Vyatta and Digium, the Asterisk company, has entered a partnership to collaborate on open-source voice and data networks. Vyatta, a provider of open-source data communications, and Digium, an open-source voice communications provider, will work together to make it easier for customers to purchase, deploy, and maintain high-quality, integrated voice and data platforms, the companies said in a joint statement.

SMB and enterprise customers are increasingly seeking telecom and data communications solutions that are more flexible, efficient, and tailored to their specific needs. Open source-based products are uniquely capable of rapid integration and feature flexibility, making them an ideal choice as “unified communications” move up on the IT and business priority list.

The partnership involves both technology and marketing initiatives, and includes efforts to improve VoIP Quality of Service (QoS) and security features in both Digium and Vyatta products. The companies will also focus on making it easier for customers to install and configure a secure, integrated voice and data environment using Digium’s Asterisk and Vyatta’s open-source networking solutions that include routing, firewall, and VPN functionality.

“A partnership between Vyatta and Digium is a natural fit that will leverage our very complementary core competencies to enhance a common mission – to provide SMBs and enterprises with open-source alternatives to expensive and proprietary solutions,” said Bill Miller, vice president of marketing and business development at Digium.

“Voice over IP is now a mainstream technology, and we are poised to do the same with open-source networking,” said Dave Roberts, vice president of strategy and marketing at Vyatta. “By combining the efforts of Vyatta and Digium, the two technology leaders in our respective areas, and working together to expand our marketing reach, we can drive rapid adoption of our solutions.”
