Please forgive me if something like this has already been answered, but I just need some clarification.
Some background: We are a medium sized business with 50 (expanding to 100+) employees. We have two T1’s coming in to our office, one for data and one for voice. (We’re not locked in to this configuration. Our T1’s can be reconfigured as necessary to implement a VOIP solution) We are looking at upgrading our current Digital phone system to a VOIP solution and would like to use Asterisk.
For hardware configuration, would we configure as follows?
- T1 plugs directly into Asterisk server via T1 Card.
- Asterisk server connects into Ethernet 10/100 switch.
- Phones connect to jacks that are wired back to connect into switch from above.
Am I missing anything there? Also, would a voice T1 be used for Asterisk or a data T1? I have started reading the documentation, but much of what I have found has been geared toward either the home user or setups with regular POTS lines. Any assistance/info is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
