The ShoreTel IP telephony system is a completely integrated IP phone
system that scales seamlessly. It is designed and built from the ground
up to be the market’s easiest to use, easiest to manage, full featured
Pure IPPBX system.
Incorporating a switch-based hardware platform, the ShoreTel
distributed architecture makes each switch and site an independent call
processor that continues to operate seamlessly in the event of wide area
network (WAN) failure. All servers can be disconnected from the
Shoregear switches and the ShoreTel phone system will continue to place
and receive calls.
