    Looking for some PBX advice

    Hi,

    We need to connect staff in 3 or 4 offices, 2 or 3 people per office
    to a central phone system, where all the incoming lines are in 1
    office, and the operator should be able forward calls to any extension
    in any office, or the caller should be able to select a destination
    from a prompt.

    I'm thinking Astrisk..... but I've never worked with it, and teleco's
    isn't our game really. Our current Avaya switchboard doesn't have a
    VOIP module, and and it's apparently a rather expensive upgrade.

    Can anyone please give me some pointers, and possible offer some
    support when needed in the Alberton / JHB area?

    To get started, what would I need for such a setup? We all have
    Android / Blackberry handsets so I'm thinking we could use them as
    VOIP handsets as well, but I'll need a few cordless (either analogue
    or digital, please make a recommendation?) in 2 of the offices. All
    the offices have at least a 4MB ADSL line and I'l sure we can upgrade
    them all, or get extra lines if needed. the head office will have 4
    telkom lines (via ISDN). These people do travel bookings so they'll be
    on the phones a lot.


    Any recommendations, pointers, etc would be highly appreciated.

    If you need handsets - I have about 12 Snome voip phones for sale - they have been used but are in very good condition. You would then need someone to know what to do to connect them via the Asterix system
