The sprint that copied remaining pages from the old mediawiki to Confluence has given us all the documentation fit to print, however they are not organized well. This means that the Table of Contents will look very different as pages are re-ordered to their final location. It is best to use the search function or click on a label (tag) to find related pages for now.
What Is FreeSWITCH? is an open source carrier-grade telephony platform implemented as a back-to-back user agent. Because of this design it can perform a great number of different tasks from a PBX to transit switch, TTS (text-to-speech) conversion, audio and video conferencing host, and even a VoIP telephone and more.
Newcomers should start with the Introduction page in the table of contents and follow the child pages for further information. The documentation is not perfect so we rely on your help to improve it with suggestions from a fresh viewpoint.
This online documentation wiki will parallel the ongoing development by the FreeSWITCH™ core development team in concert with contributions from the open source user community. When a new stable version is released a snapshot of this online document will be copied to a static online version at the same time to provide a reference in the future to those still running older code. This online reference will always track the latest version of code available from the git repository .
The online educational guide introduces system administrators who are new to the FreeSWITCH™ Community Project to the architecture, standards, and best practices to get you up and running quickly and to avoid trouble in the future.
