Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes I used to use the Traditional Analog EPABX. Switched to Asterisk to make use of more advanced features and the above mentioned reasons.

How was the initial setup?

I was a new user and had no experience with Asterisk, so then I came to know about The Digium Authorized Training Partner, DVCOM, and i enrolled for the Digium Asterisk Course there. And then I was able to do the Asterisk setup myself with all the configurations with a little help from them.

What about the implementation team?

DVCOM Technology, Dubai.... They were dCAP professionals, who trained me.

My annual call costs were reduced by 30% and I spent much less than other proprietary brands.

No Licensing..... That's the best part
