Extend the Power of Asterisk WebRTC with Respoke

Simplify Your Communications with Asterisk and Respoke

WebRTC is a technology that adds real-time communications to the most widely used web browsers, turning them into powerful Unified Communications clients. With WebRTC, browsers can support world-class live audio, video, screen sharing and real-time data capabilities without the need to download a plugin or install a separate application. Discover how Asterisk and Respoke utilize this new technology, making it easy to add web and mobile collaboration to your business communications solution.

Asterisk, the world's most widely used open source telephony software, is also the first to feature WebRTC, having supported a basic audio-only implementation of the technology since 2012 and Asterisk version 11. With a desire to do more to push the technology forward, Digium, the sponsor and maintainer of the Asterisk project, launched a new WebRTC platform as a service (PaaS) called Respoke earlier this year. Respoke allows web and mobile developers to easily add live communications features to the applications they create by providing open source client libraries and SDKs that offer a simple, intuitive interface for enabling WebRTC within client applications.

The Respoke back-end platform manages the live communications and lets developers focus their efforts on user experience and business logic. Just as Asterisk opened up telecommunications features to Linux developers and systems administrators, Respoke opens up real-time web communications to the growing community of web and mobile developers.

But if Asterisk and Respoke are each great on their own, they're even more powerful together. Join us for a one hour webinar that covers the basics of web communications,  integrating web elements into your Asterisk communications system, and the wide variety of use cases and projects that are enhanced with Asterisk and Respoke.

This webinar provides answers to the following questions:

  • What is web communications and how will it improve my business?
  • How does Asterisk support web communications?
  • What is Respoke?
  • How do Asterisk and Respoke work together
  • How do I get started with Asterisk + Respoke?


Register now and discover how Asterisk and Respoke can make your web communications easy and awesome.

Has Your Business Hit a Wall? Overcoming Five (and a half) Obstacles Standing Between Your SMB and Growth

Let's overcome your growth challenges.

In today’s incredibly intense business environment, companies that don’t have growth in mind eventually get swallowed up by changing market forces like evolving customer demand, increasing operational costs, and new competitors, just to name a few. Though growth in some fashion is what companies are striving for, even the best-run companies with the most sought after products, run into walls: growth slows down, traffic dries up, and worry begins to build.

So how do businesses avoid these slowdowns? How do they keep the momentum of significant growth going and take their companies to the next level?

One major step towards business growth is to shore up company communications - and this is accomplished through adopting and embracing Unified Communications (UC). UC provides the tools and features that your company needs to not only handle current challenges, but fuel and sustain new growth for your organization.

Join Digium’s Brian Ferguson for our webinar, Has Your Business Hit a Wall? Overcoming Five (and a half) Obstacles Between Your SMB and Growth, as he breaks down the major obstacles preventing companies from achieving the next level of success.

In this webinar you’ll learn to avoid:

  • Getting stuck in a stalling routine
  • Not having a plan for growth
  • Losing touch with your customers
  • Crippling upfront and ongoing costs
  • And much more!

Watch now and see how your company can avoid these major pitfalls.

Protecting Your Business with UC: Don't let the wrong vendor sink your game.

Overcoming the Madness: Choosing the Best Vendor for Your Business Communications

As a small or mid-size business, you always have to be at the top of your game - and your business communications solution is a key component to a consistent, winning strategy. Whether replacing a legacy system or installing a brand new phone system, making the right choice helps ensure your company will “survive and advance” within your industry’s competitive landscape. And it starts by adding the best UC vendor to your team.

There are many choices when it comes to selecting a Unified Communications (UC) vendor. Beyond comparing a cloud-based phone system to an on-premises system, vendor solutions can have widely varying feature sets, pricing models, and support structures. Complex licensing, expensive add-on feature costs, and lack of flexibility to scale with your business growth can all drastically influence final cost of ownership and ROI. Your company must be vigilant and thorough in its decision process to ensure that it meets the current and future needs of your organization.

If you are currently considering a new business phone system, or are just starting to evaluate what it takes to deploy a UC solution, you need to attend this informative webinar, Protecting Your Business with UC: Don’t Let the Wrong Vendor Sink Your Game. Digium’s VoIP expert, Brian Ferguson, will coach you through the process of evaluating vendors and choosing the right phone system.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • Business mobility
  • Benefits of SIP trunking
  • Hosted and on-premises deployment options
  • UC pricing models
  • Comparing features and vendors - and much, much more!

Watch now and let us help you avoid the common mistakes when evaluating a modern UC phone system.

Part One: An Asterisk Retrospective - Disrupting the Telecom Industry

Understanding the Asterisk Open Source Evolution

The search to find the right business communications solution can be a formidable challenge. Commonly called a PBX, IP PBX, or Unified Communications (UC) platform, there is no shortage of systems or vendors. Gone are the days where the only communications options were a handful of large companies offering expensive proprietary platforms with limited features. Thanks in part to a communications revolution launched in 1999, with the introduction of the Asterisk communications framework, the telephony industry is full of choices and continues to develop. Join us for a closer look at the history of Asterisk and its impact on business communications.  

Originally written in 1999 by Mark Spencer, CTO of Digium, Asterisk is an open source framework for building communications applications. Asterisk turns an ordinary computer into a communications server and powers IP PBX systems, VoIP gateways, conference servers and other custom solutions. It is used by small businesses, large businesses, call centers, carriers and government agencies, worldwide.

In the first of a series of four webinars, we will explore the role of Asterisk in the telephony industry, starting from the creation of the open source platform to the continued development and maintenance of the project by Digium. Asterisk has evolved from a simple idea to meet Mark’s need for an affordable PBX into the world’s leading open source communications platform used to build a variety of business applications. Today, millions of businesses in 170 countries use Asterisk, or a turnkey product based on Asterisk, to solve many key business communications challenges.

In this first webinar you will learn:

  • What is Asterisk?
  • Why was Asterisk created?
  • The evolution of Asterisk
  • Where Asterisk fits in today’s business communications needs

And, you’ll get a sneak peek at the next webinar in this series that provides insights and resources on how to get started with building an Asterisk solution. Register now!

What's Your UC Question?

Do you have questions about Unified Communications?

Your phone system is a critical tool in maintaining successful communications with customers, vendors and employees. Increasingly, the advanced features of a Unified Communications (UC) solution have been touted as must-have functionality for smart business communications. From IT directors and CEOs to office managers and system administrators, we understand that you may have uncertainties about UC and how to best integrate it into your organization.

Do any of these questions sound familiar?

  • While features like mobility, collaboration and advanced call control are giving businesses more efficient and connected workforces, how easy is it to actually roll out these options?
  • Can I really afford all the “business-critical” features that make UC most worthwhile?
  • Do I need a full-time, in-house IT team to maintain an advanced UC system?
  • Does UC cut down the time and cost associated with managing my phone system?

Sure, UC can improve your company communications overnight, but change is scary. We’re here to take the fear and uncertainty out of UC by answering your questions.
