Experience with the Skype for Asterisk Beta

Suggested by Webmaster on Friday February 27, 2009

Recently Digium was kind enough to include me in the closed Skype for Asterisk Beta. Skype for Asterisk is a new channel driver for Asterisk that connects to the Skype Peer to Peer network. While you could connect Asterisk to Skype in the past, this was all done with a hack to the Skype client, which limited scale and reliability. The new channel driver for Asterisk, actually does away with a client and allows Asterisk to become a peer node in the Skype network. This will be a much more scalable solution, and definitely easier to deploy.
