ISDN adapter available, preference panes added

Sunrise Telephone Systems has announced its 2010 version of Asterisk for Mac OS X. The software is a port of the Linux version, and allows a Mac to host a private branch exchange -- PBX -- telephone system and VoIP server. An optional ISDN adapter brings compatibility with ISDN telephone lines. It offers features like auto-attendant, call forwarding, call screening and call transfers. It also has interactive voice response menus, music-on-hold, call conferencing, voicemail, voicemail-by-email and IP phone support.

The 2010 version ships with a telephony server, an auto-starter, a configuration engine and a switchboard application. It features system preference panes that aid in easily setting up the server on a Mac. The server component is based in Xcode with Linux APIs replaced by native Mac equivalents.

The 2010 edition is expected to ship in Japan in December, with English version shipping in early 2011. The software requires Mac OS X 10.5 and 512MB of RAM for low call volumes, with 1GB of RAM required for high call volume usage. Pricing estimates are $580 without the ISDN adapter and $915 with the adapter.
