Asterisk is a hybrid TDM and packet voice PBX (Private Branch eXchange) and IVR platform with ACD functionality. It acts as middleware between the Internet (IAX, SIP, MGCP, Skinny, H.323), telephony channels (like Zaptel, T1, PRI, E1, FXO, FXS, VoIP, VoFR, ISDN, modems, Internet Phone Jack, etc.), and applications (like voice-mail, conferencing, directories, MP3 players, intercoms, etc.). It has many advanced features such as a codec translation API. The base distribution includes several channel backends, as well as applications. However, the beauty of Asterisk is its ability to be extended using its APIs, dynamic module loader, and AGI scripting interface. End users can even write their own applications that run on the system in C or any scripting language of their choice.
This package contains generic Linux drivers for the Conexant HCF (controllerless) modem family used by many modem and computer system manufacturers. They should work on most current Linux distributions, based on the 2.4.x kernels. Some systems may require kernel recompilation with special ACPI patches.
This package contains generic Linux drivers for the Conexant (formerly Rockwell) Softmodem HSF modem family, which are used by many modem and computer system manufacturers. They should work on most current Linux distributions, based on the 2.4.x kernels. A Pentium processor with the MMX enhancements is required. Some systems may require kernel recompilation with special ACPI patches. Preemptible kernels are not yet supported.
picocom is a minimal dumb-terminal emulation program. It is ideal for embedded systems since its memory footprint is minimal (less than 20K, when stripped). Apart from being a handy little tool, the source distribution includes a simple, easy to use, and thoroughly documented terminal-management library.
The JavaBluetooth Stack is a 100% Java implementation of the Bluetooth specifications version 1.1. It uses the javax.comm package to address the Bluetooth chip, and implements the JSR-82 (javax.bluetooth) API. It currently supports HCI, L2CAP, and SDP. Support for RFCOMM, TCS, and SCO is planned, as well as implementations of specific Bluetooth profiles such as the Handsfree-Profile and the Generic Audio/Video Distribution Profiles. Deployment on the TINI Embedded Java platform is possible.
