I came across an article on Asterisk in Forbes recently and started to wonder if Asterisk is right for my company. I couldn’t tell by the article whether Asterisk was a fully developed alternative to Avaya and the other guys or, an open source alternative that is useful for individuals or the occasional small company.
I work for a large fortune 500 company and we hand Cisco and Avaya millions of dollars every year. Seems like if Asterisk could legimitately offer everything we get from the big guys it would be foolish to ignore… so can you guys tell me if Asterisk is in the same arena as an Avaya or Cisco? Are there white papers or case studies on larger companies adopting Asterisk?
