*** Asterisk Solutions Showcase
For the first year, we're running an Asterisk Solutions Showcase on Astricon! This will be part of the Astricon Exhibition. Asterisk-related Open Source projects will be able to showcase their solutions in this area. Also, if you have a good, funny, scary or just impressive solution based on Asterisk that you want to share, please apply for a booth in the Asterisk Solutions Showcase. Brian Capouch will be there showing Asterisk on Linksys Routers amongst other projects.

Please send proposals describing your solution to no later than july 30th. If you want to show commercial solutions that you sell, you need to buy a booth in the exhibition. Ask for more information by e-mailing

Looking forward to meeting you in Anaheim! Early Bird registrations will open later this week.
