to Glenn Bishop on recertifying as an ACSS-SME on April 1,
2014 (he had until mid May). He was first certified back in
2010. In case you haven't seen the other news, Glenn certified
as an SSCA from The SIP School in March, as well. You can
read all about that on our blogpost.
Rest assured that whether installing or servicing an Avaya
IP Office, you will have the best support with Glenn. With
so many years of experience (he's worked on IP Office since
it first came out in 2002) and certification, he is the go
to guy for many Avaya Business Partners nationwide for installation
recently had the chance to buy out an IP Office system from
a client who was moving to another building, but had a phone
system already in place there. This system was installed by
another Avaya Business Partner in the area. It was a great
price for gaining inventory to use for our maintenance customers.
The system came with 40 5410 phones. We've already sold some
of the 5410's at a good price to one of our client's who had
those type phones and are expanding. Anyone else interested?
54xx digital phones became End of Sale by Avaya August 1,
2011. See the Avaya notice
These phones continue to be popular, even though they are
now only avaialable as used equipment. Yes, they are cheaper
than the newer digital phones,and some say they have a better
sound quality than the new phones. One of our client's, who
is an intellectual property lawyer with his own patents in
electronics, swears by the 54xx phones. We had him try all
the new IP phones as well as the digital 14xx series and the
9508. Who are we to judge? We prefer the new phones.
October 2, 2006 the Merlin Magix system became End of Sale.
See the Avaya notice https://downloads.avaya.com/css/P8/documents/100019584
We provide a lot of remote support for the Magix systems nationwide.
We provide troubleshooting and programming.
Companies still cling to this system. While it is a solid
work horse, it is old technology, dating back to the '80's.
The best move would be to upgrade to an IP Office, using the
Magix 44xx phones. It's a cost effective way to get into the
new technology, getting your phone system to work for you.
Then, when cash flow permits, you can change out old phones
withthe new digital sets, utilizing different features available
on the new phones, such as visual voice. Here's a picture

November 8, 2010 the Partner ACS system became End of Sale.See
the Avaya notice
popular systems were simple to use. We still support these
products, but we usually don't carry much stock, as they tend
to go fast. We can still get parts through the used market,
for the most part. Some are harder to come by. Check out our
Partner ACS page. Our first phone system here was a Partner.
Great system that lasted many years. http://bishopcomputer.com/partneracs.html
On that page in the Partner ACS area, we also have the
"How to use your Partner Phone" guide, basically
how to program for users. There is also an upgrade path to
Avaya IP Office if you have the Partner ACS phones, and you
can visit that at the top part of the Partner page.
