About

FreeSWITCH is an open source telephony platform designed to facilitate the creation of voice, chat, and video applications. It can scale from a soft-phone to a PBX and even up to an enterprise-class softswitch.

In the FreeSWITCH Cookbook, members of the FreeSWITCH development team share some of their hard-earned knowledge with you in the book’s recipes. Use this knowledge to improve and expand your FreeSWITCH installations.

The FreeSWITCH Cookbook is an essential addition to any VoIP administrator’s library.

The book starts with recipes on how to handle call routing and then discusses connecting your FreeSWITCH server to the outside world.

It then teaches you more advanced topics like CDR handling, practical examples of controlling FreeSWITCH with the event socket, and configuring many features commonly associated with a PBX installation.

Raymond Chandler

Raymond Chandler(@intralanman) has been working with, and contributing to, open source projects for over a decade. Raymond's VoIP experience started with a small CLEC/ITSP using SER for call routing, and Asterisk for voicemail and advanced services. After encountering limits in Asterisk and looking for features not easily found in SER, he moved to using OpenSER and CallWeaver (then known as OpenPBX.org). While that combination was better, he still had not found his perfect solution. In 2006, he was introduced to FreeSWITCH. Since then, he's been using FreeSWITCH and regularly contributing to the community. He is the author of mod_lcr and several utility PHP/Perl scripts. He now works with Anthony Minessale as a CudaTel Software Engineer at Barracuda Networks (@CudaTel and @Barracuda). In the spring of 2011, he was among the founding members of the Open Source Telephony Advancement Group (@OSTAG), whose mission is to advance open source telephony to new heights by funding open source projects through funds received by generous contributions and grants from those who share the OSTAG vision.
