Please see pricing at the bottom of this document.
All my VoIP Solutions use a combination of Open Source (Asterisk/FreePBX) and proprietary hardware using open standards (SIP)
I use a small amount of switches,routers, and IP phones. These are products that I have tested in the past couple of years and know that they are reliable. They are not the cheapest hardware (no Dlink's) but they are also not the most expensive. It is possible to get decent priced hardware to work with VoIP.
Asterisk PBX Setup/Install
I will recommend specific hardware depending on your needs and budget. Once you purchase this hardware I will configure with standard features. This includes basic extensions,IVR,voicemail,etc. I will provide you with a list of features that will be configured. If you do not want to purchase hardware yourself I can refer you to one of the partners I deal with. I will still do the installation but your options on hardware become more limited. You will be quoted for labor.
Asterisk Fine Tuning and Trouble Shooting
Asterisk Installations have become very easy with distros like trixbox and Elastix. Unfortunately many companies became involved in technologies they knew very little about. There are many improperly configured Asterisk systems. This includes things like bad sound quality, echo, dropped calls, and various other issues. I will help your figure out what is causing these problems. Asterisk is not the problem - who ever did the installation did not configure things properly or did not use hardware that works well together. A great amount of work I do is replacing these systems!
