"Bayonne is a fairly established and ambitious project who's goal, along that of the larger GNU Telephony Project, GNUCOMM, is to provide scalable free software based telephony solutions that are useful for individuals, for the small office and large commercial enterprise, and for commercial carriers, that can displace the proprietary solutions commonly used in the telecom industry today. In addition to being a GNU package and a part of GNUCOMM, Bayonne is also represented within the GNU Enterprise project."

"Bayonne primarily focuses on voice response and what is commonly called a telephony "application server". Bayonne is written in C++, has a fully threaded architecture, and is bound together by a common scripting core and DSO plugins. Other parts of GNUCOMM will focus on many related and useful areas in providing a complete free software telephony solution."

"Bayonne will soon reach release 0.5.17. This release represents a fairly stable and functional multi-line voice response telephony server that already works with a fair number of single and multi-li ne analog (and soon digital) telephony cards available under GNU/Linux, and that can be made to support Voicetronix hardware under FreeBSD. However, there are still many areas of development that have not yet been addressed."
