The Asterisk Free Software Telephone System

Please join us Thursday October 23 for a demonstration and overview of
Asterisk, a Free Software implementation of a telephone switch.

What is a switch? Well, it's the essential core of a phone company.
It's also what lets you dial 42 on your phone at work and be connected to
the person who knows everything. Wait, that's you?

Paul Charles Leddy will be guiding us through a technical overview of how
Asterisk works, rather than an overview of how to use it. This talk will
be of interest to anyone interested in how a PBX works, as well as those
interested in building their own Asterisk PBX.

We'll start with a look at the various things Asterisk does, and work our
way through setting up extensions, VoIP, SIP, IAX, and call routing.

* Asterisk Web Site

* Alex Pilosov's Asterisk presentation in 2003
