Asterisk for PBX administration

Open source apps and software expert Bernard Golden recommends open source Asterisk for PBX administration.

Can you recommend open source software for administering a PBX?

The best-established open source PBX software is Asterisk, which is a fantastic piece of technology. It is available

in many forms, including a version called Asterisk@home which you can burn onto a CD, load into a box and have a working Asterisk installation 30-60 minutes later. Asterisk@home comes with AMP, a graphical management interface and even SugarCRM, which it uses for contact management.
