Novice with Asterisk


I just installed Asterisk in my CentOS and… it works fine. My question is that what kind of server I need to develop an Asterisk Based Server, and what else must I buy to support ip phones. Please, tell my anything I could need, and I must plug to my server, and If I need anything from my phone provider… also.

Where I plug the ip phone’s? And from that X site, I plug to the server, or what’s the way?
