Development of Asterisk
Developed in 1999, the OpenSource software is the creation of Mark Spencer. Operated with Linux, the software consists of four core modules. The PBX core switching model for in- and outbound calls plus the implementation of the differing technologies from VoIP to hardware. Voice channels and various applications are managed by the Schedule and I/O Manager. Phone ringing or call forwarding functions are controlled using the Application Manager Module.
In addition, Asterisk controls all protocols such as ISDN, SIP, GSM or IACX2. The OpenSource software offers a massive range of functions accross all protocols and is therefore a highly flexible future proof solution for nearly every telephony infrastructure. A particular strength of Asterisk systems is that VoIP endpoints can be connected without requiring specialised hardware. pascom’s specifically developed admininstrations User Interface, which is based on Asterisk, leaves nothing to be desired.
