Take the stairs or elevator to the lower level and head East, though you will quickly lose orientation. Look for room 86-01 and note that the parking garage also provides access from a level below for $6, up from $1.50 or so. :(

Most medium to larger businesses use central PBX phone systems to save money on telephone lines. Over the last decade the business PBX has gradually evolved towards Voice over IP hardware and away from traditional digital phones. Proprietary VoIP PBX systems such as Panasonic, Cisco and Mitel are available but costly. This presentation will cover how companies can take advantage of open standards such as SIP and LDAP and software such as Asterisk to have an inexpensive PBX that has features of the large, expensive and proprietary systems. An Asterisk system will be demonstrated and used as a sample system for the presentation.

Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 1945 NW Quimby St. after the meeting.
