The State of VoIP: Vendor RFIs

Our fictional company is looking to implement VoIP. Eight vendors offered ideas in their RFIs -- Avaya, Alcatel, Interactive Intelligence, Nortel Networks, ShoreTel, Siemens and Zultys Technologies.

We received RFP responses from Avaya, Alcatel, Interactive Intelligence, Nortel Networks, ShoreTel, Siemens and Zultys Technologies. We wouldn't eject any one from serious consideration, but Siemens' HiPath captured our Editor's Choice award because of its excellent presence application and full-featured PBX and conferencing system, all at the least expensive price in our roundup.
