Just started a new job as a Linux system designer/admin and I have taken on the project of building a Asterisk based phone system for two offices. I have only ever built a small home Asterisk installation with a load of softphones and an external sip account.
We have two offices (one main, where the main server and incoming phone lines will be located)
This is my guess of what our spec will be (should be?):
- Two incoming lines from BT two different numbers (Is that the best way, can we have multiple calls on a single line?)
- One main Asterisk box to accept these connections, all calls will first go to the reception IP phone
- A load of softphones on computers and IP phones on desks (I don’t need help with that bit)
- The second office will have an internet connection, have its own asterisk box and will piggy back of our main one with the phone lines
Also here is my diagram in PDF: http://davidmaitland.me/linux/lib/exe/fetch.php?media=officephonesystemproposal.pdf
Really my main question is with the BT lines, what can I get?
Second does it look like its all do-able, with the second office internet link? (I have time)
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
