I’m new to Asterisk and VOIP. I’m using Asterisk@Home and it is an amazing combination of ease and power! I have a small office that needs to have 7 phones with extensions and voicemail. We’re in Alaska so there is no VOIP provider that provides a local phone #, and furthermore, our internet connection to this office is over a wireless connection so it’s not much for throughput.
What is the best hardware/ card (& IP Phone Model) I need so that Asterisk can act as a PBX for an analog phone line (from the telco) that is one pilot line with a 7 multi-line hunt feature?
So the system needs to handle 7 concurrent phone lines that roll over from a main number…
Also, let me clarify that I have no idea what the telco phone cable would look like in this configuration. Do they give you 7 separate phone terminations? If so, would I use one of the Digium cards? Which one?
