Overview of this book

TrixBox is a telephone system based on the popular open source Asterisk PBX (Private Branch eXchange) Software. TrixBox allows an individual or organization to setup a telephone system with traditional telephone networks as well as Internet based telephony or VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). SugarCRM can be integrated with Asterisk, and is bundled with Trixbox offering real power and flexibility. The book begins by introducing telephony concepts before detailing how to plan a telephone system and moving on to the installation, configuration, and management of a feature packed PBX. This book is rich with practical examples and tools. It provides examples of well laid out telephone systems with accompanying spreadsheets to aid the reader in building stable telephony infrastructure.

Direct Inward System Access is used to provide access to "dial tone" from a call that originates outside the phone system. For a sales person that needs to place a sales call but doesn't want the caller-id of his/her cell phone to be displayed, the salesperson can call into the phone system, enter a code, and be dropped to a dial tone where the caller can dial out to any allowable phone number. Since the call was actually placed via the phone system, additional functionality like transferring the call to another extension is possible as the phone system is sitting between the caller and the person that was called.
