Here we will explore OfficeServ 7030 and its practicality as a phone system for small businesses. The Samsung 7030 cost has helped it to make major inroads into this price-sensitive sector of the market. But the invoice isn't everything so we ask about the value proposition of the Samsung OS7030 to determine whether it is worth the investment.

In terms of size capability the Samsung 7030 can take 8 outside lines (SIP, ISDN2 or standard trunks), 16 digital and 4 analogue extensions for faxes, credit card machines & alarms. You can choose to deploy the latest ITP handsets but at the time of writing, in 2011, the LANs of smaller companies are not sufficiently robust to have the necessary quality of service (QOS). Therefore, the OfficeServ 7030 MGI equivalent is mainly used to provide remote VoIP terminals or to network multiple Samsung 7030 equipped buildings together.

A brand new Samsung OfficeServ 7030 box can be obtained for as little as 150 from discount Platinum dealers such as Phones4Less.co.uk and you can speak to them. That Samsung 7030 pricetag is groundbreaking but are you missing something by ordering a Samsung OfficeServ 7030? Well its big brother, the OS7400, was voted best buy in "What to Buy for Business". You will struggle to find anything lacking in the OS 7030, it's close to identical but downsized.

The Samsung OfficeServ voicemail licence price is one attraction. You get call recording, auto attendant and a gateway to email any messages or recordings. Better still it's only 112.50 per port to purchase outright. Two ports suit most SMEs and that's what is built into each back-plane in this maximum of 2 central control unit solution.

The IP element is also inbuilt to the processor module of the Samsung OfficeServ 7030. It is disabled by default and just 37.50 plus engineer costs to switch on. The CTI integration to computers is easily and cheaply installed. It will integrate into almost any existing database and even screen-pop Google Places pages. It is a true world-beater and we can't think of an organisation that would require more functionality.

There was a point in the early 1990s when telephone systems from Korea were considered to be the cheap alternative to European (Alcatel, Ascom & Siemens), Japanese (Panasonic, Toshiba & Nitsuko) and North American (Nortel, Mitel, Avaya & Cisco). These days the wise should go ahead and bag themselves a bargain.
