Digium is a VoIP software provider that sponsors and produces Asterisk.
Asterisk is Digium's open-source software that turns any computer - really, any computer - into an IP PBX communications server. As VoIP service has gotten easier and easier to supply, Digium and Asterisk have become even more popular.
Why is Asterisk popular?
Asterisk is free. Asterisk is also open-source. Since everyone can edit the source code, everyone can benefit from new features, new development, and new bug fixes.
Digium also provides a variety of VoIP-related services in addition to Asterisk:
- Asterisk training
- Switchvox SMB
- Custom Telephony
- Hosted Asterisk
Digium makes Asterisk and then Digium trains you on Asterisk.
Want Asterisk on its own hardware? Want an Asterisk setup packed with useful features? Try Digium's Switchvox: with varying sizes for numbers of users from 30 to 400, Switchvox could be the right VoIP solution for you.
Switchvox is an IP PBX phone system, a similar product to the IP PBX phone systems offered in our store.
Mix and match VoIP services while still working with Asterisk.
Want Asterisk but don't want the work associated with it?
Digium offers hosted PBX service in partnership with Cbeyond Cloud Services. Digium offers Asterisk, Cbeyond offers the VoIP service, and you get the VoIP savings you expect and need. Even better, as of March 9, 2011, Digium offers a free 30-day Hosted Asterisk trial period.
