Asterisk Phone Features
Access to information is the key to productivity in today's business environment. The integrated applications that come standard with all Digium phones put critical information at your fingertips. With voicemail, call log, contacts, phone status, user presence, parking, call recording and call queue interface, the Digium phones provide simple, intuitive access to a wealth of information, saving valuable time.
Standards-based IP phones have a reputation for being difficult to install and configure. Most systems require changes to network configurations or additional components to facilitate deployment. Digium phones support plug-and-play provisioning. Simply plug in the phone and it will automatically discover Asterisk systems on the network. Select the user you want to assign to the phone and the proper configuration is instantly loaded. For larger deployments you can pre-assign phones by tying a MAC address to an Asterisk user. It's that simple.
Most desktop phones come with a fixed feature set that is determined exclusively by the manufacturer. Digium phones are different. All models include the Digium app engine, an innovative application framework that makes it remarkably simple to add new functionality or tailor the standard applications to your needs. All of the productivity applications that ship with the phones are written using the app engine SDK. Documentation for the app engine is coming soon, opening up the phones to third party development.
Getting Started With Digium Phones
Digium phones will work with any version of Asterisk. However, we've added some compelling features that are only available today in a special branch of Asterisk. To take advantage of simple provisioning, integrated applications and the app engine, you will need to use Certified Asterisk. Certified Asterisk is available from the downloads page as source code or packaged with AsteriskNOW 2.0.
Get The DPMA
The Digium Phone Module for Asterisk (DPMA) is an add-on module for the phones branch that acts as a secure gateway between the server and the phones. The DPMA manages provisioning, firmware updates and integration between phone applications and core Asterisk services. (Note that the DPMA is not a new VoIP channel: the phones use standard SIP and RTP for calls.)
Get A DPMA License Key
To activate the DPMA you will need a license key, available free from the Digium web store. For information on distributing the DPMA with your Asterisk-based product, please contact Digium sales.
