With nearly two million downloads per year, millions of deployments and a community of more than 80,000 members, the acceptance and growth of Asterisk has spawned an ecosystem spanning more than 170 countries. AstriCon gives all members of the Asterisk Community - from telephony enthusiasts to businesses - a forum to learn about the technology. AstriCon attendees can expect to gain a wealth of information about everything Asterisk. From solution scaling and resilience all the way to selling into the government, from enhancing 'on-hold' time to real-time communications and SIP infrastructure - AstriCon will feature a wide array of topics. Each session is delivered by Asterisk Community members that are happy to share their experience and expertise, and this makes AstriCon the must-attend event for anyone who is serious about Asterisk.
Using Asterisk, the most widely adopted open source platform for creating custom communications solutions, developers and other technical professionals are able to build solutions such as IP PBXs, voice over IP (VoIP) gateways, interactive voice response (IVR) systems, conference bridges, voicemail servers and more. Asterisk also forms the basis for Digium's award-winning Switchvox Unified Communications (UC) solution, which offers the most advanced business phone system features in a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution that scales as companies grow.
“Digium continues to evolve and grow AstriCon programming to match the needs of Asterisk Community members and the amazing wealth of knowledge our expert speakers, sponsors and exhibitors have to offer. Our attendees have access to amazing educational sessions, networking opportunities and technology demonstrations - all delivered by people that are actually out there, on the front lines, doing it,” said David Duffett, Asterisk Community director. “We are excited to expand this year’s content by adding a FreePBX track, and bringing other Asterisk distributions into the AstriCon mix.”
AstriCon 2015 is sponsored by Platinum Sponsor Sangoma and Gold Sponsors Vitelity, XORCOM and NETXUSA. Additional sponsors include OrecX, Jenne, Loway, Grandstream, Cepstral, TeleDynamics and Easy on Hold.
