Short overview

Overview of market I think will help you to decide which vendor and hardware/software solution is the best for VoIP network building. On market are well known several open source solutions: Asterisk (http://www.asterisk.org) and FreeSwitch (http://www.freeswitch.org). Asterisk is the oldest and the reach in functionality VoIP server. It community is very strong and releases are stable. In compare to FreeSwitch, Asterisk have several architecture issues that make many people thinking about better solution. And FreeSwitch catch those people. FreeSwitch is completely rewritten VoIP server, but it uses Asterisk HOWTO's as basis. That is why both solutions mostly have the same functionality, number of features and both are very stable.

Commercial solutions are easy to find by Google or any other search engine. But they in most cases become choice number three after trying to implement VoIP network on Asterisk or FreeSwitch.

You can reserve for VoIP server ordinal desktop computer, of course keep in mind that server should work 24/7, so you must properly choose hardware and test server stability.

FreeSwitch is working mostly on any OS, that is why you can choose own OS according to your needs, licenses and requirements. Installation Guide of FreeSwitch is well written and highly descriptive, by following steps in it you can setup server in several minutes.

All small and large business offices trying to build something shown on image upper and with FreeSwitch is quite easy to implement. All you have to do is properly read documentation provided with it. FreeSwitch combining land lines and GSM gateways which make possible to optimize outgoing phone traffic. FreeSwitch will select for you best call plan with minimal payment and of course if it possible will route call to VoIP network.

After building internal VoIP network is time to expand own possibilities and create connection with external VoIP server, also known, as VoIP-proxy. That will give you possibility to optimize not only outgoing calls. Incoming calls can be optimized too. Expand the view in your mind, several offices with the same infrastructure with properly configured VoIP proxies can communicate to each other over VoIP. And that means that we economy on each done call.
