Preface

AsteriskNOW is an open-source software appliance from Digium: a customized Linux distribution, which includes Asterisk (the leading open-source telephony engine and tool kit), the AsteriskGUI, and all the other software needed for an Asterisk telephony system.

This book discusses the installation and configuration of the AsteriskNOW open-source PBX appliance distribution and is written in the form of a self-study guide or a quick cookbook, to get you up and running with AsteriskNOW as fast as possible.

While Asterisk, the open-source PBX is a fairly broad subject to cover—the AsteriskNOW distribution takes the spikes out of installing and using Asterisk, and lowers the bar to the level of an intermediate system's administrator.
