I’m a network administrator and I’d like to move from our legacy PBX to something a lot more flexible…
We have the following config:
PRI --> Samsung IDCS 500 PBX(Paging, IVR, voicemail, etc) --> proprietary phones
We would like to implement this as the final solution:
PRI --> Digium G100 --> Asterisk --> Yeahlink SIP phones
We don’t have great internet so we’d like to stick with the PRI lines for now… my question is in the best way to gracefully switch over to asterisk with very little disruption.
The new system can exist side by side with the Samsung system (up to the point of not using the PRI) but I want to do prior testing with the PRI on the G100 & Asterisk system before even thinking about switching over… we’re going to make changes on how the dialplan will flow in the new system (compared with the existing) but I’m more concerned with making sure that we will be getting/sending calls, callerid’s working, etc, etc…
What would be the most intelligent way of approaching the situation?
