Asterisk, a linux-based Open Source PBX and IVR, enables individuals and organizations an unprecedented amount of power, freedom and cost savings over traditional telephony solutions. Asterisk, distributed under the GNU GPL, is a full-featured phone system that provides caller id, voicemail, event notification, call queuing, multiple person conferencing, and other advanced management features. Asterisk supports analog services (FXO, FXS, T1, E1, PRI) and Voice-Over-IP technologies (IAX, SIP, H.323).
This presentation will provide an introduction to Asterisk and will include a discussion of the basic configuration files and how to get set up very quickly.
