Asterisk Training Course

As Digium certified training partners Telappliant in association with TeleSpeak are offering 2 new Asterisk courses, the Asterisk Fast Start and the Asterisk Advanced for both the beginner and the more advanced student. Either get up to speed quickly on Asterisk technology or expand your knowledge of Asterisk with us.

What is Asterisk?

Asterisk is the world's leading open source PBX, telephony engine, and telephony applications toolkit. Offering flexibility unheard of in the world of proprietary communications, Asterisk empowers developers and integrators to create advanced communication solutions... for free. It is also one of the most celebrated emerging technologies and demand is great for experts in the field.

Asterisk Fast Start Course

Course Goal
The goal of this course is to familiarize students with Asterisk and the environment in which it operates, both in terms of operating system and telephony (traditional and IP) connections — and to acquaint participants with the installation, configuration and basic operation of Asterisk. This course will take students (who do not need to have previous experience with Linux, telephony or Asterisk) from a freshly installed Linux PC through to a fully configured and working Asterisk implementation.

Asterisk Fast Start Course - details

The emphasis is on the practical implementation, and not necessarily a detailed understanding of every element of an Asterisk deployment or the detailed workings of the underlying technologies involved — this can be obtained, if desired, subsequent to the course by further research.

At the end of the training class, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the purpose and primary functionality of Asterisk as a PBX and as an application development platform
  • List the functionality associated with a traditional PBX
  • Explain the background to Asterisk in terms of the history of Digium and the Open Source community of which it is a part
  • Define the operating system environments in which Asterisk is developed and supported
  • Describe the telephony connections which Asterisk supports and identify the Digium hardware needed to effect this connectivity
  • Identify the basic characteristics of analog and digital PSTN connections and how VoIP compares and contrasts with these
  • Install and run Asterisk from the packages available for download from www.asterisk.org
  • Configure Asterisk to deliver basic PBX functionality including basic call routing, voicemail and directory services
  • Learn the basics of Linux in order to be an effective Asterisk administrator

Course Prerequisites
This is an entry-level course; there are no prerequisites to attend this training.

Course Format
The Asterisk Fast Start course is a three-day course. The class will consist of a combination of lectures and lab exercises.

The labs will be presented in a workbook which the student gets to keep. The lecture notes and sample configurations will also be included. As each lab and lecture builds on the results of the previous lab and lecture, the workbook is a great way for students to work through the process at their own pace, as well as ensure that they have learned all the relevant material.

Asterisk Advanced

The Asterisk Advanced course is a five day hands-on course which covers the knowledge and skills that an advanced Asterisk administrator should know to be effective at his or her job. It is a combination of both lectures and labs designed to give the students both the theory behind the concepts and the hands-on experience to be able to effectively deploy Asterisk-based solutions.

Students will learn to create advanced dial plans and create innovative telephony solutions by using the features of Asterisk. Along the way, students will also get important insight into Voice over IP, and how to design robust VoIP networks. Students will also explore connecting Asterisk to a variety of devices, including analog phones and phone lines, digital phone lines, and VoIP providers.

Asterisk Advanced Course - details
