(3 Part question)
I'm currently installing and testing an Asterisk system for my company. We're switching from Verizon Centrenet system and hosting everything on our own.
I'm still in the beginning phases and stil learning Asterisk, VoIP, and the technology.
I've been reveiwing some of the Asterisk questions posted here and got a bit confused.
1) Just to be sure, this is how my asterisk system will be setup:
Fractional T-1 Service from MCI -->> Wildcard TE110P PCI-card -->> Dell 1800 Server with CentOS 3.0 and asterisk installed -->> Dlink 24 Port Switch with VLan configured for Phones -->> Linksys SPA-941 IP phones
Is that a correct configuration?
2) Also, in terms of Voice-Mail recording, does the server need large Hard drives? will RAID configuration improve performance? ie. RAID 0 or RAID 5?
3) Lastly, is there a third-party software that i can use on the desktops to be able to listen to the Vmail directly from the PCs? More specifically, is there a way to forward vmails to the recipient's email address (we host our own Exchange server)?
Thanks in advance!
