It looks like Jeff has sprung another one on the Phone industry. By linking Asterisk servers he has created what looks to me to be a IAX clearing house. Not sure where the P2P is here apart from the servers being linked by Bellster.
“The Bellster challenge for 2005 is to find out whether or not there are still people in the world who would let total strangers place noncommercial phone calls for free in exchange for the ability to do the same thing themselves,” Pulver said in an e-mail.
This sounds a little reminiscent of the MicroTelco concept introduced by many including Quicknet and others several years ago. At any rate it’s always good to see disruptive technology put to good use 🙂
