Sangoma made the announcement at AstriCon, the world’s foremost gathering of the Asterisk open source community currently taking place October 23 through 25, 2012 in Atlanta.

“Outbound call centers strive to optimize profitability by keeping agents on the line with prospects as near to 100 percent of the time as possible.
