I have an intranet network in my building, and i was thinking to use this network to call each other, instead of calling using the normal phone line and pay a lot of money.

Is it possible to put a phone directly on a internet cable and call each other through? or there a better solution?

please advice, because i just have the idea and i know nothing about how to do it.

without using the computer?! – user8228 Dec 6 '09 at 16:17
yes, just the phone, because if we will use computers, so no need to phones we can use skype or any voice chat application. – Amr Elgarhy Dec 6 '09 at 22:52

Yes, easily possible...

You just need VOIP based phones that can either use your router and directly link to a third party sip provider, or roll out your own PBX (such as Trixbox) however, that would require a computer to be on 24x7
