Hello, I am looking to get some technical information regarding my future Asterisk implimentation. Here is what I want to do. I would like to configure my system with no traditional TDM equipment, strictly voip(sip). What would I need to do as far as outbound/inbound? Meaining can I integrate this with a voip service like skype/vonage without incurring additional cost or would I be better off purchasing a sip trunk from my local provider (Verizon). If I went the sip trunk method is there a specific way to integrate this, more over is there a specific way to use asterisk without a T1/E1 card or any other type of hardware?
My goal is to build an Asterisk box using existing servers, I do not currently use a VOIP service provider and I am wondering how I would integrate my Asterisk box with that provider. Can this be done and if so what service providers should I approach?
