Step 5: Asterisk VoIP Setup

Our guide covers the process of setting up VoIP to enhance your communication capabilities. Fill in the blanks with the information your provider gives you. Assign each team member their own extension, and voila – it’s like calling them on their personal line. Enable Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) to keep your calls private and secure. 

Tip: Make a few calls within your system to ensure everything sounds crystal clear. 

Step 6: Asterisk SIP Installation

Learn the ins and outs of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) installation, a crucial component for enabling real-time communication over the internet. Before we start the SIP installation party, ensure your system is ready. Open your Asterisk Command Line Interface (CLI). Now, let’s configure your actual device – could be a phone, a softphone on your computer, or even a fancy desk phone. 

Step 7: FreePBX Asterisk Install

Explore the integration of FreePBX with Asterisk, providing you with a feature-rich and user-friendly interface for managing your PBX system. Start by downloading the FreePBX ISO. Open up a web browser and head to your server’s IP. In the FreePBX dashboard, find “Asterisk SIP Settings”. Link FreePBX and Asterisk by adjusting the settings. Hit the “Apply Config” button. Your FreePBX and Asterisk are now in perfect harmony.

Step 8: Asterisk Development and FreeSWITCH Integration

Ever felt the need for a specific feature that Asterisk doesn’t provide out of the box? 

This is where Asterisk development comes into play. Begin by understanding Asterisk extensions. AGI (Asterisk Gateway Interface) scripts open up a world of possibilities. 

Want to connect your system to a CRM or database? AGI scripts make it happen.

Now, imagine combining the robustness of Asterisk with the versatility of FreeSWITCH. FreeSWITCH is an open-source alternative that complements Asterisk beautifully. Whether it’s handling audio or video, FreeSWITCH ensures top-notch quality.
