We currently have a vendor solution which has 4 T1s terminated to it. The tool can be used to place calls and test our production IVR along with creating ample call volume to do performance testing.
I would love to replace it with a few Asterisk boxes if possible. Is anyone using Asterisk for this purpose? Are you having any luck? Is this a common use of the tool?
Side question: I am new to the Asterisk piece but I typically support OSS tools and solutions. However to sell my peers on this I will probably need to conference in someone who can speak to the details while I am learning. Is this something I should look at Digium for? Would they be my best bet for a support service for an Asterisk deployment?
