Signate Offers VoIP Telephony with Asterisk 2nd edition

Guest writes "Signate, the leading provider of VoIP telephony solutions that combine high performance hardware and open source software, today announced the second edition of VoIP Telephony with Asterisk, by Paul Mahler, Signate’s Chief Technical Officer. Intended for those new to the Asterisk open source PBX software project, the second edition of Mahler’s best selling guide has been revised, re-organized and expanded to reflect the current state of the project.

VoIP Telephony with Asterisk Second Edition shows readers how to combine Asterisk open source software with industry-standard Linux-based computer hardware to create reliable, highly capable VoIP telephony systems with a total cost of ownership that’s typically less than half the cost of proprietary systems.

The first edition of VoIP Telephony with Asterisk was the first comprehensive guide to the open source PBX software, and has been the best-selling book in its sector with more than 6,000 copies sold. Mahler incorporated reader feedback and his experiences teaching Asterisk to hundreds of students to make the new and improved Second Edition an even better resource for learning the essentials about designing, building and maintaining a PBX based on Asterisk:

· It makes Asterisk more approachable -- chapters have been reorganized for better understanding, beginning with an introduction and instructions for your first configuration and progressing to more advanced material.
· It contains expanded information about technologies and recent improvements in Asterisk, including deeper discussion of SIP and IAX connections
· It includes more command reference material including additional appendices detailing link speeds and installation checklists

“The Asterisk environment is constantly changing and improving,” Mahler said. “The second edition incorporates enhancements to Asterisk through version 1.2 and is reorganized to shorten the time it takes Asterisk newcomers to become productive.”

VoIP Telephony with Asterisk Second Edition is available from selected resellers worldwide or from Signate’s online store for $39.95 plus shipping. For more information, visit
