How to make an automated call system with Asterisk


I have to set up automated calling systems. let me to explain my requirement.

  1. I have a telephone line and pc with Asterisk.
  2. I have a mysql data base with caller name , caller name, phone number

So what I need to do, I need to make calls sequentially by using phone numbers which are stored in my mysql database.

How can I do that and how can I write a dialplan for this case.

Please help me. I am very new for the Asterisk platform

For your dialplan you'd have to describe better what the dialplan should do - play sound files, present a menu with different options, interact with other systems, etc.

For initiating the outbound calls, have a look at call files, they're easy to create form a database. You'd want to create them in batches and not all at once not to overload your Asterisk.
