VoIP channels in Asterisk represent connections to the protocols they support. Each protocol you wish to use requires a configuration file, containing general parameters defining how your system handles the protocol as well as specific parameters for each channel (or device) you will want to reference in your dialplan. In this appendix, we’ll take an in-depth look at the IAX and SIP configuration files.
