Commercial Modules

AMD Mods - DEBIAN 8 is NOT SUPPORTED. FreeSWITCH provides a licensed commercial Answering Machine Detection module for $50 per channel, A key technology for autodialers is the ability to detect live human pickup and answering machine. Since there is no indication/hardware signal when a call is answered by an answering machine or voicemail system, autodialer systems have to analyze incoming audio in order to make a prediction. Currently, there is no algorithm that can achieve 100% accuracy.
