I would like to make some trainning with Asterisk. The main problem is that of hardware. While getting Linux and x86 to work can be easy with VoIP, PCI asterisk compliant cards to test with VoIP to PSTN doesn’t look easy.
Is it possible to obtain a minimun PCI card available at “bargain” prices to start practicing?
Is out there some combination of small “fanless PCs” (OpenBrick for example) + PCI card + Linux + Asterisk at affordable prices for newcomers -600 to 900 Euros aprox.-?
I live in Spain.
