Viva Las Vegas!

Next week, several members of our Digium team will be attending ITEXPO West in Las Vegas, Nevada. Please stop by one of the below sessions to learn more about our line of business phone systems.

ITEXPO brings together the entire communications and technology community for a week of business-building and researching today’s most powerful communications solutions. Enterprise, government and SMB end users, resellers, service providers, manufacturers, developers, media and analysts gather to examine solutions in conference sessions, demo products and services live on the expo floor, and forge beneficial relationships.

Digium activities at ITEXPO include:

Asterisk 123 – Monday, August 26th
Come get a well-rounded and informative introduction to the Asterisk Project. All are welcome! Whether you are managing a team deploying an Asterisk implementation, evaluating potential replacements for a legacy telephony solution that’s on its last leg, or you are a general Asterisk “newbie” excited to learn more. Join us to discover the benefits of using Asterisk – and take your Asterisk project to the next level. This all-day seminar is broken into multiple sessions, beginning with background information such as the history of Asterisk. The following sessions include methods of installing Asterisk and examples of fundamental configuration for call flow and features such as Voicemail and IVR. A Question and Answer session will immediately follow the lecture.

Driving Adoption – The Last Inch of UC – August 27th at 3:45PM

Despite data suggesting increased investment and deployment, the past decade has seen much lower true adoption of unified communications than expected. This is in large part due to end-user barriers, including difficulty installing and using devices, as well as a lack of true understanding of the benefits of UC. This session will tackle these challenges and help businesses move to higher adoption rates and more productive use of the unified communications tools in which they have invested.  Discussions will include hardware and software, as well as best practices for driving adoption at the user level.

FreePBX World – August 28th – 29th

One of the featured speakers at this year’s FreePBX World is Billy Chia, Digium’s Asterisk marketing manager. You are invited to join him for a special presentation: “Asterisk 12 – What’s New And How it Affects You.” Billy will discuss the next exciting release of Asterisk – version 12. Currently scheduled for release at AstriCon later this year, Asterisk 12 includes performance-enhancing features and additional integration APIs like no Asterisk release ever before. He’ll discuss the new development efforts being put into Asterisk 12 and how it will impact end users of Asterisk and Asterisk-based distributions, like FreePBX.
