    Default Any adviced for a buisiness use VOIP ?

    Guys i have a business premeses with 1 telstra phonee line and 4 ISDN ( Digital ) lines , and a telstra fax /adsl line .
    The cost of this and the four mobiles is astronomical.

    I have spoken to a few VOIP providers who tell me I can have a "pabx" with a GSM attachment which uses the one telstra line and gives me 4 other (voip) lines for $50 month (plus Telstra line Rental) 450 free calls a month national , calls to mobile at 18 cents a min , cheap international about $1: 19 per min to the majority and calls from our fleet mobiles out thru the pabx as free and calls to our fleet mobiles free .

    Does any one who has a business using voip have cheaper hardware as the PABX is $1200, The gsm module is $1800 and the hot keyable handsets $ 200 each

    Appreciate any comments

    Cheers,

    Ramp

    Wow - not cheap.

    You could easily do it yourself for a fraction of the cost (checkout Linksys SPA9000). You might want to try - I'm sure they'll beat those prices by far ;-)

    how good are you with computers?

    Have a look at trixbox

    Ive got one setup at home and we have three seperete business's all running off it with different lines (voip/pstn), works without a hich.

    Mind you it took a fair bit of effort at the start getting it all running, but well worth it. Our phone bill has come down to about 3/10's of what it used to be.

    subject to optus fair use policy,
    which means, you only have 1500 minutes of free calls, above that, they send you a letter, saying you have gone over your limit
    go over it again, and they charge astronomically above the 1500 and then you lose your free calls

    i know, i have had a letter in the mail with optus yes time...(2700 minutes in a month)

    You could just search ebay for a VoIP ATA.
    Plug in a network cable and a phone or fax into the phone socket on it.
    Configure the ATA vai the web interface and away it goes. They can run for years - no ongoing maintenance required.
    Each ATA would want it's own SIP account with someone like Engin (or even your ISP if they offer VoIP).
    Engin is about $10 a month per line + calls
    Reality is an invention of my imagination.

    we use 2 asterisk servers 1 syd 1 on the north coast
    with 9 1300 lines and 4 pstn lines and 3 fax lines all into 2 boxes
    6 staff in melb syd and bris
    and it works sweet the rule old rule of thumb is good line speed each of our pbxservers
    has its own 8 meg adsl line
    when a call comes in it rings in three states so who ever picks it up can talk then transfer to any other extension
    and its all open source
