Default Unusual VoIP application;!..


Wonder if anyone would care to comment on this possible setup..

We need to have a central control point that can use either an analogue
phone with a VoIP adapter or a standalone VoIP fone, that can when the
handset is picked up - or a preset number button is pushed on that,
dial/call up to Four distant stations all on the same LAN or VPN for
that matter.

The unit will call all 4 distant locations where at each point an ATA
adapter or possibly standalone VoIP fone will auto answer the incoming
call. The auto answer will be, in the case of an ATA be done via an
external gubbins which will just detect the ringing volts and place a
hold on the line.. Unless there is an ATA or VoIP fone that will auto
answer?.

It would be useful to have more than the one, perhaps up to Three phones
at this central point that can all do that.

A normal phone call can then take place between the control point and
each outstation, there is no particular requirement for each outstation
to be able to talk to each other, just the central control station will
do. If each station can talk to the other this does not matter as such.

At each outstation is there anyway of getting the same ATA when the
attached phone is "picked up" or more like the line is looped, of that
auto dialling the central station control point and that ringing in the
normal fashion. Either as above the one phone or more say up to three?.

There is no need whatever for the system to be connected to the PSTN at
all, its all going to be on the same LAN 'tho part of that will be via a
VPN...

Bit odd but anything like this can be done using freely available
hardware like standard VoIP ATA or gateway units or would it require
something akin to a VoIP PABX either hardware or PC based such as
Asterix?..

I suppose in a way its effectively an internal conference call..



TIA...

A small asterisk server will do this in conjunction with VoIP phones which
can auto-dial (batphone mode), and auto-answer and go into speaker-phone
mode (with the right SIP header sent to them). At the cheap-end,
Grandstream BT200s can do this. I use the auto-answer functions in the phones
to implment a paging system (one way audio), or intercom with 2-way audio.

I don't know about making an ATA auto-answer an analogue phone though, but
there are ATAs that will auto-dial a number when the handset is lifted...

If you're not up to making this yourself, drop me an email for a quote
- this functionality is all built in to my systems as standard. (So it
can't be that unusual as I've been asked for it in the past!)
