Digium (www.digium.com) played the numbers game last week. The company bragged about having Asterisk downloaded more than two million times for 2010.
Other stats out of the Digium press release include more than 9,800 people who have contributed code to Asterisk, in use in over 170 countries today with an estimate of about one million active servers and “Billions” of minutes of phone calls.
And let’s not forget the list of highlights, including the release of Asterisk 1.8, the Asterisk Scalable Communications Framework (SCF) – quite easily the most important piece of work out of the company in the past four years – and something about Gartner Magic Quadrant visionaries mumble-mumble.
I’m more interested to see uptake and applications done via SCF over the next six months. Give us your stats, your case studies, your cool projects taking over the world of IP communications, Digium!
