“We are delighted to have a superb collection of sessions at Asterisk World,” said David Duffett, worldwide community director for the Asterisk open source project. “ITEXPO is a great general communications conference, and the opportunity to share something of the power and flexibility of Asterisk is something we are very excited about. Community speakers and members of the Digium team will work together to deliver high-impact presentations that cover case studies, tutorials and demonstrations of why Asterisk is the most widely used open source communications platform in the world.”

The largest event during Asterisk World is the “Asterisk from Scratch” all-day seminar on January 25.
