We are just about to move into a new office and I would really like to use asterisk as our phone system (never used Asterisk before).
What would you recommend as a setup given these conditions?
Broadband: 4Mb down - 400kb up
Possibly new provider: 10Mb down - 1Mb up
Around 12 people in the office
Rarely more than 3 people on the phone at any one time.
2 outgoing calls at one time would be sufficient (3 handy 3% of the time).
I would really like (but not vital) all the outgoing calls to show up as coming from our incoming number. Is it possible to spoof the number or us a VOIP provider.
Other than the project secretary the rest of us are rarely on the phone so a PC based interface would be convenient.
Any suggestions, recommendations or pointers are greatly appreciated.
The designated office IT guy.
