May 16th 2015 - Voip PBX Workshop

Location: Room NW041 in The Newton Building, Avenue Campus, University Of Northampton, NN2 6JD

Presenter: John Blackburn




Arrive at 10:00am for a 10:30am start. Finish 16:00 approx



Follow up to successful VOIP presentation, take part in a workshop where we form into small workgroups to:

  • Install and configure a FreePBX (Asterisk) VOIP PBX to a Raspberry PI.
  • Install a physical VOIP phone and a lap top soft phone to connect to the PBX.
  • Form VOIP trunks to interconnect to other PI PBXs and make routed calls.
  • Configure a trunk to an external VOIP provider and make external calls.
  • If time allows, configure phone services and directories.



There will be an initial presentation followed by the workshop tasks where you can work your way step by step to a functioning private telephone network. 

There will be advice and help throughout.

If possible, bring a laptop - the workshop will form attendees into 5 workgroups each working on their own small PBX configured using a laptop. It is envisaged that there will be up to 5 attendees in each workgroup.
