CounterPath Introduces Bria for Asterisk (SIP / VoIP Softphone Client)

CounterPath and Digium recently launched Bria for Asterisk, a co-branded VoIP softphone solution that’s pre-integrated with the open source Asterisk platform.

"We’ve done interoperability testing against the Asterisk platform, particularly from a Digium perspective—and we have IM, video and presence available for the solution," he says.

QueueMetrics 1.5.0 released for Asterisk PBX

We are proud to announce that Queuemetrics 1.5.0 has been released.

This version adds a major new component called AGAW (Agent Awareness) that lets your agents see in real-time how they are faring comparing to their queue, and puts in place an IM infrastructure where agent-to-supervisor and agent-to-product-specialist communication can be completely off-band.

There is also a long list of new features and bugs fixed that should make this release interesting for most of you.

This release works with the same activation keys you used on your current version of QueueMetrics.  As always, we value your feedback on how to improve QueueMetrics to make it a better fit to your needs.

Enjoy the update,

Introducing AIM Call Out for Asterisk

Today we’re taking a Margarita Break from our shiny new PBX in a Flash 1.2 server to play with AOL’s new AIM® Call Out. AOL actually introduced the service as an Open Voice API, but it walks and quacks like a SIP termination gateway so that, of course, tempted us to try it. Since it is SIP-compatible, we thought it would be fun to see if we could get it working with Asterisk. It didn’t take long...

QueueMetrics 1.4.0 for Asterisk PBX Released Today

Note: After actually using this for a couple years I have to say this is one of the best 3rd party applications for the Asterisk PBX.  Adding this to a call center is like taking a breath of fresh air because of the report and real-time stats.  I want to setup a wall board at our office for fun.  
After a few months of developement, we are proud to release QueueMetrics 1.4.0

This release adds a very large number of new features and bug fixes:

Major New Features:
- New master engine! It should be 4x faster and 2x as memory efficient as QM 1.3, though it's tracking much more information. It's 100% compatible witth the old configuration switches. (#2, #4, #69)
- New clustering engine! clustering is now fully supported for historical, live and agent's page data. The configuration is a bit different from version 1.3.3 (#23)
- New Agent's page: an agent can log on, log off, go to pause and terminate pauses.
- Call codes tracking: your agent can associate a call code to each incoming/outgoing call and QM will report on it.
- Pause codes: an agent can mark WHY he goes on pause from the ACD, and QM will report on it.
- Multi-stint calls: if a call has been handled by multiple queues, eg it has been passed to an overflow queue, it is now possible to track its progression (#129)

AstJax - Firefox Web Browser Click2Call Script

Just to announce that I've improved upon a greasemonkey script which allows users to dial any number (in the given regex format) by turning it into a clickable hyperlink.

The script uses greasemonkey's ajax callback to a simple php controller script, so that the click does not navigate away from the current page.

It requires an Asterisk Manager connection.

See http://yaptele.com/asterisk-firefox-click-to-dial-ajax-script for more details.

DialplanPro Beta - Windows GUI

Note:  Found this on the list this morning.  Looks promising after reading the description for those integrators that still use xp/2000 as the daily desktop.

Originally an exercise to learn Asterisk and have a GUI of my own to use, I developed a Windows based GUI to build dial plans and upload them to the Asterisk server.  Currently in beta, it's aim is to abstract routine chores such as dialing an extension or playing a voice.

I also wanted to be able to implement custom code in a easy graphical way as well so I included a scripting editor with most of the core functionality you'd expect like syntax highlighting, Parameter Hints, etc.

Web-MeetMe 3.0.0 released for Asterisk

We've been holding back on this release to coincide with the Asterisk 1.4.0 release. 

This is mostly a compatibility release, but there are a few new features:
*  No longer requires register_globals in PHP
*  Separated code from configuration settings in ./lib/defines.php  (hopefully this will make future upgrades easier)
*  Migrated all database interfaces to PEAR::DB which simplifies the code a bit and opens
up the possibility of using other databases to host the scheduling DB (app_cbmysql is still only MySQL, but ODBC is planned/hoped for)
*  The conference monitoring code now uses the concise output from "meetme list", improving
the parsing of participant details.
*  Minor tweaks to improve the cbEnd.php script that enforces the conference duration, plays announcements and populates the conferencing CDRs.
*  Conference CDR records now store participant duration in seconds instead of a formatted string, allowing for further analysis (the web interface still formats the duration for display purposes)
*  App_cbmysql is updated to work with Asterisk 1.4.0
*  App_cbmysql has it's own build environment now, no longer requiring a Makefile patch, etc...
