I read about Asterisk a while ago and remembered it the other day when I realised I was going to be needing some sort of telephone system for a company I’m looking to set up.
For a variety of reasons it would not be possible for me to connect the phone system to a land line and I would have to rely on VOIP which I believe Asterisk supports, but I just don’t know how that works!
I have found a number of sites offering to sell 0800 numbers, but if I get such a number can I then connect it to Asterisk and how does that work.
Also, how many connections can be made to this system. If someone is already calling my VOIP number will it still allow other people to queue or would that require multiple lines?
If someone could help me understand the basics of how it works I might be able to make more sense of the user documentation!
Thanks a lot!
