International calling, can't we all just get along?
As telecom becomes more and more decentralized with all the new equipment, technologies and players (both big and small) the issues that we face daily are becoming ever more complex and one needs to always be one step ahead. Some of the items I plan on discussing are: 1) Why can CLI (Caller ID) be so unpredictable? 2) FAS - How to detect and beat it. 3) Why is the cheapest price not always the best. 4) SS7 , T1/E1, SIP and IAX. Does the protocol matter? 5) Calls were working fine. What just broke them?

Workshop: Asterisk as a virtual network function - Session 1: Intro to NFV & VNF-Asterisk
What is NFV? What is a VNF? That’s “network function virtualization” and “virtual network functions.” This begins a series of workshops dedicated to running “VNF-Asterisk” -- using Asterisk as a Virtual Network Function. Leif Madsen and Doug Smith have been exploring technology gaps in cloud native NFV workloads, and have been using Asterisk to explore the gaps. Doug & Leif are here to introduce these concepts and arm you with the knowledge so you can put your hands on the keyboard and explore vnf-asterisk yourself.

Beyond Asterisk Omni Channel Contact Center
Are you familiar with Asterisk call center applications? The great open source community did a very good job for voice applications, and we have been able to use it in many call center environment to deliver voice mission critical services. It’s now time to have a look beyond the pure voice interactions, introducing what we can do with Asterisk integrated with multiple other channels: web chat, sms, email and more. This year the XCALLY Team will present a real concept about the Asterisk Omni Channel opportunities. The Asterisk call center agents will be able to manage multiple kind of interactions, and - even more interesting - it will be introduced the concept of Open Channel: a simple way to add custom channels inside an Asterisk call center environment, from Social media to IoT events which need to be managed by a Queue of customer service representative or an Automatic workflow. Dangerous demo will be played during the session, in order to see when such concepts work and when they break!

WebRTC Won–Now What?
With hundreds of millions of active users and billions of supported devices, WebRTC has more than proven it can be used in high-scale applications. However, the 6-year-old technology has hardly reached ubiquity. WebRTC brings unique challenges and limitations. For telephony developers who aren’t using WebRTC, this leaves many questions: -I’m not doing WebRTC, is it too late? -I’m not doing WebRTC, should I start? -What do I need to know to be successful in WebRTC? -How quickly is this all going to change? WebRTC expert Chad Hart will explore and answer these questions with a focus on WebRTC for open source telephony developers.

Keynote - Dean Bubley - “What the future holds for Asterisk (and what’s overhyped)”

“What the future holds for Asterisk (and what’s overhyped)” The Community is familiar with IoT, AI, Blockchain, Robots, 3D-printing and other technologies on the list of “next big things” promised by futurists. But what do any of these mean for communications and IP telephony? This session explores the possible intersection-points between IP communications platforms, and emerging technologies and trends. Can blockchain be used for “data integrity protection,” to ensure anti-tamper controls on call records or even voice recordings? How can AI improve voice? Is it just about speaking home or mobile “assistants,” or can it be applied in contact centers or sales team applications? And what about IoT? Focusing on where machines or sensors can trigger actual human interaction, whether by voice or video, and the fact that all of this has to set against the real world of deployment – skills, costs, and regulation. What might happen when all these intersections bring contradictions, for example, when lawful intercept of calls clashes with medical confidentiality (and device certification) for telemedicine?

Asterisk Swarm: Intelligent, Self-healing & Geo-distributed
The world of containerized applications continue to evolve at a dizzying pace. Docker open-source is now a subset of the Moby Project, Kubernetes continues to build out their vast range of features, and everybody is talking about them both. But what does this mean for you, the Asterisk administrator or developer, who doesn't have time to follow the constant churning? This talk will go into depth on how to deploy a geographical distributed cluster of Asterisk machines utilizing Docker Swarm. We'll cover everything from initially bootstrapping the swarm through deploying to multiple DigitalOcean datacenters, how we can automatically route SIP traffic to the closest server to the endpoint, and what happens when a node fails. We'll cover the self-healing and intelligent aspects of Swarm routing and how they can be leverage to avoid downtime and scale up quickly. The goal of this talk is to leave you with concrete, actionable steps you can take to Swarm-ize your own Asterisk installation.

