Is the high cost of analog stations holding you back from UC?

Many enterprises have chosen to replace legacy PBX systems with premise and cloud UC solutions, but have left the legacy systems in place which continues to drive analog station needs. This trend is driven by the relatively high cost of new analog station gear when compared to the cost of sweating an existing asset. Many of the legacy PBX systems are finally starting to show an increases in component failure rates, and the "sweat the asset" strategy now carries an increased risk – making a high density solution at an appealing price a the way to go.
