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 voice communications server. Switchvox is the award-winning, Unified Communications (UC) solution built on the power of Asterisk with thousands of installations worldwide. Digium’s VoIP solutions provide a competitive edge for small, mid-sized and large businesses.
Digium’s premises-based and Cloud solutions provide for a competitive edge for small, mid-sized and large business. Digium’s product lines include Asterisk custom communications, Switchvox and Switchvox Cloud UC, and a family of HD IP phones that deliver enterprise-class features at a price businesses can afford.
VS: What products will you be featuring at this year’s IT EXPO and will you be unveiling anything new?
Digium: At this year’s ITEXPO Digium will be showcasing Switchvox (on-premise and hosted) along with the Digium family of phones. The combination of the Switchvox system and the Digium phones provides a complete communications solution for small and medium businesses.
The Unified Communication system integrates all your office communications; including phone, chat and web mashups. Stop by the booth in the Asterisk Pavilion to lean how you can customize your communications right down to the phone.
We also have an exciting announcement to make during IT Expo which will make Switchvox Cloud the best value in the UCaaS industry by drastically reducing the startup costs for our Cloud-based solution.

The TE133 and TE134 are the most recent single span telephony card solution from Digium, and VoIP Supply gives you a first look at the Asterisk company’s cards.
What is it?
The Digium 1TE133F PCI-e and Digium 1TE134F PCI are new telephony cards for seamless PTSN connectivity to VoIP. These single span cards use state of the art technology to increase overall consistent phone quality and system performance, including features such as toll-bypass adjuncts for legacy TDX PBXs, SIP trunk interface for legacy TDM systems and small call center ACDs with T1/E1 trunks.
From these single T1 digital telephony cards, you can expect:
Up to 24 (T1/J1) or 30 (E1) simultaneous calls
Selectable T1, E1 or J1 Mode / Half-Length, Half-Height, Digital Card
One (1) RJ48 Interface Port
Protocol support includes: ISDN PRI, Robbed-Bit, CAS
Digium TE133 and TE134 cards are designed to support T1/E1/PRI environments and industry standard telephony protocols, mainly Primary Rate ISDN protocol families for voice in North America and Euro standards. Octasic DSP hardware echo cancellation is built directly into the cards which removes the task of echo cancellation from the system’s CPU card, improving efficiency in your VoIP system.
As these cards are created by the makers of Asterisk, you can feel confident about 100% interoperability, straight from the source. Digium wants you to feel comfortable with your purchase, so even though we all know you’ll love it, Digium offers a no-risk ESP guarantee that if qualifying Digium products don’t perform 100% as designed, Digium will refund the product. That’s confidence.
Who is it for?
The TE133 and TE134 are designed for Asterisk and it’s open source drivers, so basically, anyone with an existing legacy system looking to upgrade to VoIP. Digium cards have been tested with major server hardware platforms like Dell, HP and IBM, as well as hardware platforms with chipsets like AMD, Intel, VIA and Nvidia. Being designed by Asterisk, Digium cards are compatible with all version of Asterisk using the DAHDI driver framework. Asterisk and DAHDI are available for free from the Asterisk.org website.
