Wildcard TDM2400P combined with Digium’s patent pending VoiceBus technology provides highest analog density available in a PCI card
HUNTSVILLE, AL — (October 24, 2005) — Digium Inc., the creator of Asterisk and pioneer of open source telephony, today launched the Digium Wildcard TDM2400P, the most dense and scalable card available for building an Asterisk-based telephony system for SOHO and SME environments. The 32-bit 33MHz PCI 2.2-compliant card with Digium’s patent pending VoiceBus architecture, supports quad-FXS station and quad-FXO office interfaces for connecting analog telephones and lines through a PC, without taking up numerous PCI slots.
“The Digium 24-port card offers the highest analog density available in a PCI card and can scale up to 48-ports with two cards and two slots,” said Mark Spencer, president of Digium. “With its flexible scalability features, our 24-port card is the best hardware card available for small and medium businesses looking to build an inexpensive, sophisticated VoIP telephony solution without compromising the use of multiple PCs.”
The Wildcard TDM2400P replaces the requirement for a separate channel bank and T1 interface cards while offering superior echo cancellation on both FXO and FXS interfaces. The quad-FXO and quad-FXS modules are interchangeable allowing the combination of interfaces up to six slots for 4-port FXS or FXO modules. With this new card, small and medium businesses can benefit from features such as high density in fewer PCI slots and an industry standard 50-pin Amphenol connector for easy installation.

Digium is the creator and primary developer of Asterisk, the industry’s first Open Source PBX and Asterisk Business Edition, the professional-grade version of Asterisk. Used in combination with Digium’s PCI telephony interface cards, Asterisk offers a strategic, highly cost-effective approach to voice and data transport over IP, TDM, switched and Ethernet architectures.
Digium solutions reduce the costs of traditional TDM and VoIP implementations through open source, standards-based software and innovative hardware solutions, including legacy PBX, IVR, auto attendant, and next generation gateways, media servers, and application servers. Digium hardware supports traditional voice and data protocols, and packet protocols such as IAX (Inter-Asterisk eXchange), and SIP VoIP.
Digium provides a highly refined selection of quality hardware and software products, developed and implemented using innovative engineering techniques (primarily open source development). A full range of professional services complement these product lines, including consulting, technical support, and customer software development services. The open source communications revolution is here, and Digium is leading the way.
Code for Asterisk, originally written by Mark Spencer of Digium Inc., has been contributed from open source software engineers around the world. It supports a wide range of TDM protocols for the handling and transmission of voice over traditional telephony interfaces. It also supports US and European standard signaling types used in standard business phone systems, allowing it to bridge between next-generation voice-data integrated networks and existing infrastructure. Using the IAX Voice over IP protocol, Asterisk merges voice and data traffic seamlessly across disparate networks. Asterisk is available as open source under the GPL, and from Digium in the professional Asterisk Business Edition package, or under commercial license terms.
