Get Ready for Japanese Version of Asterisk

Lora Bentley

Voip News reports today that open source PBX provider and Asterisk developer Digium has inked a deal with Japanese telco NTT. Under the agreement, NTT will develop a Japanese version of Asterisk for distribution with its ProgOffice PBX offering, which is targeted to SMBs.

 

The fact that Asterisk is in English has hampered its ability to move into foreign markets until now, a Digium representative says, but the NTT deal will help the company demonstrate that Asterisk is ready for the mainstream.

 

The company's recent focus on the SMB market and the NTT agreement are both results of a personnel shakeup that took place earlier this year when former Adtran chief Danny Windham took the reins. Founder Mark Spencer is now Digium's chairman and CTO.
