There is already no shortage of IP telephony blogs. Many of them are valuable and interesting. Many of them are written from the standpoint of a observer watching the facinating new devices and services which appear on the market.
My blog will take a different direction. It will be written from the standpoint of a telephony hobbyist. It will be about my attempts to use Asterisk and surplus equipment to create a telephone system for my family and friends.
I hope to cover such topics as hacking Linksys ATA’s and creating a custom Asterisk dialplan from scratch.
IP telephony has been my hobby for two years now. For a year now it is also part of my work at a small college in New England. So, I may tell about our experience intergrating Asterisk with a Nortel Meridian phone switch.
