Voice over IP (VoIP)

Asterisk

  • Asterisk The Future of Telephony - 2nd Edition.  One of the definitive books on Asterisk - free download from OReilly.  This covers Asterisk 1.4 so is a bit dated.  3rd Edition is in print but not freely available - cdn.oreilly.com
  • Getting Started with Asterisk Free eBook - Have not reviewed this but looks pretty good on the surface.   The rest of the site also has some interesting Asterisk related resources.
  • Asterisk Resource Page - Main asterisk link in the voip-info.org site.   Very good links to current news, books, tutorials, hardware, and pretty much everything else asterisk related  -  Voip-Info.org
  • Digium - Main commercial company behind Asterisk - site has a lot of info on Asterisk, VoIP, as well as COTS hardware (including IP Phones).  G.729 codec licensing can be purchased here  -  digium.com
  • Asterisk Open Source - Home site for the open source version of Asterisk including all downloads  -  asterisk.org
  • AsteriskNow - Pre-built version of Asterisk featuring quick and simple installation  -  asterisk.org
  • Trixbox - Commercial version of Asterisk from Fonality  -  trixbox.com
