ELUG member Adil Kodian presented on "Real-world implementation of Asterisk".
Voiceover IP is slated to become the next killer application of theInternet. Asterisk, the best open source PBX available today, is amechanism to implement Voice over IP. The quality and level of Asterisktechnology today can compete very well with the best that brand-namecompetitors like Cisco or Avaya have to offer. At the same time thetotal cost of ownership of Asterisk is much lower than a corresponding'branded' solution.
In this talk we will show you a real live implementation ofthe Asterisk PBX at a large and distributed construction companylocated in the same building. Topics for discussion - voip networkarchitecture, causes and solutions for echo on voip calls, calldistortion, PSTN integration, distributed load balancing, very largescale management, SIP phones, quality analysis, T1 interface cards etc.
We will also show you an architecture for a globallydistributed (3 continents) Asterisk based VoIP system we are currentlyin the process of implementing for a client.
As a bonus forattending this session, we will provide free access to our demoAsterisk based IAX server (to be activated mid July).
Danny Bowman informed us of his ongoing school Science Fair project.
The February meeting is about Multimedia on Linux, and is to be presented by Maurice Hilarius and/or Mark Lane of Hard Data Ltd. Specific contents beyond that could be MythTV, Asterisk, VoIP, miscellaneous telephony stuff, and Chromium). MythTV I guess turns your PC into a TV recorder. Asterisk is a PBX application. Chromium is some kind of game (I think). Even if the talk doesn't have quite as much content as you might hope in some particular area of multimedia, bring your questions! Especially if they involve one of the formal subtopics. —Gord
