I want to set up a phone system for a small office – only 4 people for now. I want the typical telephony functions for this office, voice mail, transfer, hold, etc.
Asterisk looks like my solution, but as a complete newbie, I’m not sure about what I’m reading here. A lot of the acronyms are lost on me. (What’s SIP?)
My questions are:
What do I need to get, hardware and software?
How do I set it up?
How easy is it to maintain, configure for someone with no Linux experience? (Mostly Mac)
Can I run Asterisk on a Mac?
What will it cost?
Thanks for your help.
