Today we visited the casing and front panel printing people with our design ideas for the Blio PBX.
Pics are at the usual place.
It seems there are two routes forward:
1) We make a Cream/Beige colour 1U box that blends in then you mount it flat against a wall. This would be very much like your traditional (analog) PABX systems found in many small businesses around the country. We basically assume that a doctor’s office or a small legal firm would like to replace their PBX but keep it on the wall and keep most of their current phones.
2) We make a Black/Dark-grey colour 1U box that’s designed for rack mounting in a 19″ cabinet. It’s more like an Ethernet switch or router. You could put it down on a desk or stack it, but it kinda asks for an environment with at least a small 19″ wall box/cabinet (which will cost you about R500) or a big server room cabinet. We basically assume this is for an office that has structured Cat5 Ethernet wiring. With this route we are guessing people may keep some of their analog phones but they want a few SIP phones.. they are more tech-savvy, early adopters.
Now, the fun part where you, the reader get to shape the future of our product.
You can answer with one of 4 options..
If the price was the same and you _had_ to buy one, would you take a black or cream one and would you put it in a cabinet or on your wall..
