I’m looking to set up a VOIP network that allows VOIP calls to be received and then forwarded to a PSTN network. More specifically I’d like to be able to see who is calling and based on that SID forward the call to an appropriate PSTN number.
Am I able in Asterisk to receive these VOIP calls analyse them and forward out to the proper PSTN number? For example Joe Blow calls on his VOIP phone, it comes to me and Asterisk, I then see who the SIP is and know that Joe Blow’s calls should be forwarded to 401-555-1212?
Also, I’m new to all of this, what do I need on the PSTN side of things? Do I just plug the PSTN line into my gateway and the gateway places the call on the PSTN network? Is there a special type of service I need or is a regular phone line all I need?
Thanks in advance to whoever decides to take the time and write a response. It’s very much appreciated.
