Asterisk as a Professional IVR???
- You better know what you are doing
- Go read up on VXML instead
I got my Asterisk box running and so far I love it.
My question is this:
Can I use Asterisk for a professional IVR ?
I am currently using an IVR package from 2001 running on NT4.0 (LOL). It works but I get a bunch of ISDN errors with the PRIs and I experience fast busy signals 5% of the time.
I won’t need it as a PBX (I may setup a few phones for testing, but the intent is really to get an IVR going.
I’m asking because I work for a Telco and every time I encounter a professional Asterisk install at a customer, they are usually complaining about dropped calls / crashes.
My IVR program is quite complex, it’s a Telephone Dating Service and I would estimate that I have about 500 DB Reads/Writes + 200 prompts on 3 PRI’s.
Please let me know if you think the IVR Packages is strong enough to go full Prod and any comments are always appreciated.
Also, I noticed some Pearl Samples of IVR programming on the Net. Is Pearl my only option to program IVR?
Thanks a lot,
