9 June 2009

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. and RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 09, 2009—Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company and Ascom Wireless Solutions, a leading provider of on-site wireless communications, today announced an expansion of the companies’ agreement to allow Ascom to offer all of Digium’s Asterisk-based appliances. For more than a year, Ascom has been offering the Digium Asterisk Appliance 50 (AA50), a stand-alone telephony platform. Now, Ascom adds Digium’s larger-capacity AA60 and AA350 to the Ascom-branded product line and will sell the products under the Ascom Analog VoIP Gateway name in North America and select markets.

Asterisk is the most widely deployed open source telephony software. In addition to providing all standard PBX features, Asterisk’s support for industry standards and numerous communications protocols allows it to act as a gateway and thus to extend the reach of networks or add support for different types of devices. In Ascom’s application, Asterisk acts as a VoIP gateway for the standards-based wireless handsets.

Ascom offers the Digium appliances as the Ascom Analog VoIP Gateway, which provides analog connectivity from legacy PBXs for the Ascom FreeNET VoWiFi and Freeset IP-DECT wireless systems. The Ascom FreeNET VoWiFi and Freeset IP-DECT systems offer customers two different radio technology choices when installing a standard-based, on-site wireless solution. Both provide a range of portable handsets that are durable, enable hands free operation, push-to-talk and emergency features. The Ascom UNITE Messaging Suite can be added to provide automated text messages and alerts from any system or production equipment directly to the handset of the mobile worker.

“Our SMB customers have benefitted from the Ascom Analog VoIP Gateway’s ease and cost efficient migration possibility for more than a year,” said Tom McKearney, executive vice president of marketing and business development at Ascom (US), Inc. “Digium’s solution has been a perfect complement to the rest of our product line, so we’ve chosen to add additional products in the Asterisk Appliance family and to offer this within our solutions to our customers in North America and select markets in order to provide a wider range of options, including fault-tolerance and T1/E1 support.”

Bill Miller, vice president of product management at Digium, said: “Asterisk’s standards-compliance, openness and vast feature set allow its use as a true platform for voice applications. In Ascom’s case, Asterisk is the easy-to-install, cost-effective way to tie analog and wireless systems together. Ascom’s decision to incorporate the entire Asterisk Appliance family into its own product line and to take it out to customers in select markets is gratifying to the team at Digium.”
