Today’s experiment in Voice Over IP is as follows: I’m running the free X-Lite software telephone on my Apple iBook here at Yankee in New Hampshire. X-Lite is configured to register with my Asterisk PBX back in the office in Charlottetown.
The end result is that when callers “press 1 for Peter” when calling the office, the calls get routed to my laptop.
Conversely, I have a Charlottetown dial tone here when I need it.
I just got off the phone with Johnny, then Catherine. Quality appears to be fair to poor — possibly because I’m just using the iBook’s built-in microphone. I’m going to do some twiddling.
