[Freeswitch-dev] SLA/BLA

At Epygi (www.epygi.com), they worked with Aastra to auto-provision the
phones so it becomes a non-issue. They manage easily & the PBX, downloads
the latest tested firmware & automatically updates the phones. We even get
the PBX to load-up the correct language interface.

Epygi have also done this with SNOM.

Ask SNOM & Aastra how this is done & you can do it from the switch as well.

We use primarily use Aastra in our network. We have about 150 480i's
deployed and 20-30 5(3,5,7,7i's) series deployed. Definitely different
than the Snom in their general feel and overall usability but that is
all relative to the user.  Aastra's definitely have their issues. I find
that reboots are often required to get them right. Plus the firmware
fixes are slow coming from the Manufacture for the mean time to
resolve/repair reported issues.

On the upside I find them very easy to manage (although http provision
puts snom and aastra on an equal playing field) and when we conducted
our initial customer feedback surveys the Aastra's had a higher rating
than the Snoms.

Now if we could just get either to do BLA that would be the golden
ticket in my mind lol :)
