Hello Edward,


Asterisk is open source software that enables a computer to operate as a voice communications server that
can be used in a wide range of telephony roles, from a traditional PBX to running a call centre.

The core Asterisk services are configured and controlled by editing a set of configuration files.
One of these files contains the dial plan and controls the operational flow of Asterisk.
A native scripting language is used to define the elements of process control.


Thanks.

Hi,

Moreover Asterisk runs on Linux, BSD, Windows (emulated) and OS X and provides all of the features you would expect from a PBX and more.
Asterisk does voice over IP in four protocols, and can interoperate with almost all standards-based telephony equipment using relatively inexpensive hardware.

Thanks

hello

Asterisk is like a box of Legos for people who want to create communications applications. It includes all the building blocks needed to create a PBX, an IVR system, a conference bridge and virtually any other communications app you can imagine.


Thanks

sir,

Asterisk is a software implementation of a telephone private branch exchange (PBX);  it allows attached telephones to make calls to one another, and to connect to other telephone services, such as the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services. Its name comes from the asterisk symbol, *.

The Asterisk software includes many features available in proprietary PBX systems: voice mail, conference calling, interactive voice response (phone menus), and automatic call distribution. Users can create new functionality by writing dial plan scripts in several of Asterisk's own extensions languages, by adding custom loadable modules written in C, or by implementing Asterisk Gateway Interface (AGI) programs using any programming language capable of communicating via the standard streams system (stdin and stdout) or by network TCP sockets.

Asterisk-based telephony solutions offer a rich and flexible feature set. Asterisk offers both classical PBX functionality and advanced features, and interoperates with traditional standards-based telephony systems and Voice over IP systems. Asterisk offers the advanced features that are often associated with large, high end (and high cost) proprietary PBXs.  The list below includes a sample of the features available in Asterisk.

hi,

When capitalized as , an open source PBX daemon that runs on Linux. Asterisk is a complete PBX contained within software and can interoperate with almost all standards-based telephony equipment using comparatively inexpensive hardware. Asterisk supports a wide range of TDM protocols for the handling and transmission of voice over traditional telephony interfaces and also supports US and European standard signalling types used in standard business phone systems

Thanks
