I don't know if that falls into what you are looking for.
I have a asterisk server running at home and in the office. Localy I 
have SIP phones (CISCO 7XXX) with that.

When I am on the road I use zoiper (free as in beer) with the iax 
protocol. This way you have less issues with NAT. 

This works even over 3G Wireless network.
