Learn to Build VoIP-Based Telephony System with New Asterisk Book

Thursday, March 26, 2009 | News | Linux Servers

Packt is pleased to announce a new book that helps design and develop VoIP telephony platforms and services through the Asterisk platform. Written by Open Source expert, Nir Simionovich, Asterisk Gateway Interface 1.4 and 1.6 Programming helps users develop voice-enabled applications using PHP and PHPAGI class library.

Asterisk is the world's leading open-source PBX, telephony engine, and telephony applications toolkit with immense flexibility. Originally designed for Linux, Asterisk now also runs on a variety of different operating systems including NetBSD, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris.

Through this book, users will learn a new concept called "Atomic AGI" or "Particle Programming". They will also learn the various techniques of interactions, where user interaction isn't limited to keypad-based input, but also includes recording messages from the user, sending output to them, and controlling the call flow. This book builds from dialplan-based application, which is the simplest form of an Asterisk application, thus building a full understanding of AGI scripting.

Users will learn how to formulate Atomic AGI-enabled scripts, enabling quick development within a well-defined Asterisk execution and runtime environment. They will understand the Asterisk Manager Interface and its utilization in Asterisk applications, and develop full web-based call-back platforms and highly interactive IVR applications using PHP and PHPAGI.

System administrators and telephony service providers wishing to gain better control over their Asterisk installation, and deploy Asterisk-based solutions to their infrastructure will find this book helpful. This book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/asterisk-gateway-interface-programming/book
