Hello to all the forum members and thanks a lot to all the developers and contributors of Asterisk for developing such a beautiful open source application.
I am newbie to Asterisk so i need some help from the experts. I want to setup an Outbound Call center of 5 seater.
I want asterisk server to run on the following configuration
- Processor - Intel i5
- Motherboard - Intel DH55TC
- RAM - 4 GB
- HDD - Segate Barracuda 1TB
is the configuration is enough for my setup. Do i need any extra hardware or software for my setup other than the internet connection. The client machine will connect to the server. Can i run the [b]GoAutoDial/b which is a complete package for call center on this setup.
For calling i have to buy only SIP account from VOIP provider? Is there any other way to do so? And if i buy an account from the VOIP provider how many SIP channels i have to buy? And what is the concept of SIP channels (i have seen it in the Skype Connect)? Is there any provider who provide unlimited SIP channels so that i can use according to my wish?
Is there any company which can provide less call rates than Skype and provide good VOIP quality? I have seen Localphone (http://www.localphone.com/) it provide much cheaper call rates than Skype but the site does not provide the number of SIP channels that they will provide for the VOIP and i don’t know the quality of service they provide.
Thanks to all in advance for helping.
