what is the difference between between E1 card and E1 gateway?
E1 card costs around 100$ whereas E1 gateway costs more than 1000$.
in terms of benefiting from E1 technology, do both (card and gateway) when connected to my asterisk server deliver the same services?
i can understand that E1 card needs more configuration (related to dahdi module) and E1 gateway would be configured as sip endpoint(pjsip module) which makes E1 gateway much easier to configure.
but does that mean that E1 card needs a professional programmer to make it work with asterisk? i have been working with asterisk for more than a year, as well as with freepbx, i am pretty good with asterisk dialPlan and so on. but yes i have never worked with dahdi module, so would it be so hard to make E1 card beneficial ? or with documentation here as well as forum plus my medium experience with asterisk and freepbx then it would come to a happy ending?
