3 Questions with Digium About ITEXPO

We spoke with Lee Marlow, Distribution Account Manager for Digium, about what to expect at this year’s ITEXPO.

VoIP Supply:  For those who aren’t familiar with your company, can you tell us a little bit about Digium?

Digium:  Digium is the creator, primary developer and sponsor of Asterisk, the world’s most widely used open source communications software.

Asterisk turns an ordinary computer into a feature-rich …

Business, Government and Healthcare facilities all have one thing in common: They’re concerned about the safety of their employees, their patrons, students, or patients inside their building.  Everyone is also looking to cut costs.  There’s no reason to choose one over the other; with an IP Paging system, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Is your VoIP phone system secured against attacks?

LA Times writer Paresh Dave reported that a San Diego hospital was the victim of a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS) when an “extortionist who, probably using not much more than a laptop and cheap software, had single-handedly generated enough calls to tie up the lines.”

For two days phone lines appeared busy to the outside world.

Who Is Affected?

David writes that according to vague mentions in law enforcement documents telecom industry insiders, there have been a range of VoIP victims including:

  • Hospitals, nursing homes, and medical centers
  • A public safety agency and an emergency operations center
  • A manufacturer
  • Wall Street firms
  • Schools
  • Media

The Grandstream UCM6100 is a series of 4 new IP PBXs that have been targeted at …
