I am new to VOIP and I am starting at the machine after a long day reading about DID’s, channels, inbound, outbound and incoming calls and at this point, it seems like I’ve learned nothing at all. I got myself a simple pc, plugged it to the network, downloaded Asterix Now and I assumes I am ready to go. Or so I thought.
I would appreciate any help you can offer with that regards.
The plan is:
- I have 2 people is the Philippines working with me. 2 in India, 3 in the UK and 5 in the US. All of us are working from home.
- Myself and another guy have an IP Phone (Snom 360) and we want to be able to communicate with each other (even a conference between some of us) and allow everyone to call outside from the soft-phone to a PSTN and Mobile numbers in the US and the UK to speak to our clients etc.
How do you envisage the system to look like?
How many DID’s we actually need? There would not be more that 3 people calling outside at the same time. (However we want to be able to have a conference of 8 people at a time internality)
Do we need to register a DID per country? The two people in the Philippines will call only the US and UK and would have a soft-phone that is really an extension.
I hope this make sense…
