NetBSD is a common target for asterisk installations and could use some improvements. Improving ISDN puts us back in the running as a high-end installation target.
This project has three milestones:
- add support for the NT (network) side of ISDN to the NetBSD ISDN stack
- interface ISDN (in NT mode) to the Asterisk PBX, which would allow using existing ISDN PBXes as SIP/VoIP phones
- show this makes it easier to test new ISDN card drivers
Previous work in this area can be found at the alternative ISDN driver site.
The student needs access to ISDN and telephony hardware for this project.
