I’m starting out with asterisk, still reading the docs, the handbook, and (when it arrives) the Packt book.
I’d like a quick check on the feasability of my goal. At the first, the system will extend the analog lines with new functionality, VOIP is but coming later.
I have 3 incoming analog lines: 1 voice, 1 fax, 1 mixed voice/fax
In essence, I hope asterisk can add following functionality to the present situation:
- if unanswered, an incoming call is recorded
- recorded messages can be listened to, using local phone, pc, internet?, incoming admin call
- incoming faxes on voice line routed to fax device, printer, email
- outgoing faxes can be sent from pc.
-outgoing voice calls to use first the fax lines, thus freeing voice line for extra ipphones?.
(CallerID possibly showing voice line number?).
-All conversations to be recorded
I think the TDM400P in its TDM13b incarnation would be a valid choice
I would like to use the same server (most likely an smp machine) for asterisk and for opengroupware.
your remarks are welcome
