A few members had been interested in playing with VOIP/SIP things, mostly involving connecting the space phone line to the internet and doing voice menus, sip accounts for members, group chat, joining the Hackerspaces Call in, getting linked up to other hackspaces, etc.
- Internal dialing between floors (really easy rather than going back and forth back and forth to talk with someone / do something)
- External calls get prompts for general and travel information.
Doorbell-style ringtone on phone rings when back-gate visitors call ('doorbell ringer' zombie-phone is located above Electronics lab)
Conference room function (mainly extension 4225)
- Weather-Resistant Outdoor Phones - GAI-Tronics Titan for Rail and Commander User and Installation Guide
Back Door phone now with Robonaut integration - IRC users informed when a delivery call is made and also when not answered.
- Toll-Free Outgoing dialing (0800 style numbers) / Banned dialing for others
- DUE TO DUMB CALLERS DIALING FOR LENNY WHEN THEY ABSOLULUTELY SHOULDN'T HAVE AND STILL COMPLAINING ABOUT IT, WE HAD TO REMOVE THE LENNY FUNCTIONALITY. RIP LENNY.
- Easy networking to other Hackspaces
- Dialing of Emergency numbers (101/111/112/999) (Please be aware that in the event of a power cut, hardware issue etc the phones will not work. Please use a mobile, or the payphone situated on High Road)
PABX System details:
- System Platform: Hosted on Bell a managed Virtual Machine running on Landin with incoming calls.
- Phones are Cisco 7970G SIP handsets running G722 and the back door phone is a surplus analogue GAI-TRONICS Titan for Rail outdoor linesman phone and GAI-Tronics Commander both attached to a single Cisco ATA186 being powered over PoE using an Avaya 1603 700415607 PoE power splitter/injector.
- OS: Linux with tftpd and httpd service enabled for phones that need to boot and load config files over tftp, LHS logo screen graphics, etc.
- PHONE SW: Asterisk 13.14.1 - no longer needing DAHDI as we've stopped using the TDM400 Digium FXO ports.
- EXTERNAL VOICE GENERATION: Voice prompt files generated using AWS Polly text to speech API.
- CONFIG NOTE: Custom configs/scripts to be shared confidentially as they contain passwords.
/etc/asterisk - Asterisk dialplan rules and configs /var/spool/asterisk - Voicemails / CDR log storage /srv/tftp - Phone firmware, ringtones, XML configs /usr/share/asterisk/sounds/lhs - LHS prompts/buildscripts)
We should document the various provisioning files required for our collection of phones and ensure they're backed up somewhere.
To assist, I've upgraded two of the phones to the latest firmware and captured what files they requested from the TFTP server:

Infrastructure needs/Future uses:
- Mini-XML applications for the phones (weather, IRC info, relevant member info)
- Enable emergency all-page public address functionality
- Connect with other Hackspaces
Please use it, play with it, and hack on it to make it better!
