Does AST mean Asterisk Open Source PBX ?

If so, then yes I am familiar with it's archetechure as I am a former
developer from that project.

You have 3 choices with FreeSWITCH

1) You can open a dedicated connection to mod_event_socket or XMLRPC per
call and issue the originate command from there:
    This will block until you know for sure the outcome of the attempt.  If
it's success it will give you the uuid if not it gives you the cause code.

2) You can use a single mod_event_socket or XMLRPC connection to send all
calls but use the bgapi mechanism which will do the same as above
    only asynchronously, The command will return immediately and the result
will be fired as an event that you can pick up on the same or different
event_socket connection or
    other event consumer such as a custom C,perl,lua etc module.

3) You can use mod_xml_cdr to generate detailed 1-file-per-leg call files
that will tell you when where and why the calls failed or did not fail.
