Hello to everyone.
I have recently taken a brave career change and moved in to Telecoms. I am learning on the job. Please forgive any silly things I may say.
During my search for Telephony related material which may help my development, I come across Asterisk.
Asterisk sounds bloody fantastic. I currently have a UNIX (FreeBSD) box on my home network which i’m planning to run as a web server to aid the development of my web software. Now i’m wanting to run Asterisk on it too, as it sounds fun and surely it will help me develop in Telecoms.
Introductions aside, my home set up will surely be very small as it will only be handling my home phone line, in essence, and maybe a 2nd line if my software takes off. But i’m wondering about a bigger set up.
What is the cost comparison for a small to very large business set up between Asterisk and say, a Meridian 11c mini and above.
At first glance i’m not seeing a great cost advantage in terms of hardware.
Any insight here is appreciated.
