Asterisk 1.6.1 on openSUSE 11.1 (Part 3)

To enable asterisk to communicate with PSTN lines we should have either a VOIP-PSTN gateway or FXO card. I will not explain about VOIP-PSTN gateway, there are some service providers out there who provides this service for their customers. In my work I use Digium TDM 410P with 4 FXO port per card. There are some alternatives in the market like Sangoma, Rhino, etc, the important is we should make sure that it works with Asterisk either with dahdi driver or zaptel/zapata driver. Also if possible select the card that already has hardware echo-canceler. Echo is a problem in voip communication, and if you have card with no echo-canceler than your server CPU will busy do the job.

Just remember that Digium cards are no longer use zapata driver, and some changes has been made to the configuration file name and location, /etc/zaptel.conf become /etc/dahdi/system.conf and /etc/asterisk/zapata.conf become /etc/asterisk/chan_dahdi.conf

In the client site you can use any SIP client hardwares or softwares. Ekiga and Emphaty are the good choice for you who prefer GTK libraries and KCall and KPhone are for you who prefer Qt libraries. IP phone hardware now widely available in the market from cheap to high price, you can select any brand as long as it compatibles with Asterisk. In this project I choose Polycom IP-330, I also used Grandstream and Aastra in other implementation. In this implementation the owner also ask me to use Polycom KIRK Wireless Server 600V3 with Polycom DECT Handset 3040.

Now the time for the dialplan, extensions.conf, which is the core of asterisk implementation, as an example let me introduce you with my configuration. It is a good habit to always backup default asterisk configuration, and start the new configuration from the scratch.

My extensions.conf is:

; extensions.conf - the Asterisk dial plan
; Created by M. Edwin Z for xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
; Static extension configuration file, used by              
; the pbx_config module. This is where you configure all your
; inbound and outbound calls in Asterisk.                    
; This configuration file is reloaded                        
; - With the "dialplan reload" command in the CLI            
; - With the "reload" command (that reloads everything) in the CLI

Remarkable Year 2018 for openSUSE Indonesia Community

Year 2018 is a remarkable year for the Indonesian openSUSE community. There are quite a lot of our achievements as a community that make us proud. As a long time person in this community, I feel that there are quite a lot of young people who can be role models for future generations. Even though the dominance of "you again" cannot be denied, because the same people are also activists in BlankON, LibreOfficeID, Glib, and other communities, it does not reduce my admiration for their militancy towards the spread of FOSS use in Indonesia.

One of openSUSE community friend once said to me, the first step is the most difficult. When I started using Linux in 1997 no one used it at my workplace. I have been using Unix for about 2 years and it happens that many GNU software is also used on both operating systems so the commands are not so weird for me. But it is very difficult to find people to have direct discussion at that time. At present the obstacles that I felt before seemed to b…

In Search of Manohara

I always write note in my laptop and put it somewhere either on disk or cloud when I think there is an interesting experience. I found this 7 years old note when I try to clear some space in my disk, and before I wipe it out from my disk I think it is an interesting story to share with you. This happened in 2011, at that time I was working to build Linux based computer labs for 500 elementary and junior high schools in Yogyakarta Indonesia. No it is not about computer and other geeky stuff. So here it is. 

Well, it is very out of topic everyone, you've already been warned 😁

During my busy weeks in implementing openSUSE Li-f-e for schools in Yogyakarta Indonesia (see the pictures below), me and one of my colleague use our free time in a Sunday afternoon to visit Borobudur, the biggest Buddhist temple in the world. One of the World Heritage preserve by Unesco. 85% of Indonesia population are Moslem and this make Indonesia the biggest Moslem country in the world. We are tolerant…

openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017

openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017 was held at University of Electro Communication (UEC) Chofu Tokyo on October 20-22, 2017. Japan is an advance developed country. Tokyo is a big city that can be compared with other major big cities in the world. While it is not the first time for me to go to Tokyo, I was so excited when the committee approved my talk, and openSUSE, as always, give me TSP to come to the event.

During the preparation we have  online meeting every week since February 15, 2017. I was so happy to help the preparation of this yearly openSUSE Summit for Asia Region. Indonesia community also contribute to provide the online voting for the logo contest this year through the voting site.

On the midnight on October 17, 2017 together with my friend Estu Fardani, I went to Tokyo.

It was 7 hours long flight. While almost half of the flight was so bumpy because the initiation of Lan Cyclone, in the morning of October 18, 2017 I enjoyed the clear sky with the golden hour in Japan air around…