How To Sell the Way Buyer's Buy Today: Utilizing the Inbound Sales Process
Today's world is unimaginable without the internet. We buy products, file our taxes, pay bills, apply for jobs, stream entertainment and communicate with people all around the world over it. But this isn't the way things always were. Think about what it was like to buy a product before the internet existed. Buyers actually needed salespeople to help them make a buying decision. The internet changed everything. And it turned the buyer-seller relationship upside down. Today, the information a buyer needs to make a purchase decision is just a click away. The power in buying and selling has shifted to the buyer from the seller. Keeping up with today's empowered buyer means that the sales process needs to change too. Whether your sales process relies on inbound leads or targeted outreach, whether you're a big or small company, whether your product is simple or complex, inbound sales is relevant. Attend this session and learn: 1. The difference between 'Legacy' sales and the 'Inbound' sales process. 2. The three stages of the Buyer's Journey. 3. How to develop a sales process that supports your buyer through the journey. 4. The Inbound Sales Methodology. 5. Incorporating social media into your selling process.

Super powers of deployment tools for VoIP Systems
Continuous deployment is a very important part of our development process. Every single change we commit in config and code should go in production as soon as possible. Since we do so we have a better understanding of side effects and stability of our platform. We needed an automatic way of pushing changes live. Tools like puppet, ansible, github, jenkins and debian packet management are helping us with this task.

Large scale dialers: performance and solutions
Mojo Lingo has developed multiple high-throughput outbound dialer solutions based on Asterisk and other components. Over the course of those projects, we acquired a solid knowledge of how to best scale them by utilizing specific configurations, modules, and components such as message queues and Adhearsion. The application layer is then compounded by specific tools that enable us to do autoscaling and real time monitoring, with a focus on self-healing and node recovery. The presentation is about our journey to 1000 calls per second, and will be divided in three sections: numbers and statistics will be presented first, to introduce the discussion. Following that, echnical recommendations will show what our choices were, and how they were made, both inside and around Asterisk. The third section will be an exploration of the load testing and monitoring tooling used during development, from SIPp to higher-level tools... and even Asterisk itself can be very useful as an user agent! Finally, I would like to present our "top 10 scaling tricks" to be applied to any application, not just an outbound dialer.

Exceeding the capacities of widely-used Asterisk management UIs can result in a painful experience.  Designed for typical SMB deployments, their performance under large-scale conditions can be challenging and has numerous practical limitations...  This case study explores a large College campus environment and Voneto's deployment of Asterisk with a management framework based on Asterisk realtime.  We'll discuss development, customer-requested modifications, and rollout experience.   As this was also a large deployment of Digium handsets, we'll explore the rollout experience and also discuss a number of custom phone and directory apps designed to enhance the end-user experience.  Whether a first-time user of Digium handsets or contemplating a deployment that exceeds the capabilities of traditional Asterisk UIs, we'll have something for you.

10 Things Your Callers Will Never Tell You About Your IVR
Callers have grown accustomed to complicated phone trees -- they seem almost like a necessary evil which goes along with the territory when you decide to *call* a company. Allison Smith -- the voice of Asterisk, as well as many other platforms -- is on the front lines of IVR, voicing systems every day for every industry imaginable. She has been on a crusade to get IVR developers to really *think* about the IVR -- what is says about the company and *how* is says it. Callers lose their patience, they become powerless, and they are ultimately frustrated when a phone tree is labyrinthine and complicated. This presentation takes a look at the top 10 things that callers will never tell you about your phone system -- and ways to address them.

Anatomy of a Babelfish. Using ARI and speech technologies to build a "real time" call interpreter
Nowadays speech-based telephony applications are gaining popularity due to all possible areas where they can be used. Transactional IVRs, automatic notifications, and custom telephony applications are common scenarios where this technology can be found. Likewise, the use of cloud-based speech technologies has been increasing thanks to the cost-benefit ratio derived from the affordable pricing and excellent quality making them the straightforward way to build speech applications quickly and easily. The main idea is to combine ARI, ASR, TTS and translation services to make a live demonstration of an almost real-time call interpreter.

Asterisk and Multi-Factor Authentication
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a common way to reduce account takeover on websites (and apparently on Asterisk machines as well). While almost everyone knows how to use Asterisk to make automated phone calls that announce the user it’s 4-6 digits code, Not everyone knows how to use Asterisk to bypass just that. This talk will present two relationships between Asterisk and MFA: Using MFA to protect your Asterisk AND using Asterisk to bypass E-commerce MFA while focusing on following subjects: 1. How to use MFA solution to protect your Asterisk system from unauthorized phone calls, including implementation for the following scenarios: * Requiring MFA upon agent login/DISA. * Requiring MFA when originating suspicious phone calls. * `MFA everywhere` when needed. 2. How to use Selenium (browser automation tool) and Asterisk to automatically bypass MFA on websites: * Why does websites use MFA? * Short introduction to Selenium. * How to automate the reception of a verification code through phone call using Asterisk and a cloud native language analysis service. * How to protect YOUR website’s MFA from such tricks. This session features multiple code samples and live demos.

