switched networks and correspondent relationships.
Discover the elements within that have attracted leading
organizations worldwide to participate in this new marketplace:
What lies within the core of the peering fabric
Where the peering fabric reaches
Why the shift of VoIP to a private voice Internet
How bi-lateral and multi-lateral (ENUM/SRV) peering
10:15 am - 11:00 am Peering and Transcoding with Asterisk on the VPF Speaker: Kevin Fleming, Director of Software Technologies, Digium Asterisk is being deployed more often as critical infrastructure in
enterprise and carrier networks. This session will focus on how
Asterisk can be used to facilitate VoIP peering using industrystandards
(and Asterisk-specific) protocols including ENUM, SRV,
ITAD and DUNDi.
In addition, we will also discuss how Asterisk can be deployed as
a high-performance 'transcoding appliance'. Transcoding is often
required when connecting calls between peering networks that
use common (and not-so-common) voice codec's.
