    If it's a Canopy system, then yes, it's full duplex as far as it allows.
    (I used to work for them) There are 2 basic models though - a fast one
    and a slow one. They have E1 adapters for them, (E1 to Ethernet) so if
    they can do that sort of stuff, then pure VoIP ought to be a doddle.

    Throw away the Analogue PBX in site 1 and install a new hybrid PBX :)

    You can do direct IP dialling on Grandstreams.

    >If Grandstreams can, which models should I use?

    How much money? They're all about the same in the BT200, through the
    GXP2000s .. For a simple phone the BT200 is adequate, but it's display
    is digits only. I think it has a "bat phone" mode too, so just lift the
    handset and the other one will ring...

    Why not use the analogue port of a Siemens phone, and also stick in a
    DECT repeater?

    Siemens phones seem to go further than any other DECT phone I've played

    There is a Siemens repeater and a Snom repeater (which we have in
    stock). Both work with Siemens phones.

    I'll dig out the prices and stuff.
