I'm trying to setup an IVR or to be more specific an automated attendant using Asterisk. I don't want anything fancy besides the simple automated menu system, and instead of dialing an extension (for now) just ring the same phone line (POTS) if pressed 1 or play a recording if pressed 2. The server running Asterisk & IVR will be in a remote location from the actual land-line.
Goal: Customer calls the land-line. Remote server answers the call and handle automated menu system. Based on selection, respond: (pressed 1) ring the same land-line, (pressed 2) play recording.
Here are my questions:
- Is this setup doable?
- Do I need to sign up with a IAX VOIP provider? (no VOIP calls will be made/received) only normal POTS calls will be made. (possibly the land-line will be outside the US)
- What hardware do I need? Remote server side and client-wise (POTS land-line)
Any comments will be appreciate it.
