Newbie Questions

Hello everyone…

I’m new to asterisk and I have some questions to help me to understand if it’s the right platform for my needs…

I need a system that can call all my contacts (a bunch at once) and play them a recorded message…

Can I do it on a normal server with SIP? or must I have special hardware?
If so… What hardware do I need for that?
and if needed what addons (and if not exist - in what languages can I program those addons)

Thank You very much

An Asterisk server, with just sip lines, can do this; to start the calls use “call files” or the Originate action of the AMI interface.
