Ever since I found my first VoIP phone, I have loved Asterisk. Sure I’m familiar with FreeSWITCH, Yate, Cisco CallManager and so on, but I literally LOVE Asterisk. I’ve worked with Asterisk in many settings, including direct configuration, freePBX and now Schmooze’s PBXact and it’s various plugins, such as XactView, XactFax and PBXtended. I have also amassed several years of experience with BroadSoft, working both in the GUI and with specific management systems in all of the major component host nodes.
I’ve built Asterisk PBXs from the ground up, including designing Asterisk compatible systems, compatible operating systems and even a few GUI applications to work with Asterisk. I am familiar with both static and realtime configurations and have even worked with Digium and Sangoma hardware for analog lines and T1/PRI connectivity.
On the phone side, I have connected Asterisk to everything from average telephones to telephone adapters and channel banks. I have worked with most major handset vendors, such as:
I have also worked with many SIP and IAX vendors, including, Qwest/CenturyLink, CBeyond, Integra, Junction Networks and Teliax.
