I’ve been wading through tons of sites/ info on configuring up to 8-wireless extensions with Asterisk, yet there’s absolutely no mention of how this is accomplished. I’m running a Sipura SPA 3000 btw…
So.. If I purchase a 5-phone Vtech system, then what? I guess my question is, how exactly do you setup multiple ‘private’ wireless extensions? How does the SPA and Asterisk identify their unique wireless handsets?
Or Maybe I have this all wrong. Perhaps the idea of buying 5 additional wireless extensions, is so 5-phones will ring simultaneously? I’m not looking for a comprehensive explanation –just a basic idea of how the unique extensions are configured on each wireless handset.
I’m thinking you’d need to get the SPA 3000 to somehow acknowledge the additional wireless handsets. Btw.. I’ve spent time on the Asterisk forums elsewhere, but… They are 90% questions and 10% answers, which is not terribly useful if you’re planning on doing anything beyond the likes of a pet project. Hopefully, some good folks out hear can shine some light on this one.
Ooops... I should be clear. I'm speaking of the 5.8 Ghz analog handsets --not wireless IP phones. Here's one example here:
