Asterisk auto-dial and play message

Hi All,

I am a real novice to Asterisk and need a suggestion.

I am planning to build a system base on asterisk that is capable of dialing (outbound) a series of phone numbers and play a pre-recorded message. Asterisk will just dial the numbers I am going to provide and will not accept any inbound call.

Currently I have a single phone line (analog) which I can use for this purpose…

Can you recommend an FXO card that is suitable for this needs?


Mike –

Any fxo card will do.
But why don’t you use voip ?

how are you planning on doing the campaigns? I use Astercrm, which can be found at, it works well for what I need and there are a few others, I would like to hear what others use for this…
