I’d like to setup my SOHO for 3 phones. What services from the phone company do I need for the 2 questions below? I’m more interested in what I need to ask the phone company (lionshare of cost I would presume) - I can hack on the local side later.
1. 3 local extensions accessible from outside
I’m presuming Direct Inward Dial is what I want. Is this correct? In term of hardware need a card that has 1 - 3 fxo’s? I believe the phone company provides the extension number that Asterisk can use to route to extensions.
2. 1 external phone number 3 local phones.
No Idea what I’d ask the phone company. Does this mean I need a 3fxo connection card and have the phone company bind 1 phone number to the 3 fxo’s? I guess my question is what do I ask the phone company to map 1 phone number to 3 fxo’s so that Asterisk can determine where to route calls.
Any information greatly appreciated,
