Asterisk protocols

Natively supported VOIP protocols:

  • SIP, Session initiation protocol
  • IAX, IAX2 - Inter Asterisk Exchange protocol (open-source trunking protocol primarily used by Asterisk)
  • MGCP: Media gateway control protocol, IETF - see Megaco
  • H.323 (With the addition of OpenH323 )

There are third-party addons that greatly enhance this list, for example alternative H.323 channels, SCCP/Skinny but also for example OSP.
