View image | gettyimages.com We promised to provide the Incredible PBX 13.2 ISO build environment for those of you that wanted to learn how to roll your own ISO. Why would you want to do such thing? Well, we can think of a number of reasons. First, you may just want to learn how sh*t works. Or you may want to impress your boss by building a custom ISO with the corporate logo splattered all over the place. Then there… Read More ›

View image | gettyimages.com We promised to deliver the Incredible PBX™ ISO build environment this week, but that didn’t really have much sex appeal for Cyber Monday. Instead, today we’re introducing the product that tops the 2016 Wish List from Nerd Vittles readers: a stripped down, lean and mean version of Incredible PBX 13 with just the operating system platform, the latest version of Asterisk® 13, and an uncluttered Incredible GUI with the basic collection of FreePBX® GPL modules… and… Read More ›

The Incredible PBX 13 ISO was getting long in the tooth. It’s been on the street almost two months. So we’re pleased to accept the Sangoma challenge and introduce the second-generation Incredible PBX 13.2 ISO. Like its predecessor, it’s 100% open source and GPL code. Perhaps now Sangoma will follow suit with their closed source ISO. The new Incredible PBX 13.2 ISO can be burned to either a DVD-ROM or a 1GB or larger USB flash drive using a Mac,… Read More ›

2015 has been quite the year for the Asterisk® VoIP community. First came the surprise announcement that Sangoma® had acquired FreePBX®. Next, Digium® caved on Asterisk-GUI and adopted FreePBX as their "free" distribution giving Sangoma a virtual monopoly in the Asterisk graphical user interface and aggregation market. And then the fireworks began. There were only two open source and GPL-compliant Asterisk aggregations left: Elastix® and PBX in a Flash™. We had been on a downhill slide with the Schmoozers for… Read More ›

View image | gettyimages.com One of the biggest jokes in the U.S. telecommunications industry has been the FCC’s Do Not Call List, a convenient source of working phone numbers for all the spammers on Planet Earth to use. Despite the threat of heavy fines, the FCC received 215,000 complaints in 2014 regarding unwanted robocalls and spam texts. In June, the FCC promulgated new rules clarifying that service providers could offer robocall-blocking technologies to consumers and implement market-based solutions that consumers… Read More ›

View image | gettyimages.com 2015 marks the year we finally settled upon an Asterisk® platform that was not only feature rich but also easy to deploy and maintain. Incredible PBX™ began as an add-on feature set for PBX in a Flash™. But we really wanted a pure open source platform that was built from the ground up. So we introduced a number of stand-alone installers that could be deployed using existing Linux platforms: CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, Raspbian, and even FreePBX®… Read More ›

With the advent of cloud-based computing and desktop virtual machine platforms like VirtualBox, we haven’t played with dedicated hardware for Asterisk® in a couple of years. WOW! It’s just amazing the quantum leaps in miniaturization, price, and performance that have transpired during our absence. Last week, we introduced a dedicated server platform for under $200 that could serve as a small business PBX for almost any 20-30 person organization. Today, meet Big Brother. You’re looking at all the components that… Read More ›

Remember when you could buy an awesome server for under $200? Thanks to Intel® and Yogi Berra, it’s déjà vu all over again! Years ago we discovered a machine called the Acer Revo that could be had for about $200. It met all of the Unified Communications requirements that a home office or small office could dream of, but then they doubled in price. That led us to the Raspberry Pi 2. While it met the basic needs for most… Read More ›
