March 17, 2011 - Digium, the creator and driving force behind the most popular and widely used telephony software, is planning to update and release a new version of Asterisk this fall. With several upgraded features designed to address known issues and shortcomings present in the current version of Asterisk, the new version will allow for better functionality and more options.

Asterisk is the most popular open source telephony software available. It can essentially create a communications center for businesses using standard computer hardware. This software enables businesses to utilize VoIP technologies to increase productivity and flexibility while reducing overall telephony expenses.

Currently running version 1.8, Asterisk will be upgraded to version 1.10 sometime this fall. The upgraded version will allow for a greater flexibility and support for various audio codecs currently unsupported by Asterisk. Also included is a new and improved conferencing application, which will increase functionality for Asterisk users. Digium has also promised a rich feature set overall with new improvements in other areas.

Digium is the creator of Asterisk, the world’s most widely used telephony software. Founded in 1999, the company vision is “a world based on open communications.” Their goal is to reshape the manner in which businesses source and operate their communications equipment. By using open source standards, rather than proprietary technologies, business consumers can significantly reduce their communications expenses.
