See technology that is going to fundamentally change the telecommunications industry.
Asterisk is a complete telecommunications platform.
From caller ID to long distance, anything your telephone system can do, Asterisk can do and do it cheaper.
Asterisk was designed to be able to do everything a traditional telephone system can do, and much, much more. Asterisk is, at it's heart, a PBX system. However, it includes a whole host of telephony features such as voice mail and call conferencing.
Asterisk creates a PBX that rivals the features and functionality of traditional telephony switches. Asterisk is cost-effective, low-maintenance, and flexible enough to handle all voice and data networking.
With Asterisk software, Digium hardware, and a common PC, anyone can replace an existing switch or complement a PBX by adding Voice Over IP, voice mail, conferencing, and many other capabilities. Asterisk integrates with analog phones and most standards-based IP telephone handsets and software.

Vonage puts 911 caller on hold

I know that this concern was brought up last night, and lo and behold, a story this morning on Slashdot concerning this very thing. Seems a Vonage customer was put on hold when making a 911 call, and thus his house burned to the ground.

The fine article
