The Digium phones are the only phones exclusively designed for Asterisk. The combination of the App Engine and the Digium Phone Module for Asterisk (DPMA) enables the customization of Digium’s phones. DPMA is a free add-on module that allows Digium phones to access information directly from Asterisk for automatic provisioning and advanced applications including Status, Contacts, Visual Voicemail, Call Queues, One-Touch Recording, Call Parking and others.
