If you use Skype you are at the mercy of whatever they decide to include
in the software. (Their business plan, not yours.) If you go for a
standards based solution that uses SIP or IAX you are not tied in to a
single provider, and equipment will interoperate. Further, there are
many different SIP based VoIP providers out there - mostly you get what
you pay for (budget call charges but no customer service, right up to
reasonable call charges with excellent customer service).

I'm sure those with a commercial interest in your query will be along
shortly - it would be worth speaking with them to see how your kit could
interoperate. You should also talk to your existing PBX provider to see
whether they have something that is SIP/IAX compliant.
