AstriCon 2016

The Asterisk Users Conference – AstriCon – is taking place in Glendale, Arizona, during September 27-29, 2016.
With a consistent group of VoIP community using both Kamailio and Asterisk projects, Kamailio will have again a strong presence on site this year, including the participation in the expo floor, coordinated this edition by Fred Posner.
Along with him, you may meet around Torrey Searle, Nir Simionovich, Joran Vinzens and others that can answer your questions about Kamailio and Asterisk. Like in the past editions, several presentations will touch the use of Kamailio and integration with Asterisk — see agenda.
It is definitely a must-attend event if you are looking to build flexible real time communications using Kamailio and Asterisk, or even beyond that, there are not many places around the world where you can find so much VoIP knowledge at the same time along the year!

    Kamailio – 15 Years of Development

    Fifteen years ago, on September 3, 2001, inside Fraunhofer Fokus Research Institute, first commit to the source code repository of Kamailio has been made by Andrei Pelinescu-Onciul:
    Here are the references to the first three commits:
    # git log --pretty=format:"%h%x09%an%x09%ad%x09%s" --reverse | head -3
    512dcd9 Andrei Pelinescu-Onciul Mon Sep 3 21:27:11 2001 +0000 Initial revision
    888ca09 Andrei Pelinescu-Onciul Tue Sep 4 01:41:39 2001 +0000 parser seems to work
    e60a972 Andrei Pelinescu-Onciul Tue Sep 4 20:55:41 2001 +0000 First working release
    The project was initially named SIP Express Router (aka SER), years later – after a fork, a rename and a merge – it converged into into what is now the Kamailio project. It has been a fabulous journey so far, in a more than ever challenging market of real time communications.
    Well known for its performances, flexibility and stability, Kamailio has set a relevant footprint in open source and open communications, enabling entities world wide to prototype, launch new services and build scalable businesses, research and innovate in real time communications. More over, the project has succeeded to create an amazing community of users and contributors, the real engine behind its successful evolution.
    Its time to celebrate the moment, everyone involved deserving it — thank you all!
    In a few months the project will deliver v5.0.0, its 16th public major release, with a restructuring of the source tree to match current modern approaches and more flexibility in choosing the language for building the desired SIP routing rules. Stay tuned!
    Thank you for flying Kamailio!

    VUC – SER-Kamailio At 15 Years

    This week on Friday, September 2, 2016, we will join the VoIP Users Conference (VUC) moderated by Randy Resnick for an open discussion about the evolution of Kamailio project.
    On September 3, 2001, the fist commit was pushed for what was then SIP Express Router (SER) project at Fraunhofer FOKUS Research Institute in Berlin, Germany, project that evolved over the time in what is now Kamailio.
    A lot of great things happened along the way, there were also some not-very-pleasant moments, but hey, that’s life! Join us to listen or share such moments — if Kamailio made your live easy or bad, if you have a funny story to tell or a photo/video to share, you are welcome on board!
    We started the celebration at Kamailio World Conference 2016, now we gather online of a non-technical debate of whether the project succeeded to deliver on its promises.
    Several people already confirmed the participation, like Alex Balashov, Daniel-Constantin Mierla and Fred Posner. We expect VUC regulars such as James Body to be around.
    Anyone can connect to VUC and listen audio or watch the video session via SIP or YouTube live streaming. For more details see:
    Should you want to actively participate in the discussion, contact us via email at registration [at] in order to plan a bit the structure. Last minute joining is also possible, but a matter of capacity for the video conferencing system.
    Thank you for flying Kamailio!
