Skype Cuts Asterisk VOIP PBX Support Skype Cuts Asterisk VOIP PBX SupportSkype Cuts Asterisk VOIP PBX Support


27 May 2011

About two weeks passed since Microsoft announced acquisition of Skype, but the world-famous VoIP Company started cutting its connections with the open-source world. Asterisk became the first partner cut loose.
Skype made the decision not to renew company’s agreement with Digium that allows Asterisk to be integrated with the Skype service.
According to Digium’s letter, it includes proprietary Skype’s software that allows Asterisk joining Skype network as a native client. Now Skype decided not to renew the contract that permits to package this proprietary software.
The agreement will end on July 26. According to officials, Skype promised to provide support and maintenance for the software for two years.
In this situation, after July 26, new users of Asterisk will not have possibility to connect to the Skype network.
There are some rumors that Skype moves away from Asterisk because giant Microsoft planned launching a Microsoft-hosted version of company’s Lync UC server in summer 2011. And it is more than just clear, that Asterisk is in competition with Lync.
And the recent news: Skype again faced network outage for about one hour, but the VoIP Company succeeded to fix it rather quick this time.