Facilitating WebRTC access to Asterisk-based services with Janus
Janus is an open source WebRTC server that was conceived to be modular in nature, a bit like Asterisk itself. It has a core that takes care of all the WebRTC suite, and different plugins that can take care of the Janus API transports and how to handle media in different ways, e.g., WebRTC SFU/MCU, RTP-to-WebRTC broadcasting, SIP gatewaying, recording and so on. One particularly common scenario is using it as a WebRTC gateway in front of Asterisk servers. While Asterisk has good support for WebRTC by itself, there may be cases when unencumbering it from any WebRTC-related effort, and leverage such a gateway instead to let Asterisk focus on the rest, might be helpful, and this talk is aimed at discussing exactly those. Different approaches and possible topologies will be presented, together with real examples of how Janus and Asterisk are used together in the wild today (e.g., to stream IETF meetings).

Penetrating the Government with your Products & Services
Why do we believe having a GSA contract is so important? Have you ever tried to rent a car without a credit card? The same scenario exists. The government cannot just buy from you. You need a contract vehicle for the buyer to place an order against. A GSA contract is the fastest and easiest way to get a 'number' to make the buyer's job easier. Many companies believe that simply registering with SAM (System for Award Management) will net you business. Nothing could be further from the truth. SAM registration is required before you can do business with the government, that's all. You must have a contract vehicle for the buyer to place an order against. Get started now with your own GSA contract. The myth is that a company can succeed without a contract and continue to accept open market orders of $3,000 or less. This violates the CICA (Competition in Contracting Act) and is illegal for multiple purchases. The buyer must combine these requirements and place an order with a contract holder. Do not get caught in this web, get your GSA contract now.

Deploy Asterisk anywhere/everywhere with Libcloud
There are lots of cloud service providers out there. Each provider has it's own APIs and deployment-script formats. Binding yourself to one provider and it's deployment methods could become an issue later on and using containers (Docker, etc.) is not always the right/appropriate solution. One might decide to use DigitalOcean when one's solution requires only a couple of machines but would like to move to AWS when it needs to scale. Apache Libcloud (https://libcloud.apache.org/) provides one interface to over 50 cloud providers. Using one interface allows you to automate your deployment process once, regardless of the provider you chose and if you decide to migrate to a different provider - the change is almost as easy as changing credentials. This session will introduce the attendees to Libcloud and will compare the deployment script's structure to other industry standards (such as AWS's Cloudformation). After the introduction we'll go over the following subjects (hands-on!): * A libcloud deployment script for Asterisk and how it works. * How to manage resources-discovery using libcloud and DNS * Few practices for monitoring new deployments & sending notifications. AND: * A live demo(!!) in which we'll deploy Asterisk in parallel on two different cloud providers - Which will ring first?

Machine Learning for Asterisk: DeepSpeech & More
Within the last year we've seen a proliferation of services spring up (IBM Watson, Google Speech API, Amazon Lex) that help make machine learning accessible to a far wider audience. At the same time, open-source frameworks have also been evolving to fill these roles at a lightening pace -- and with fantastic results. This talk will dive into this ecosystem of ASR, TTS, and NLU frameworks, including DeepSpeech and WaveNet, and highlight their practicality in the real world. Knowledge of machine learning isn't required to understand the concepts and practical applications. Demonstrations of these frameworks in action can help illuminate the possibilities and challenges of utilizing the DIY approach. Many companies would benefit from having a tailored solution to even just one of the above -- perhaps you want your own custom TTS voice, or need sentiment analysis on stored voicemails or customer service calls. Pick and choose and make your machine learning dreams come true.

