Astribank is the easy and professional way to
connect Asterisk severs to the world of traditional telephony. It is a
smart channel bank for an Asterisk PBX that provides 32 FXO/FXS ports,
4 input ports and 2 output ports (I/O ports are used for operating
external devices via the telephone and vice versa).
Astribank-32 connects to the Asterisk server via a normal USB-2 device
and does not require shutting down the machine and opening panels.
Astribank-32 has an architecture that was designed for maximum ease in
integration. When used with the Xorcom Rapid distribution or Xorcom TS-1 it is practially “Plug & Play”, unlike any other solution on the market.
Xorcom's driver for Astribank is now officially part of Zaptel. Digium
announced the release of Zaptel 1.2.4 for Asterisk in mid-February.
Among the changes and improvements, they listed the new driver for
Astribank-8 (the first member of the Astribank family) and future
models of Astribank. Read more...
