I am completely new to Asterisk and Telephony in general but I have an idea that I want to work on and I’m trying to figure out if it is a realistic endeavor.
Here’s what I want to do:
User calls into my toll free number.
System identifies number of user in user database.
System prompts user to type in a password.
User types in the password on their phone.
System validates and then takes them to a menu. System tells them their choices.
User types in their choices.
System either sends them information by reading over the phone or sending them a text message.
I am an experience Java enterprise developer and can manage all the back end things, but I’ll wondering how to exchange the information back and forth between the user and the Java application. Also, what type of hardware and software requirements do I need to host this kind of application, from the telephony perspective, if I want to support multiple users calling in at once.
Thanks in advance for your help!
