For those of you turned away by the Darkness (and that may be all of
us...), here are a few links that you might have found interesting:
Asterisk is an Open Source PBX that is developed on Linux and runs on an
ordinary PC. It's totally GPL'ed and it does VoIP right out of the box -
no need to add anything.
Asterisk is developed and maintained (and supported) by some great folks
The Asterisk PBX does a lot more than VoIP. It also has built-in
Voicemail and the ability to handle standard analog phones as well as a
variety of standard PBX components. It comes with programmable
AutoAttendent, ACD, call groups, programmable call flow, a web-portal
for accessing Voicemail and phone features, etc...
There is also a very well organized user community that supports
Asterisk. The wiki for the group is here:
I also want to thank FeatureTel for sponsoring tonights Pizza
FeatureTel provides businesses with phone service using a Hybrid version
of VoIP called Hosted Telephony, in which the customers talk to
FeaturTel's switches using VoIP transmitted over a private data line
(that is also used for intenet access). FeatureTel's switches are then
connected directly to the Publicly Switched Telephone Network.
Dress warm tonight!
