Learn all about Asterisk...

What do you know?
Nothing about Asterisk.

What do you want to do?
I want an easy introduction to using and configuring Asterisk. I want to build a feature-rich telephone system for small and medium businesses.

Then choose this...

Building Telephony Systems With AsteriskThis book is aimed at anyone who is interested in building a powerful telephony system using the free and open source application, Asterisk.

 


Program Asterisk...

What do you know?
I have some experience with Asterisk and a basic understanding of programming, but I haven't done any programming work with Asterisk yet.

What do you want to do?
I want to add applications and functionality to my existing Asterisk system. I want to learn Asterisk Gateway Interface (AGI) development and proper AGI development practices.

Then choose this...

Asterisk Gateway Interface 1.4 and 1.6 Programming This book is intended for developers wishing to utilize Asterisk, system administrators wishing to gain better control over their Asterisk installation, and telephony service providers wishing to deploy Asterisk-based solutions to their infrastructure.


Use a web-based interface

What do you know?
I’m a complete beginner to VOIP.

What do you want to do?
I want to use AsteriskNOW. I realize that it is not the same as Asterisk, but that it is an out-of-the-box, easy-to-use version of Asterisk with a web-based GUI. 

Then choose this...

AsteriskNOW This book is for complete beginners who are interested in setting up their own telephony system and are overwhelmed with the configuration options in Asterisk. It shows how to install and configure AsteriskNow and configure the required dial plan.


Learn all about TrixBox

What do you know?
I know nothing about Trixbox or networking, but I do have some experience of Asterisk.

What do you want to do?
Instead of using AsteriskNow, I’d prefer to use and learn about Trixbox. Trixbox provides a comprehensive web-based GUI for managing an Asterisk-based system. It’s easier than dealing with confusing configuration files.

Then choose this...

trixbox CE 2.6 This book is a step-by-step tutorial with clear instructions and screenshots to guide you through the creation of a complete, cost-effective telephony system.
