GSM modem and Asterisk

Hello All,

Can we connect a gsm modem with asterisk?
if so what are the drivers needed for it and which hardware is the best for it?
Will be thankful if any one give the configuration tips too.

We got one GSM modem - connection through USB. It offers sound card and AT interfaces through USB. ANd there is celliax - nice channel which could be added to Asterisk and then you can use GSM modem - for inbound and outbound calls. It is possible to send and receive SMS also.
Our modem - Mobigater developed from Bulgarian company:
eudesignbg.com/index.html
There are couple of problems with that device - it sometimes reboots, and then we have to restart Asterisk, or I will change Celliax to make adequate reinitialization of Moobigater.
But hope there are other devices at competitive price.
By the way - there are GSM gateways which can connect to Asterisk though LAN - meaning they have embeded SIP client.
The cons is - they are more expensive.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.I saw (MobiGater S4 – 4 GSM Module ) have asterisk compatibility. Celliax is the channel driver right?.Any way will give a try on it.

Yes - celliax handles Mobigater and many other GSM modems.
