i setup a test setup of asterisk using a regular computer, and x100 card($9). i would like to get a full voip setup going across my moderatly sized network, i currently have a single data t1. for supplying voice to my network i am thinking of either:
- voice t1(24 channels, i dont know cost, maybe around ~600?)
- VoIP trunk lines(another t1+13voip lines, $600/m)
i dont know which is better.
what kindof laws is there for voip providers in the US, i assume i need e911, can the voIP trunk lines do this?, can the t1?
is there any other legal obligations?
How would i route phone numbers to customers(currently i only know extensions on asterisk)?
and finally, for a server i already have a dual athlon mp 2200+ system with 1gb ecc pc2100, i was reading
the part about the ram, 2gb, 1gb necessary if restarted every week, does asterisk really need to be restarted often?
thanks, i hope this isnt too many questions in one post.
