Using Asterisk with Gizmo

Posted: August 7th, 2005 | Author: | Filed under: Linux, Open Source, Web Services | 30 Comments »

This wiki page contains instructions for setting up Asterisk to use your Project Gizmo account for both incoming and outgoing calls. It’s a nice little hack and sounds like a perfect way for me to tinker with outbound VoIP using a spare box and a generic card that I picked up on Ebay months ago. BroadVoice‘s Bring Your Own Device plans also sound worthwhile.

I’m extremely impressed with the configurability of Asterisk. You can do just about anything you can imagine with it, including routing incoming calls based on caller ID info, and extremely complex outbound routing. With the right configuration it’s no big deal to use POTS for outgoing local calls and even multiple VoIP accounts if one has cheaper rates in a partiucular area, all matchable by dial string.

It’s definitely overkill for a simple answering machine, but it’s truly powerful platform.

    Nice blog information was useful, which is a relief this is not always the case with blogs.

    My partner and i are in agreement with the particular earlier commentor, as this is definitely an great post. We are fed up with weblogs about how to earn money and this specific write-up has become exciting. Are you considering doing similar articles or blog posts later on? I am going to come back in a month to take a look with regard to posts too.

    The chicken patty during this dinner is so tender and the breading together with the sauce, makes it style special. For a very low costing frozen dinner, this just one is a winner! I rate New Banquet Hen Pasta Marinara Dinner 4 stars out of 5 stars. This meal is hearty and it does fill me up. I add garlic toast and a salad to it and yes it truly makes this meal complete.

    Nice and organized website man. Anywho, loans are there for anybody who looks for them and can put them to good use. People tend to think that getting money is a lie or some sort. Many have to learn that they can get back on their two feet with loans by their side.
