I’m a digital artist I have an idea that necessitates some Computer Telephony Interface knowledge, and I’m wondering if AsteriskNOW is the solution.
I need to connect 15-20 regular desktop telephones to a stand alone(First Person) telephone network with a computer(and modem) operating as an automated call center to these phones(this is a self contained network). The programmed automation would cause the phones to ring, display customizable “caller ID” data, and when answered, would play varied “text to speech” content.
Would appreciate any and all advice(What other products are available? Are there any ready made Asterisk solutions available? What types of hardware and software are needed?) I’m just beginning to research this, but could use a leg up as I’m not an IT professional.