Asterisk as a Network Function in an NFV world
Asterisk, and its user base, stands poised to be a powerful force in the oncoming rush of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies that are sweeping the telecom industry at large. There isn't an Asterisk user or contributor worth their salt that's afraid of replacing a proprietary hardware solution with a virtualized open-source solution based on Asterisk. We know it can be done, and have been doing it for years. The sustainability of open source solutions are an invisible hand moving the telecom industry forward at a lightning pace. Our community, the Asterisk community, is ahead of the curve. We already know how Asterisk can be used to fill a variety of telephony solutions; from PBX, to IVR, to tandem switch and beyond. Armed with the right tools and knowledge -- our community can become leaders in telephony Virtual Network Functions. Leif Madsen and Doug Smith of the NFV Partner Engineering Team at Red Hat, Inc. have been collaborating on a VNF (virtual network function) based on Asterisk to dually explore telephony VNFs (for examples, SBCs) and also in use in a continuous integration environment to validate infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) environments. The project, VNF-Asterisk is capable of being deployed in a variety of situations -- from manual deploys, to Ansible-managed virtual machines on OpenStack, to running in containers on Kubernetes and OpenShift. Doug and Leif are coming to Astricon to hold a hands on day-of-learning to get into the details of VNF-Asterisk. This session is to review a workshop held during the devcon, and explain why the Asterisk community is in a unique position to lead the charge in telephony for NFV. The workshop is held to arm our community with the tools to create carrier-grade Asterisk-based NFV solutions using open source cloud-native platforms such as OpenStack and OpenShift (Kubernetes).in

Asterisk goes mobile: Use-Cases for Asterisk in VoLTE and IMS networks
A popular topic among mobile network operators around the world is VoLTE and IMS. The reasons for this is simple: Using VoLTE allows you to use your spectrum more efficiently while the overall total cost of the network is cheaper compared to 2G and 3G. In the recent years, we’ve been working hard on making Kamailio capable to support VoLTE & IMS on (not only) mobile networks. However, since Kamailio is “SIP only”, you will need other components in order to provide value added services or to simply connect to other networks. This is where Asterisk comes into the picture. In one of our recent deployments of VoLTE & IMS in a mobile network, we’ve replaced several components of our platform with the latest LTS release of Asterisk. In this talk, I will shed some light on the different use-cases where we use Asterisk in this project and why we had huge benefits from using Asterisk instead of other solutions. You will learn about the different use-cases, how to deploy them using Asterisk and why and where using Asterisk makes sense. Additionally, you will get an impression of the Architecture of VoLTE and mobile networks.

Experiment of evaluation technique to data divorcing on communication software
For effective utilization of resource, OPEX reduction and disasiter tolerance, the data divorcing system that is divorced data from process is recently built with virtualization technology and cloud technology. In the core network built by IMS model, the architecture is defined that HSS and CSCF are built on difference physical servers. The CSCF servers can process any user request, because the CSCF servers does not have subscriber data. So the architecture makes the CSCF servers possible to load sharing with the REGISTER effective period. However the architecture is not adequate to meet the demand from increasing services(e.g. M2M,IoT). For meeting the demand, enhanced architecture that is divorcing subscriber and call data is proposed. But I think there are some problem. In this session, I explain evaluation technique to the architecture, and experiments with Asterisk.

Effective Communication in the Work Place

How often have you heard the phrase "For a communications company, we don't communicate very well!"? Kenneth O'Neal has the solution...

“Effective Communication” in the Workplace must change from a Parent/Child relationship to an Adult/Adult mature conversation requiring critical agreements. There are rights and responsibilities for all parties. All lives matter and are treated well. These are learned skills.

  1. The whole organization must come before personal ambition

  2. Honest, truthful openness to others’ opinions raises difficult issues; focus on results

  3. Control emotional responses and obtain full information about organization

  4. Make a choice about accountability for organization and understand business reasons

  5. Each member manages their morale, motivation and commitment; supporting others does not take emotional responsibility; no blaming, no condemning, no criticism, no complaining A powerful adult position would be: “As I reflect on this situation, I acknowledge my contribution.”

Case studies will be provided with facts showing a significant increase in productivity.

Asterisk: The many faced software. How I tailored Asterisk for a small international company
A case study which demonstrates the versatility of asterisk. I work in a firm with 300 plus users and 9 offices across the globe each with a redundant set of asterisk servers. We initially had a mishmash of PBXs and held off of building asterisk platform from scratch thinking that it would be too much development and management however with the use of mercurial, some automation and deployment via ansible and tower we are able to push through new features and changes like never imagined before and immediately across the network. We had unusual challenges being a small company with a global footprint with offices that don't have robust internet connections due to their locations and needed a tailor made solution. We also set up dedicated mediaservers to handle voicemail and conference calls via a custom app based on confbridge. Through the use of phoneprov we manage devices and are able to finally keep these up to date and rotate device username/passwords. With SIPp we automated most testing and through the use of Homer we track sessions. We're looking forward to expand on all this with WebRTC and as asterisk implements more video capabilities e.g. confbridge SFU . In short, asterisk can look daunting at first but there is a incredible amount that it can do and if I managed to make it work for us there is no reason others can't too.

