I am a complete newbie to Asterisk and would like to know if it will suit my needs. I work for a small company that acquired a nortel phone system with 8 meridian phones. My goal is to set up a system that is used more for communications from office to house, via dialing an extension, than it is to set up internal office extensions. There are 5 people that work from home throughout the US, and we need to be able to communicate with ease.
Will Asterisk support this function? Or is it more of a hardware issue? Any help is appreciated, I just want to know if this is the right direction.
