Acquisition of Digium by Sangoma Makes Astricon a Must-Do Communications Developer and Service Provider Event

 

 

 

 

 

DIDx has participated in at least a dozen AstriCon events since 2005. We believe it is of great value, so read on some news from different sources like David Duffet (director of worldwide Asterisk community) and Malcolm Davenport (senior product manager at Digium.) This is a very important year for Astricon since Digium was acquired by Sangoma.

New Owners, New Ideas, New Initiatives

As the new owners of AstriCon, Sangoma is bringing new ideas and initiatives to improve Asterisk and to grow the user community. Wondering how things have/will change with Asterisk? One thing for sure, Asterisk will not go away. It is happily deployed by millions of enterprises, developers and service providers still!

“Ask Them Anything” – Special Info Session at AstriCon
In addition to all of the great content at AstriCon, Sangoma and Digium will co-host a special session on Tuesday, October 9 to talk about the opportunities created by our new combined company.

David Duffet and the team that produce AstriCon know you have a lot of questions about Asterisk, FreePBX, and the future. So they’ve assembled a great collection of very senior people so that you can Ask Them Anything. This panel is the place to get those answers. David Duffet will preside over the discussion.

AstriCon is the perfect place to network, mingle and reunite with Asterisk community members from around the globe. We believe the Astricon 2018 class of speakers will make this event even more special. So come for all of the great sessions, the amazing networking and fun – and learn about the opportunities created when Digium and Sangoma became one entity.

Deb Bryant, Open Source & Standards @RedHatOpen; civic advocate of open government and open data is the Oct 9-11 2018 Astricon keynote speaker.

Exhibitors include ClusterPBX, Jenne, OrecX, Tele Dynamics, Vicidial, OpenSIPS, Issabel, Kamailio, FreeSWITCH, Simwood, LumenVox, Voyant, TelcoBridges, VTech, Khomp, Telnyx, Yealink, Grandstream, NetXUSA, VoIP Supply, Sangoma, Digium, ScanSource, Fanvil, Cepstral and Bicom.

Distribute Data, Scale Capacity and Achieve High Availability with OpenSIPS 2.4 Release

OpenSIPS Summit 2018 Amsterdam, Netherlands | DIDx.net from Muntwo Productions on Vimeo.

The road map of OpenSIPS 2.4 is an ambitious one, addressing one of the most complex but vital capabilities of a SIP server. The ability to exceed the status of a single instance application in order to scale in a shape of a multi-node instance cluster.  The road map of OpenSIPS 2.4 is an ambitious one, addressing one of the most complex but vital capabilities of a SIP server. The ability to exceed the status of a single instance application in order to scale in a shape of a multi-node instance cluster.

What are the benefits?

A. Data distribution, capacity scaling

B. Geographical distribution

C. High availability as data and service

Being able to add clustering support services like registration, calling and presence requires complex and extensive work. Still, the team at OpenSIPS are almost at the end, just a day before the beta release.

Let’s get the status from the OpenSIPS developer team. Watch the video to learn more.

Bogdan Iancu, Liviu Chircu, Razvan Crainea and Vlad Patrascu describe their contributions and collaboration in the the exciting OpenSIPS 2.4 beta release that takes place March 28, 2018 and then the full release on April 30, 2018, one day before the OpenSIPS Summit 2018.

A big part of Liviu’s work was in the OpenSIPS and FreeSWITCH integration and total restructuring and revamp of the user location module. They are planning to build certain clustering modes into it to help you fit better with whatever platform you have.

Razvan is planning to bring some CGRates and RTP engine to OpenSIPS 2.4. (More information from his contribution soon!)

Vlad Patrascu says he’s been with the project for more than two years. His work is focused on improving the clustering under layer and to support important features like dynamic topologies and full data syncing. He’s implemented one model for distributed user location and highly available support for dialer tracking.

Discover the 2.4 capabilities from OpenSIPS Summit formal presentations on stage, in informal discussions in the lobby and via relaxing night-time activities. You’ll learn from interactive demos on building clusters and more. Be fully immersed in the one day workshop focused on clustering training.
