I am new to the whole asterisk system so please bear with me.
I am looking for a PBX system for a new office of ours. I will list my requirements and my proposed solution. Can someone validate that asterisk can support the requirements and this is the best solution. I would appreciate any feedback for improvements or suggestions.
4 Inbound telco (POTS) lines
Voicemail with remote retrieval
Call forwarding- If away from desk call will be forwarded to cell/home/etc.
2 outbound VOIP line- for the call forwarding
I have a older PII server computer that I will use for the system. I understand that if I buy the TDM400 card with 4 X100M modules I will be connected and ready to connect to POTS. I will then buy sip phones. I have a cable internet connection.
Can the forwarding be done via VOIP?
Do I need any other hardware?- (I read something about echo cancelling)
