Hi, I’m considering replacing our aging intertel phone system with an Asterisk PBX. we have a single t1 pri, with approximately 50 phone users. I’ll be using a te110p card to handle calls to and from the outside world.
I think I have everything I need for a successful installation (the phones, a server, and a card) but i had a question before diving into the deep.
- with the te110p card, are incoming calls from the t1 to this interface automatically routed to numbers in extensions.conf? if not, how does incoming call routing work?
I also noticed a post regarding server power requirements. the server I’ve spec’d out is a HP dual opteron 2.8, with 8gb memory and 1.5 tb drive space. is this sufficient for 50 simultaneous calls?
I’m quite eager to get going on an asterisk “beta test” here at my office, as Intertel is looking to fleece us for $36,000 in upgrades to a proprietary rental phone system that occupies an extra 1 rack of space, and cant even keep the correct time.
