Getting Your Asterisk In Gear: Web Services Edition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It’s time to broaden our horizons and stop thinking of Asterisk as a standalone system, but as a critical real-time component in an increasingly services-based world. Even if it’s something as simple as your company IVR, integrating Asterisk into the greater Internet can do amazing things – how about leaving status updates from Twitter for after-hours interactivity? This session will focus on ways to integrate Asterisk into a larger ecosystem of web services using solutions like Docker, Redis, Kafka and Adhearsion.

We’ll cover what tools exist to help get information in and out of your Asterisk, multiple scenarios in which that information could be useful in other business situations, and practical examples. We’ll take a walk through the backend systems of a wireless telecom powered by open-source software and examine how scale starts to affect different pieces of the infrastructure, from billing to customer support and, as promised, how you manage your Twitter feed!

Creating an cluster has never been easier, so let’s get your Asterisk in gear.
