If it's about VoIP, SIP or Internet Telephony but it doesn't seem to fit anywhere else, post it here.

A friend currently has a system comprising of a Panasonic NS700 and a dozen or so KX-NT551 handsets. They want to terminate the contract with the current company at the same time as they move to a new address. They have received a number of quotes from companies trying to push the towards purchasing a whole new system with new handsets. Is this the right way to go or could they make use of the equipment at their new location? They're happy to ditch the NS700 if there is a cloud solution that the handsets could be used by. Any help gratefully received.

The Panasonic NS-700 supports SIP The SIP trunking services through virtual CO line cards so there should be no need to replace any hardware. Does your Panasonic NS-700 have a V-SIPGW16 card installed? If it does, get yourself a suitable SIP trunk and configure a virtual slot on the Panasonic NS-700 to use it!

As an example, I have included below a basic guide showing how to configure a Panasonic NS-700 for use with Voipfone.co.uk:

STEP 1
Log in to your NS-700 web interface, you will be initially greeted with this screen:
