Asterisk and the Social Internet of Things

Asterisk support for WebRTC and websocket based SIP clients combined with cloud connectivity enablement has allowed us to build out a distributed voice-enabled social network, with social connections between organizations and colleagues, and Asterisk-based PBXs.
Using an IoT inspired model, our Asterisk based PBXs participate in a pure web-tech based social network, wanderweb.net, by signing in to the same https service as ordinary human users. Javascript is served up to an Node based shell to enable web-driven code-on-demand applications to run on site.
The wanderweb.net IoT client is a code-on-demand application delivered to the Node.js shell on the Asterisk PBX. It authenticates with, then opens a secure websocket to wanderweb.net. It also opens websockets to Asterisk as required for SIP registrations. The websockets are bridged in order to deliver bidirectional SIP communications between the Asterisk instance and a SIP proxy in the cloud. The same websocket is also used for OAM and http connection to the platform.
The rapid advances of ARM SoC based platforms, driven by mobile applications, has resulted in the availability of many powerful, low cost, energy efficient platforms that are ideal for Asterisk applications. At the same time, Linux distributions such as Ubuntu now have standardized ARM architecture software ecosystems. We have released a quad core ARM based PBX/Gateway product that runs Asterisk and the rest of our software stack, as used on our more traditional Intel architecture products. This includes the WebRTC and IoT client features. With this we are able to offer an extremely low cost on-site solution that supports WebRTC based UC mobility through its interaction with wanderweb.net.T
