Astricon 2024

HOME AGENDA CALL FOR PAPERS SPEAKER LIST REGISTER

Astricon is the annual event for developers, enterprises, and service providers that have built (or are planning to build) solutions based on the popular Asterisk open source software. AstriCon offers various levels of education sessions and provides attendees with networking opportunities with some of the smartest in the open source community.

Join us for education tracks, visits on the #TECHSUPERSHOW exhibit floor, and the famous "hallway conversations" where community members are happy to meet and discuss all things Asterisk.

Though collocated with the ITEXPO #TECHSUPERSHOW in 2024, AstriCon sessions and meetings take place in a dedicated section of the Broward County Convention Center - allowing you to share experiences and work together to grow Asterisk. Then, use your time to interact with other participants at the #TECHSUPERSHOW between AstriCon events. It's the perfect blend to deliver value for your investment.

Voicenter CTO

The evolution of AI in recent years has fundamentally changed our perception and interaction with technology. In the realm of telephony, a profound shift has been observed from a simple SIP-based PBX to the AI Cloud. Incorporating AI into Asterisk has opened up possibilities that underscore the substantial potential AI holds within VoIP with use cases like: Voice BOTs, Call transcription, Call summarization, Emotional analytics, Improved Call Routing, Optimized lead-to-agent matching, Anti-fraud voice analysis, and more. The session also delves into the integration of Asterisk with AI solutions, exploring the intersection of VoIP and AI, from their integrations to everything in between.

Asterisk in Boeing 787
AST-08
Jean-Denis Girard
Manager
SysNux
The international airline company of French Polynesia was looking for someone to undertake the most surprising project: Building the internal communications system, used by the crew of their new Boeing 787 Tahitian Dreamliner fleet! OK, that's not exactly true. What they really sought was a communications system for their training center that could mimic the real system. Still, the platform replica required simple calls between crew members, conference calls, urgency calls, public address, phone books… It even needed ringing and signaling calls to light up LEDs on the emergency exit signs! Asterisk was up to the task, largely due to ARI. This session describes the specific requirements, delivered solutions, and challenges faced.
