IP PBX

I have been using my Vonage account for a long time now. In the office we wanted to figure out a way to use Vonage and avoid setting up phone systems so that we can be flexible as we grow the business and move into different space down the road. So the good thing about Vonage is that it just plugged into our router and then into a phone and a fax. Sweet. No PBX, no phone company etc. Change the message and away we go.

Well not so fast. What if you want call routing, or IVR, or conference calling? Ok. so here Vonage falls down. Its great when I don't answer at my office that it forwards to my cell phone, but what about everyone else in the office. So I called a couple of friends and have been doing some research. It seems to me that we are going to give asterix a try.

If anyone has experience with anything else - shoot me an email.