High Availability and Load Balancing at the edge of your VoIP platform: DNS, heartbeat, anycast
One of the critical points in a VoIP infrastructure are the proxies located at the edge of the platform, whose job is to dispatch calls towards the core of the platform in a reliable manner. But how do you ensure calls are reaching the edge proxy anyways? This talk presents a few mechanisms one can use to ensure high availability and load balancing for the edge proxies of your platform. We will discuss about DNS failover, heartbeat, anycast and other mechanisms that can achieve these features, their pros and cons, and when should each of them be used.

Enterprise Call Analysis and Generic Call Description
Did you ever ask yourself how well your call workflows match customer needs? Or what kind of call application your users appreciate the most? Then this session might be for you! We'd like to share our experiences with designing an application for realtime analysis of Asterisk calls. The application is called TPA (Telephone Process Analysis) and analyzes technical call logfiles/databases in order to extract any details useful for further call process evaluation. The ultimate goal is to not only evaluate Asterisk calls, but also to incorporate the call processes of other communication systems used in our call center and remote offices, enabling an enterprise-wide evaluation of communication processes. The technical challenge is to semantically analyze proprietary call data and re-model interesting details in a generic way, so that statistical data of different systems can be connected and evaluated comprehensively. Though this is not decided yet, we are considering to publish this work as open source once it has reached a reasonable maturity level. Key topics: - Business motivation for call analysis - Evaluating enterprise communication processes - Evaluating usage patterns - Identifying bottlenecks and technical problems - Improving business workflows and system setup - Design basics for call analysis - Data Collecting - Sorting & Filtering - Semantic analysis - Generic re-modeling / abstraction - Customized export filters - Asterisk specific call analysis - Data sources (CEL, CDR, Queue) - Characteristics and relations of internal Asterisk IDs - Limitations and solutions in multi-server environments - Simple vs. difficult call scenarios - Ideas for generic call description - Scope and validity of IDs - Cross-system call identification (SIP/Infrastructure) - Elementary call phases and attributes - Extensible data model design

Porting Vicidial to Asterisk 13 and AMI version 2+
A discussion of the necessary steps needed to port Vicidial to Asterisk 13 and AMI version 2+. Vicidial is an Asterisk based application dating to before Asterisk 1.0 was even released. There is a large amount of code to deal with the various idiocentricities of early Asterisk versions and long standing assumptions of how Asterisk handles certain functionality. Many of these aspects have changed in recent Asterisk versions. For instance Local channels no longer optimize in the same manner. As such several core processes within Vicidial have needed a complete rewrite to deal with these changes. This discussion will go over the changes that were necessary to get Vicidial to function properly with Asterisk 13. Key points that will be discussed: * Overview of how Vicidial's core functions * Changes to the AMI and how it affected the core * Changes to how Local channels behave and the steps necessary to deal with the changes * Dealing with under documented, legacy code written 14 years prior * Lessons learned

This session will be divided into three topics: 1. Maintaining state of Asterisk (snapshot). This topic will explain how we created a service that digests all the input from AMI and keeps relevant data in memory so that clients (web, mobile, desktop) can consume it without asking Asterisk every time. 2. Abstraction layer. This topic will explain how we created our own API that hides the background complexity of Asterisk. 3. Multi-tenancy and event filtering. In this topic we will explain how we solved the problem of event filtering per user and company (tenant).

Anyone can TALK about tech - but it takes skill to DEMO tech live in front of an audience.'

Performing with elements of high tech (such as Asterisk and the latest unsupported features of Open Source Real Time Communications applications) using Conference WiFi in front of an audience of some of the best comms hackers in the World can be likened to descending the Cresta Run on a Skeleton Bobsleigh - it is risky and dangerous, but if you survive the experience the buzz that you get is just incredible.

Dangerous Demos are aimed to give presenters the chance to experience this rush - whilst providing an exciting, energising, electrifying, engaging and even educational series of lightning presentations to a live audience.  Each speaker has precisely THREE minutes to show off their technology, with prizes being awarded to the Most Entertaining, Most Popular (by audience vote - using a very novel and risky voting system) and Most Ridiculously Risky (aka Crash and Burn) presentations.
