Oracle and Asterisk

Oracle is buying software companies at a rapid clip and has also embraced open source and SIP. So if you combine acquisition with open source and VoIP you get Digium as a takeover candidate. Right? A the open source PBX leader Digium would be a perfect company to put in the portfolio of Oracle companies. What do you think?

    Why Digium? Oracle would be far better off if they looked at Pingtel. If anyone looks at the code they are writing at they can experience how powerful the solution is and also see where Pingtel is going with their native 100% SIP approach. The features they are delivering clearly hit the mark for large enterprise and provide a greater market overlap with Oracle. I’ve used both Asterisk and sipxpbx and Asterisk is more of a tool kit while Pingtel has a real enterprise class product. Some company, maybe Oracle, who really understands SIP and has a strategic need for it, will end up taking Pingtel out.

    Excellent points. There is also the Asterisk Business Edition. Any comments on that?
