I worked with trixbox in the past and it's really nice. There is a free version (trixbox ce) and it's based on asterisk so highly customisable.

It's also compatible with a lot of FXO / FXS / T1 card if needed.

If you're looking for solution to deploy on your own, asterisk@home/trixbox and so are really good solutions, to run on a dedicated box. But is requires some knowledge of PBX technologies to configure it.

If you're looking for hosted solution turn to services such as fonality.

Hope this help
