Been tasked with looking into implementing an internal VOIP phone system to link up some buildings that don't have phone lines installed.
Have been looking at things like 3CX and AsteriskNow (with Freepbx).
Have to say that I really do like the look of 3CX; windows based, really easy to setup and configure but its going to cost if we want to have more than 4 people talking at one. Also been told there is no money.
So, looking at AsteriskNOW, and its stretching my Linux knowledge abit but I'm getting there and quite pleased that I've got a basic system up and running.
Today I took delivery of two Grandstream GXP-1200 IP Phones that I got cheap of eBay and got them configured to work. Again, it's all very basic at the moment but I'm taking great joy in wandering around the school, plugging in the phone and calling my tech back in the office; People are looking at me as if I'm bonkers because at the end of the day to them its just a 'phone', but only use techs can get excited about how it works rather than it just 'working'.
