Freeswitch Bootcamp: The Open Softswitch

Anthony Minnesale
Brian West, System Administrator, Asterlink, Inc.

Date: Tuesday, February 27
Time: 8:30am - 10:00am
Location: Salon ABCD

Tony Minnesale and Brian West will lead our workshop on Freeswitch. Freeswitch was introduced to be a more scalable and resilient alternative to Asterisk and be scalable enough to function as a low-end Telco switch. While it is nowhere near as popular as Asterisk, it is taking its first steps and its presence represents a significant alternative to other open source PBX choices. This workshop will introduce users to getting started with the software, installing it, and deploying it successfully. Towards the end of the session, an in-depth technical discussion will take place on its extensibility and recent commercial applications.
