Is it possible to install Asterisk on a remote server and retain full integration with LMCE, or is Asterisk wrapped up to integrate on a local install only? I ask because I'd prefer to run Asterisk out of a secure data center so I can get 5 9's on my phone service. Also, I think its a great idea to monitor the home core server from an outside source, and then if tampering is detected (ie, the internet goes down, or the power, etc), the remote Asterisk can send out an automated response. I realize some of these services are already available vis-a-vi dnsmadeeasy.com, but I think Asterisk is probably the most mission critical asset in the install.
I'm welcome to any ideas or suggestions.
Yes you could have an Asterisk box remotely located and do what posde suggests. If your not interested in using on Media Director softphones and other Media Director telephony integration then that doesnt pose too many issues. In Dianemo we don't configure systems to use any of the Media Director telephony features as we've found that end customers prefer to use real phones to make and receive calls ie physical SIP phones or SIP clients on a SmartPhone etc.
All the best
