Asterisk Presentation and Calculator

Yesterday afternoon, I had the privilege of speaking to a group of friends and colleagues about Asterisk. As promised, Here are my slides

Also, I created a “quick and dirty” spreadsheet to help you estimate what it might cost to implement Asterisk in your organization. By no means would I urge you to use this if you’re preparing a budget request, but it should be fairly safe if you assume a +/- 5% margin. For those who saw it yesterday at First Baptist Atlanta, I took the time to refine it a little more. I inserted a few IF statements to automatically add the echo-cancellation costs when you enter a number larger than zero for the number of T1 ports or analog ports.
