I want to bring a T1 digital voice into my home with about 24 lines on it. I have cable (5mbs) already. And I will be getting a dedicated server with Red Hat to install Asterisk.
What I want for Asterisk to do is dial out to a number, put them on hold, dial out another number and ask them to select 1 to connect, then Asterisk would connect the two parties together and make a record of the call after the call ends. It will also need to have the ability to cut off, interupt, the call at a certain duration time.
So, what cards and other hardware would I need for the T1 connection? Bellsouth said I would need a PRI enabler and T1 card. What do you suggest? A server, these two cards, and then I’ll be in business??
Thank you for any help.
