Xorcom Digital IP Gateways

Xorcom Ltd. is a contributing member of the Asterisk community. We develop software and hardwareaimed to reduce the complexity of setting up Asterisk PBXs in order to shorten the set-up time andmake Asterisk available for a wider range of users.

Their tools and hardware are designed for use by Asterisk VARs and resellers.

Astribank is a USB channel bank especially designed for Asterisk Open Source PBX systems

Astribank connects to the Asterisk IP-PBX server via USB 2.0, thus eliminating the need for an intermediating PCI (the solution used by other channel banks).
Astribank USB channel bank extends the functionality of Asterisk-based IPX systems.

Mechanical Design

The internal design of Astribank is modular, offering a wide variety of FXS, FXO, BRI ISDN and I/O port combinations.

Multiple Astribank units may be connected to a single Asterisk server using different USB 2.0 ports, a USB 2.0 hub or USB 2.0 PCI card.

Astribank comes in a professional industry standard 19” 1U rack- or wall-mountable chassis. Some of BRI and PRI Astribanks are available in 19” 1U and 10” compact dimensions


Astribank's driver has been included as an official part of Zaptel (now DAHDI) since release 1.2.4 (Feb. 2006), making Astribank integral with Asterisk systems. Today Astribank is tested with Debian, CentOS 5 and trixbox (CentOS 4).
