Average costs per end user station for Mitel vs competitors

    A couple of figures I've heard tossed about by marketeers that the
    average cost per phone for IP systems has dropped from around $1000
    each to about $500. Does anyone have any links to cost analysis
    whitepapers? Can anyone confirm these cost estimates?

    thanks

    Hal

    Your prices are about right depending on what you are looking for.
    Cisco, MiTel and Nortel (some of the larger guys) all are proprietary
    and hide the real cost in their software as you need to buy their
    "call manager" type of software to run these phones, otherwise for the
    most part as useless. There are other IP phones on the marketplace
    that are completly stand alone for $100 more that their prices but
    dont require costly software as everything is built within thew units.
    I am not promoting but favour the Qtelnet phones and gateways for
    this reason.

    My thoughts :)

    Cheers ...

    You can get Cisco phones that range from about a grand (high end conference
    station) to $100 (cheapy 1 line).
    7960 and 7940, the phones that most people will want are in the 200 - 400
    range.
