I’'m after being able to make phone calls from spark as well as voip calls from Spark.
A bit about the setup we have…
Openfire server (no hardware changes possible as its off site)
Everyone decentralised - i.e. no integrated office with a phone exchange etc. We use BT / Telewest etc. standard lines.
Standard modems in the PCs I want to use for landline calls
I asked the question on the Google summer of code announcement (http://www.igniterealtime.org/blog/2007/03/21/google-summer-of-code-2007/#commen ts) and it seems like its possible with the enterprise edition so moved in here rather than creating a chat room on the announcements page!
Since thats currently $15 a year for 25 user minimum (so only $375 all in per 12 months / £200) and it appears that it can do it from Greg’‘s comments on the announcement, I’'m looking at this as an option.
However, when I read up about the comms it seems it needs an exchange capable of this, rather than using a computers internal modem over standard phone lines? Have I misunderstood or is this possible?
I know less than nothing about phone lines so apologise if this is a daft question…
Also, can the enterprise edition be downgraded later without loss of data etc. after the trial?
