Asterisk Set to Take On UC Vendors?

Friday Oct 29th 2010 by VoipPlanet.com Staff

Having firmly established itself in the IP PBX world, Digium appears now to be challenging vendors of business-grade unified communications.

"Digium this week announced Asterisk Scalable Communications Framework, its new software project to support massively scalable and fault-tolerant communications networks that customers can integrate with their own applications more readily than they could with commercial UC platforms," writes Tim Greene on ComputerWorld New Zealand.

" While still under development, SCF and its high-availability potential were demonstrated this week at Astricon, the Asterisk user conference. The company showed how an SCF phone call could survive the failure of its call-setup server and later transfer the same call. A developers’ release of SCF is available at www.asterisk.org," Greene writes.
