Digium IP phones are specifically engineered to fully leverage the power of Asterisk. Coupled with the Digium Phone Module for Asterisk (DPMA), a free add-on module which allows Asterisk to share rich information with Digium phones, users can access advanced applications directly from the phone’s interface, enabling zero-touch provisioning. The Digium phones are far superior to any other SIP phone as the DPMA exposes Asterisk applications automatically to the phones without requiring additional scripting, allowing setup to occur in one place in Asterisk, therefore saving time on installations for integrators. Existing Asterisk phone applications include visual voicemail, real-time presence, integrated call parking, one-touch recording, a searchable directory for contacts and detailed call queues. In addition, custom applications can be developed to run on the Digium phones through an integrated JavaScript API, which is currently in beta, and provides users powerful custom solutions to increase their productivity.

Digium phones provide users a distinct advantage when they are connecting them to Asterisk – no other phone is this easy or secure to install,” said David Hardy, director of business development for Digium. “And the Digium Phone Module for Asterisk and the JavaScript API give developers and customers what they have asked for – the ability to easily customize applications on the phones that interface directly with core Asterisk features. In addition, when using the Digium phones, users now have the ability to see user presence with Asterisk.”

Demonstrations will also highlight the new addition of language and localization support in the IP phones including UK English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
