We've been providing Hutterite colonies with phone systems for a couple years now and decided it was time to start providing a How-to manual.
Hutterite colonies are different from our normal urban phone system installs in that the colonies themselves do most of the work. As such they need a deeper understanding of the technology, design and implementation of the system then do most of our other customers.
There are 8 major components to Colony phone systems which are common to most other larger commercial installs as well:
- Internet Connection
- SIP base Phone Company
- Point to Point wireless network to connect buildings
- Internal Building Wiring to connect phones
- Internet Security Gateway (aka Firewall or Router)
- Phone System Server
