashed and they wanted to upgrade to something newer.

acejavelin,

Since we have started selling the Mitel Phone Manager we have sold quite a few of them. Of course we didn't start until 4.3, but most customers like the added features they get with it.

I am not so sure about Mitel requiring it to be sold with the 6900 sets to get all of the features, as not all of our customers bought Phone Manager, but I think it is their way of adding features without making too many changes to how the MiVO-250 functions as a standalone system; much like Intelligent Router.

I do like the fact that they will be adding some resiliency functionality in the future for the 6900 series phones which isn't even a possibility with any of the current offers. Maybe they will start making the MiVO-250 more of a SIP server than the MiVB or MiVB-X servers; who knows.

Thanks,

TE
