Five Companies That Came To Win This Week


Open-Source Telephony Upstart Digium Making Channel Inroads

A few years after launching a channel program around Asterisk, Digium now has more than 2,000 partners and launched its own branded VoIP phones in April.

As the company looks to recruit more partners, Angie Reed, Digium's product marketing manager for Switchvox, told CRN Digium will try to get more partners using the Switchvox Extend API, which enables the integration of Switchvox with other business applications through the use of common programming languages such as PHP and PERL.

"We do see quite a few people starting to use it," Reed said. "We see it as a way to do more custom applications."
