What is the Asterisk SIP Settings Module used for?

The Asterisk SIP Settings Module is used to configure the default settings used for SIP calls.  Since most VOIP calls are sent using SIP, these settings can be very important to the operation of your PBX.  Because this module sets the default settings, most of these settings can be overriden for a particular extension in the Extensions Module or for a particular trunk in the Trunks Module.

How Do I Get to the Asterisk SIP Settings Module?

  • From the top menu click Settings
  • In the drop down click Asterisk SIP Settings

  1. The Codecs statement is very misleading. PERHAPS, if you live in the US then ULAW will be the most commonly used Codec, however if you live anywhere else it will be ALAW.  My perhaps statement is for everyone that is using g.729 or similar compressed codec (basically every mobile / cell call we have) or anyone putting calls across a WAN.

    Google to learn more, because the opinion above is not correct.

  2. I'm sure you're right.  


    I live in the U.S. and only use U.S. based VOIP Providers.  However, I suspect that my statements are also correct for all of North America (i.e., U.S. and Canada), and maybe even Central and South America).  

    Since it's a Wiki, please feel free to change it to reflect your experiences.

  3. When I try an access the Admin it asks to register for a free trial account. Whatever information I put in the fields it tells me the address is wrong. Help
