Book on Asterisk released by Packt

Damian Carvill writes "Packt Publishing is pleased to announce the release of its hugely anticipated book Building Telephony Systems with Asterisk, which is billed as an easy introduction to using and configuring Asterisk to build feature-rich telephony systems for small and medium businesses.

Asterisk is an open source software implementation of a telephone Private Branch Exchange (PBX). Like any PBX, it allows a number of attached telephones to make calls to one another, and to connect to other telephone services including the public switched telephone network (PSTN). Asterisk also supports a wide range of Voice over IP (VoIP) protocols, including SIP and H.323. Asterisk can interoperate with most SIP telephones, acting both as registrar and as a gateway between IP phones and the PSTN.

This book shows readers how to build a telephony system for their home or business using Asterisk. Building Telephony Systems with Asterisk takes readers step-by-step through the process of installing and configuring Asterisk. It shows how to make a deployment plan, and how to create a dial plan. The book also presents example configurations for using Asterisk in three different scenarios: for small and home offices, small businesses, and Hosted PBX.

With an engaging style and excellent way of presenting information, this book makes a complicated subject very easy to understand.
