The SPA9000 is running an embedded version of Asterisk. The latest
firmware for them supports 16 users.

I wondered if it was running Asterisk. They've made quite a nice job
of it. I installed the latest firmware but we only need 2 users.

There seems to be a huge number of appliances running embedded Linux
these days, it would be interesting to have a go at building something
like that myself. It's probably not that difficult, and you could have
quite a nice little special purpose PC. Dunno where I'd find the time
though..

The expense come with the Asterisk when you add trunks to it (analog
or ISDN) unless they are SIP trunks..
