on the cheap side I believe there is a solution using a Linksys NSLU2

For about $1k you can get a pre-installed Asterisk voip pbx at "the voip
They call it a VS-1. You upgrade by swapping out a CF card.
Setup is performed by pointing a browser to the pbx and making changes
using html pages .
We took a look at this at the work place about a year ago.
The cost includes about 10 hours of support for setup.
Of course if money is no object then try the cisco solution (about $10-15K).
