British Computer Society (Northampton) - Voip PBX Workshop

Taken from:

May 16th 2015 - Voip PBX Workshop

Location: Room NW041 in The Newton Building, Avenue Campus, University Of Northampton, NN2 6JD

Presenter: John Blackburn

Arrive at 10:00am for a 10:30am start. Finish 16:00 approx

Follow up to successful VOIP presentation, take part in a workshop where we form into small workgroups to:

  • Install and configure a FreePBX (Asterisk) VOIP PBX to a Raspberry PI.
  • Install a physical VOIP phone and a lap top soft phone to connect to the PBX.
  • Form VOIP trunks to interconnect to other PI PBXs and make routed calls.
  • Configure a trunk to an external VOIP provider and make external calls.
  • If time allows, configure phone services and directories.

There will be an initial presentation followed by the workshop tasks where you can work your way step by step to a functioning private telephone network. 

There will be advice and help throughout.

If possible, bring a laptop - the workshop will form attendees into 5 workgroups each working on their own small PBX configured using a laptop. It is envisaged that there will be up to 5 attendees in each workgroup.

Social Analysis of Publications

The Computing staff's network of co-authors, at the University of Northampton, based on the University's  research repository NECTAR - on 12th November 2016. The data goes back to 2010.

The data was analysed using the software VOSviewer - free software for visualising networks. Differences in colours represents, the clusters of publications with those authors picked out by the software. The relative size of the circles is the relative number of publications listed; so for the two biggest circles/hubs it relates to 55 and 34 publications in this time period. Some relatively new authors, to the University but not to research, explains some of the 'islands' and the number of publications within it - it only reflects publications whilst at the University of Northampton.

To dig a little deeper, going to  look at the two biggest 'hubs' through their NECTAR records, so potentially going …

Computer lecturer’s research helps improve the next generation of technology

Taken from: A computing lecturer at the University of Northampton, who is researching into how the efficiency of our everyday devices, such as mobile phones, can be improved, has been awarded the best paper at two recent conferences. Dr Michael Opoku Agyeman has written several journal papers focusing on how the next generation of technology can meet the ever increasing demands from consumers. He was invited to present his work at the 19th Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design in Cyprus and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ 14th International Conference in Paris. Part of his research concentrates on whether several processing elements can be incorporated on a single chip, known as System-On-Chip, to improve the efficiency and speed of the computing systems that we use every day, from mobile phones to video-game consoles and even medical equipment…
