GPL Hardware Project for Asterisk

David Rowe has mailed details of a new GPL hardware project for Asterisk:

uCasterisk (you-see-Asterisk) is a set of scripts, makefiles and patches to build Asterisk for uClinux. The target is the Blackfin BF533 STAMP board, although it should be portable to other uClinux platforms.

uCasterisk is one part of a project to build a completely open telephony hardware platform. Both the hardware and the software will be freely available under the GPL. The target cost for a complete IP PBX (including multiple analog ports or a T1) is $200 to $400. Imagine an Asterisk-powered IP-PBX in the form factor of an ATA - no PC required.

Updated Guide to using the SPA-3000

My original article on using the SPA-3000 was extremely popular but with new versions of Asterisk and Asterisk@Home, the original instructions don't work quite right. After finally upgrading my own system to Asterisk@Home 2.1, I needed to get the SPA-3000 back working again. This new article is all updated and tested, so if you use the SPA-3000, you can now get it back working properly.

Using this mode you can seperate users from devices unlike the standard "Extensions" mode which associates one user to one device. For an overview of this feature and how to enable it, check out the latest article at VOIPSpeak.
