Heyall,

New here and have joined for a number of reasons.... reasons=projects. :) One of these projects is the new OBi110 that i have just received from Amazon. Pretty cheap and have been interested in setting up my own PBX at home for a while now...just never really had the opportunity, time, or found the right resources to help me set it up.

Anyway i've got this OBi110 now and it seems really straight forward to use BUT it is really well set up for the US user. It looks like it hasn't really had any impact yet in NZ. SO i was wondering if anyone out there has any knowledge about basic PBX setup for NZ, what is a good VoIP provider to go for, and if there has been any users having a play with the OBi110?

I haven't played with one but know people who have. Performance wise they're not a bad box, but they're certainly not a PBX (if that's what you're thinking they can replace). The only thing that differentiates them from other hardware such as Linksys 3102's is the ability to connect a softphone to the ATA to make outbound calls, something that may be useful, but having to route call via home router introduces a lot of latency into calls.

Very true about the Latency, i grabbed this box more as an introduction to the ways of the PBX....something i still wish to learn about. I'll read through your blog this evening.

CHeers :)

It's not a PBX as such, merely a VoIP adapter (ATA)
