Case Study – Bell & Clements

The origins of Bell & Clements date back to 1983.

The solution compromised 100 IP extensions with Unify Microsoft Outlook Integration for 85 staff. This includes click to dial, call control, integrated contacts, presence and drag and drop conferencing.

After demonstrating the Unify capabilities onsite, additional Web Collaboration and Conferencing licences were added to enable a true Unified Communications solution.

Migrating the ISDN lines and 200 DDI’s to SIP was a key factor in enabling future cost reductions and Disaster Recovery options. Inbound Call manager was setup for call control and business continuity on the main number, allowing the customer to control diverts in the event of a disaster.

Deployment took place out of hours and was managed by CMT’s engineering team alongside Bell & Clements internal IT department.

To support Bell & Clements robust DR and BC solutions, CMT installed a new 100MB fibre Ethernet connection for resilience and backup.
