"SfA comes at critical time for Skype, as eBay
(NASDAY:EBAY) divests itself of majority ownership in its Internet
phone unit. While ownership is changing, usage of Skype continues
to grow, with 405 million users at the end of 2008.
""SfA is an add-on channel driver for Asterisk that leverages
the power of Asterisk to route calls through the Skype community,"
Peter Engler, Digium's product manager for strategic products, told
InternetNews.com. "A soft phone or hard phone would connect to an
Asterisk PBX and the call routing in Asterisk would determine the
route of a call, which could be over Skype, to a traditional
provider’s service or any other avenue the administrator
sets. All Skype features work transparently with soft phones being
SIP or IAX clients.""
