I’m interested in Asterisk. I need some info.
Could you plz take a moment to help?
Who we are: www.apachecafe.info
What we are trying to do:
Create a voice mail + auto attendant + mail box extensions + call forwarding + fax + email interoperability + on hold music/info. We want people to be able to call and hear info then enter a prompt and go to one of three extensions, then hear more info , then leave a message, or go to another extension(which may be a direct line). We also want to fax via this software and be able to remotely update and change the functions. We need flexibility on greeting time and message length and quantity. There is more but these are the basics
What we have: We have a remote dedicted server running Linux Core #? We have a good programmer but how much of his time will it require to get configured properly? We have 2 phone lines, and a SDSL line.
Is Asterisk going to fit our needs? Besides the software do we need anything else: ie, hardware to integrate with our regular office phone lines? Do we need to install any “cards” to make it work. What kind of stability should I expect?
I know there is probably some of this info in the archives but Ihaven’t seen it yet. I’m still looking and learning. Any info you can offer is greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
