My employer has decided to move us to a new building in about a month and we’re looking at migrating to a more advanced phone system (as opposed to just having a half-dozen phone lines in here). We currently run two small businesses out of here and would like to have them share the same phone system.
I’m currently looking at Asterisk@Home but it doesn’t seem to want to allow me to set things up the way that I want (at least not that I can tell). Here’s what we’d like to do.
Each company will have the following:
- (2) PSTN Lines
- (2) VoIP lines
Based on which line a call comes in on, I would like the correct company’s menu to come up. Employees should not have access to a phone line that isn’t one of the 4 for their company.
While it is not required, I would like to be able to have people in either company can call each other without having to use two phone lines (one going out, one coming back in). If that is possible, I’d like an internal menu that will give a complete directory listing of all of the people in both companies so that employees don’t have to memorize 20 or 30 different numbers.
Is all that possible with Asterisk@Home? If not (which I’m betting is the case), is it possible with Asterisk? If so, can anyone point me to a working example or a guide book that deals with this sort of thing?
