Building a Standalone Softmodem Enabled PABX
Inspired by the article ‘Build your own PABX and Modem Emulator’ by HereBeDragons, this project aims to build on top of that work and create an Asterisk (v18) PABX on a Raspberry Pi with two local extensions and two external connections to the Telstar Viewdata system. The idea is that I can connect a Prestel or Minitel terminal or an 1980s computer with modem, to the Telstar viewdata system.
