I don't care for FreePBX. I think it makes certain hard tasks easy, but
then makes tasks hard which were easy in vanilla Asterisk.
The provisioning plugin is really nice as long as your phones are
Maybe the simplest thing would be one of those cloud based systems where
they do everything for you. You'll pay something recurring per phone,
but all the hard parts are someone else's problem. You'd have no
problem being up in 2 days, let alone 2 weeks.
Second simplest is configure the phones individually with their web page
(or whatever --I haven't used unifi phones) and buy an appliance with
some tech support included. As an example, Adtran Total Access 904 can
be a SIP server for your VoIP extensions, and supports SIP, analog, or
T1/PRI for your incoming lines. There are certainly Asterisk appliances
as well. I think you'll also find that most PBX vendors support VoIP
now...they'd be stupid not to right? You might pay for support, or
maybe you'll get some post sale support for free, but either way
somebody helps you with anything you're stuck on.
Third simplest is PBX in a Flash or similar Asterisk+FreePBX
distribution. You'll have the least capital invested, and the most
Least simple: Vanilla Asterisk isn't so hard once you get some practice
with it and as long as you have time to learn and experiment.

Subject: Re: [AFMUG] Best BPX to work with Unifi Phones
Simple? VoIP is not simple. FreePBX is as simple as it gets, and it's
only simple because it is limiting.
For provisioning you will need a tftp server, the ability to set DHCP
options, and a basic grasp of XML.
