Asterisk is a software application created by Digium, a company based in Alabama. Asterisk connects multiple telephone extensions -- such as the ones within a company's site -- to one another and to external telephone and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) connections. The Quintum Tenor line of VoIP switches connects standard telephone and fax equipment to VoIP networks. You can configure Asterisk to work with a Quintum Tenor in order to have the Quintum Tenor route calls between the telephone network, Asterisk and the IP network.
