Digium Unveils New Software Appliance AsteriskNOW

AsteriskNOW enables Asterisk implementations in 30 minutes or less

HUNTSVILLE, AL — (January 3, 2007) — Digium, Inc., the Asterisk company, today announced its first software appliance, AsteriskNOW, the open source distribution of Asterisk featuring a Digium-designed GUI. AsteriskNOW includes a new setup wizard that guides users through the installation process with ease, regardless of any previous Linux experience. The solution can be up and running within 30 minutes.

The AsteriskNOW distribution includes all the Linux components necessary to run, debug and build Asterisk, making Asterisk easier to install and maintain in the office or at home. Users can navigate through a simple setup wizard, including the ability to use default dial plans and easy configurations. The AsteriskNOW GUI is highly flexible, giving users the ability to add, modify and delete users. Download options include ISO/CD Image, VM Player image, Xen universal guest image and LiveCD (burn and boot).

“Digium appreciates the initial response to AsteriskNOW. We placed the initial beta version on AsteriskNOW.org last month and have experienced over 2,000 downloads per day without any promotion! Our goal of reducing the complexity of installing and using Asterisk will expand the market for Digium into more mainstream use,” said Mark Spencer, president of Digium and creator of Asterisk. “Unlike other Linux distributions used to deploy Asterisk, AsteriskNOW does not have unnecessary components that could compromise security or performance.”

AsteriskNOW, based on the recently released Asterisk 1.4, is Digium’s open source software appliance. The AsteriskNOW.org website includes a forum for community support and feedback as well as a developer blog.

Support and Availability
AsteriskNOW is available for download on the official AsteriskNOW website www.asterisknow.org and www.asterisk.org.
