Getting Started with the Asterisk Open Source Telephony Platform
There are endless choices for communications products on the market, and the task of finding the right solution can take you on a journey of complex pricing tiers and feature set comparisons. Asterisk, the free open source solution, could be the answer your organization’s needs. But you still need to understand which option is right for you - building from scratch with Asterisk source code, or using a pre-packaged Asterisk-based solution with a GUI (graphical user interface).
Join Digium, sponsor and maintainer of the Asterisk Open Source project, for our latest webinar, Discover the Power of Asterisk. David Duffett, Worldwide Community Director for the Asterisk project, will detail options for building solutions using raw Asterisk and the command line interface (CLI) or using a version with a built-in graphical user interface (GUI).
He will also discuss the basics of open source telephony and the underlying Asterisk architecture, and review the best practices on how to properly structure Asterisk.
