  • Talks
    • Yearly Update - Joshua Colp
    • Video Handling - Florian/Maximilian
      • Developing cloud voice/video solution, not typical telephony aspect, use Asterisk as media engine
      • Intercom company
      • Using Kamailio + Asterisk in the cloud, Kamailio as registrar/SBC/LB, Asterisk as media/call engine, using chan_pjsip
      • Using early video
      • Dialplan + func_curl currently
      • ARI based implementation in early dev
      • Physical, mobile, web client
      • Moh_passthrough enabled, SDP offers get confused/incorrect
      • Have patch to do early media video
  • Other Discussion
    • Mailing Lists - Joshua Colp

      • Some people still using mailing lists
      • Fine with moving to alternate solution
        • ARI Usage - Joshua Colp
      • Joran struggling with missing small things, needs better documentation in some areas
      • Joran uncertain regarding transfers in ARI
      • Joran not all creation of objects accepts application, resulting in subscription not occurring so events can be missed
      • Ron issues with push configuration, identify with hostname resolving to multiple, match is reserved name in newer MySQL
      • Pascal set variable and get variable documentation may not mention dialplan functions (yay documentation is actually correct)
      • Yitzchak Pachtman would like to see a SIP NOTIFY mechanism in ARI
      • Mark Petersen AMI SIP NOTIFY issues with PJSIP, specifically custom text
      • Tone functionality not a huge item currently
        • Confbridge Audio Quality Issues - Michael Cargile / Sylvain Boily
      • Only a few clients tested ConfBridge with Vicidial, not fully vetted, few clients that have tested, recordings/client fine, to carrier only every third word, may be load related, packet capture shows certain RTP packets aren't being sent
      • Experienced with Echo dialplan application
      • Local channels are involved
      • Some are virtualized, some physical
      • No packet loss concealment in bridges - Sylvain / Pascal, tried opus (multiple codec implementations) and no luck, packet loss results in large quality degradation, blocked on this issue
      • Sample configuration files value are good to test
      • AGI launching can take time, cause timing issues - Josh
      • Mixing bridge does not allow much configurability in ARI when creating bridge - Johan
      • Freeswitch with bridge + PLC handles packet loss best - Sylvain
        • Codec Translation (from 18) - Mark Petersen
      • I hope to slot in more media stuff here
      • G729 as open source
      • It would be nice to have generic configuration to allow passthrough codecs to be easily added
      • codec_opus and FEC? no change currently
      • Alternate g729 codec modules exist
        • Meetme vs ConfBridge - Michael Cargile
      • Does mixing happen in the dahdi driver? Yes
      • Is it possible to do this same thing in ConfBridge? Yes, but no module written for it
        • MS Teams/AMR - Alexandro Picolini
      • Some people using MS Teams, but outside of Asterisk - Johan
        • WebRTC Better Logging - Yitzchak Pachtman
      • Logging hard to understand, could be better, HTTPS / Websockets
      • fail2ban in FreePBX not triggering on WebRTC, lack of X-Forwarded-For / X-Real-IP
        • Logging for taskprocessors when an overload or issue occurs is insufficient and can be confusing out of the box
        • More prometheus logging and support in general - Mark Petersen
      • Counter for how many error / warning log notices have occurred, can provide insight when things happen
      • Joran using another tool ( that looks at logs and pushes counters via prometheus for this, uses it for log aggregation to central server
        • PJSIP Path - Sylvain Boily
      • Issues present on issue tracker from other reporters
      • Using Kamailio workaround of encoding in Contact the required information
      • Using Kamailio for Websocket SIP socket, using rtpengine for media, easier to scale
        • Geoloc - Sylvain
      • Working very well
      • Encountered crash, double free, will put fix up, will be creating issue
      • Proof of concept to evaluate, not in production as of yet

        • Usage of Debian with Asterisk has been fine - Sylvain, Joran, and Florian
        • Queues - Pitzkey
      • Periodic announcements don't trigger on initial, FreePBX using chanspy which can go over MOH, would be better if it could be done initially

      • ARI makes it considerably easier+ Joran has higher level interface, users don't worry about scaling/SIP/Asterisk/etc
        • Testsuite
      • Mark Petersen runs entire testsuite when doing changes, using Docker
      • Wazo not using Asterisk testsuite, have their own
        • The Future - Joshua Colp
      • No concerns re: Github
      • Media Experience Score
        • Accessibility via ARI would be nice
      • Media negotiation answer forwarding
        • What would be nice
      • PLC for bridges, audio quality improvements, 1 to 1 is fine - Sylvain
      • Bridge module for mixing using DAHDI - Michael Cargile
      • Crash recovery - Pitzkey
      • Jitterbuffer settings in PJSIP configuration file (possible using dialplan functions and
