Whenever I call someone using my workplace's Asterisk VOIP server there's a 2-3 second delay before I can hear them so I always miss them saying "hello". This happens with any SIP client running on windows, Mac, or linux. After that the call goes fine. It only happens for outgoing calls - the audio for incoming calls is fine.
Is this likely to be something broken on our work server or is it something most or all Asterisk users have to put up with?
