Driver support for Dialogic DNI cards


I have a requirement of using Asterisk with Dialogic’s HMP interface boards (DNI cards) for a telco deployment. Dialogic’s website lists support only for the Diva Server family of cards. No mention of support for the DNI host media processing cards.

There is little information from Digium on the support for these cards. Only some very dated posts mentioning the possibility of support using chan_dialogic driver. These posts date back to 2004-05, so I’m not sure about the status of this driver. One post mentions that this driver is bundled with Asterisk Business Edition. The Digium representative could not confirm this.

Can anyone comment on the status of driver support in Asterisk for Dialogic DNI cards (DNI/300, DNI/2410, etc.)? If supported, how does one get this?
